So what can you do to improve your confidence? First of all, it’s useful to identify what those pesky limiting beliefs are. Try to take note of your mental chatter, what is it telling you? I’m not as smart or pretty as that person, or I could never run a 10km race, I’ve never been good at baking. Whatever it is, push through it. You’ll be amazed that you actually can do it, and once you have that negative belief is shattered.
And my favourite method, is to think positively. We will always believe what are minds tell us, and the thoughts in your head will become your reality. Counter the negative thoughts with positive ones. Every time you catch yourself thinking something negative, consciously turn it around to a positive thought. It will become easier and easier the more you do it.
