Self-Confidence Can Put You In Control
By Tom Herrin
There are a lot of variables that can cause us to underperform. Stress, pain, illness, insecurity, and a list of others can result in our ability to do our best being diminished. Many times when our performance falls below our expectations, our confidence spirals downward. It is a natural occurrence. The causes can be interconnected as well. When the feelings we have about ourselves are weakened, we begin to question our own abilities. As this deteriorating situation continues, we become our own worst enemy. Improving our own self-confidence can help us to gain control over these things. We literally turn the table on the events in our lives.
Take Small Steps
In order to increase self-confidence, we have to take some kind of action. One of the best things to do is control our eating habits. Though it may sound difficult, we can determine what we eat. Controlling eating habits is a definite confidence builder. Making good choices reinforces the feeling we have of mastery. We will actually see results. Another thing is to get enough sleep. Sometimes this can be a challenge, but it can be another success. A few nights of adequate rest can change our outlook.
Once we get a few small things done, we can go for something bigger. Exercise can always make us feel better. We will be invigorated after going through a successful workout. It doesn’t have to be heavy or long, but it needs to be regular. After establishing a schedule of exercise that we can actually keep, we will feel that we can be in charge of our own lives. You can take a bigger role in maintaining your health. It is measurable. When you see better numbers in blood tests, blood pressure, sugar level, and many other such things, you will have a feeling that you are in control of your life rather than being controlled by it.
Step Out And Meet People
You will be surprised by how much better you will feel interacting with others when you gain greater self-confidence. It will show. Socializing will be more enjoyable. Seeking out something that you have really wanted to do will seem more attainable. You will believe in yourself because you have already experienced some success. Other people will recognize a new you. Let it show. Plan activities and carry out your plans. Self-confidence really will allow you to be in control of your life, and just like so many other things, the more success you have, the easier it will become.
