This not only limits your potential in life; it also minimizes your ability to make a positive impact on the world around you. You may need to challenge limiting beliefs formed years ago, or take yourself out of a situation where other people undermine your abilities. One thing that will definitely help is working on your confidence. Not sure if confidence can be learned? I asked this question on the Tiny Buddha Facebook to see what readers had to say and then used some of their responses to shape the steps outlined below:.
Sometimes you have to dig deep to find it again. You came out blissfully unaware of external judgment, concerned only with your own experience and needs. Once you developed a sense of self-awareness, you started forming doubts and insecurities about how other people saw you. You learned to crave praise and avoid criticism, and maybe you started getting down on yourself if you got more of the latter than the former. When you start feeling unsure of yourself remember: we were all born with confidence, and we can all get it back if we learn to silence the thoughts that threaten it.
As you learn who you are, you gain confidence in your strengths and also learn your weaknesses. For one thing, it can be hard to know which parts of you are you , and which parts are who you think you should be. A good start is to identify your strengths and weaknesses and then weigh those against what you enjoy.
Make an effort to utilize some of the first list and work on some of the second every day. Confidence comes from success…But confidence also combines another quality because you can be successful, yet lack confidence. It requires a mental attitude shift to an expectation of success. And this alone, can bring about more success, reinforcing the confidence. It spirals from there. Have you ever gone into a stressful situation assuming the worst—that something would go wrong?
Pessimism can undermine your performance creating a self-fulfilling prophecy. Confidence comes not from knowing you know everything, but from knowing you can handle what comes up. No one in the world knows everything. Everyone is good at some things and not so good at others. If someone criticizes you, take it as an opportunity to improve. If someone does better than you, see it as an opportunity to learn from them. If you fall short at something, realize you can get closer next time. Confidence comes from a space of humility. It is spawned when we dare to see the world through an alternate lens.
It grows when we have the courage to embrace the experience of the unknown and the unknowable. People often think confidence means knowing you can create the outcome you desire. No matter how talented, smart, or capable you are, you cannot predict or control everything that happens in your life. Confidence is a funny thing. When I first moved to San Francisco, I was highly insecure with relationships. Eventually I realized the only way out was through. I had to crawl, walk, fall, and repeat to get comfortable with vulnerability and conflict. I made tons of mistakes, and a lot of it hurt.
Taking a compliment is an art. Occasionally, this may be true, but for the most part you earn the praise you receive. Instead, recycle it into confidence. You did a fantastic job on your project at work; that means you can do it again. Other people want you to succeed.
Like anything else in life, your confidence will improve with practice. A great opportunity to do this is when you meet new people. Just like if you were the new kid in school, they have no idea who you are—meaning you have an opportunity to show them.
As you shake their hand, introduce yourself, and listen to them speak, watch your internal monologue. If you start doubting yourself in your head, replace your thoughts with more confident ones. Ask yourself what a confident person would do and then try to emulate that. Watch your posture and your tone. Hunching and mumbling will make you feel and look less confident, so stand up and speak slowly and clearly.
People are more apt to see you how you want to be seen if they suspect you see yourself that way. Knowing that intellectually is the first step to believing it in your heart. Believing it is the key to living it. And living it is the key to reaching your potential. When the s get a little high, it can be hard to keep up! Lori Deschene is the founder of Tiny Buddha.

It's ours. It's not about me. It's about us. Your stories and your wisdom are just as meaningful as mine. I asked this question on the Tiny Buddha Facebook to see what readers had to say and then used some of their responses to shape the steps outlined below: 1. Tap into the confidence you were born with. Know your strengths and weaknesses. Expect success. Trust your capabilities. Embrace the unknown. Even confident people lose jobs, relationships, and sometimes, their health.
Take risks. Learn to receive praise. Confidence is earned through positive recognition and reinforcement. Practice confidence. It can be practiced—and with that practice you will get better.
