How The World’s Top Achievers Dominate Every Aspect Of Their Lives
Have you been thinking of ways to grow your confidence? Do you feel that fear has taken over a huge part of your life and is holding you back from living your true purpose? Do you want to shake all that fear and have unstoppable confidence that will leave people in awe of you? This article will run you through the simple tips and techniques to shake all that fear and self-judgment so that you take control and live a purposeful and happy life.
Steps To Building An Unshakeable Confidence
Step 1: Step Out Of Your Comfort Zone If you are going to have unshakeable confidence, you have to be willing to step out of your comfort zone so that you can do things out of the ordinary. You have to stir up that urge burning within you to be extraordinary.
Step 2: Know Your Worth The very first step is for you to define your values. According to Tony Robbins, an author, there are two major distinct values; end values and means values. These two types of values are linked to the emotional state you desire; happiness, sense of security, and fulfillment among others.
Every time a value is born, existence takes on a new meaning; every time one dies, some part of that meaning passes away. - Joseph Wood Krutch
Step 3: Be Ready To Embrace Change For you to develop a strong sense of confidence, it is important that you start by beating the habit of self-judgment and negative criticism. Yes, this is something that can be difficult at first, but when you start to practice it, you realize how retrogressive that was.
Step 4: Be Present Are you thinking of dinner reservations while in a meeting? Do you think that you are not good enough? To call yourself out of these negative thoughts means that you mentally check in on yourself every often. Once you have the answer to your question, take in a deep breath and bring back your focus on your most important things.

Experience and Celebrate Small Victories The reward does not have to be big. Even a simple pat on the back or just a simple compliment from a colleague is adequate to boost your level of confidence. Therefore, ensure that you keep track of each small achievement and allow yourself to fully experience it. This way, you will start to feel your confidence growing every single day.
Exercise Passionate Faith One of the qualities I admire about confident people is that they have faith in a supreme being. They believe that the creator of the universe has a purpose for every living soul. In other words, the reason why we are on earth at this time is to discover and fulfill our higher purpose.
Enable a Firm Resolve In this life, it is natural that you will face setbacks and disappointments along the way. It is, therefore, natural to feel angry and discouraged. However, it is important that you view these setbacks as an opportunity for learning. Start seeing your setbacks as a set up for something bigger yet to happen in your future.
Enlist Expert Help Identify areas where you have gaps in knowledge and would like to fill them up. Once you do that, enlist help for professionals that will help you gain more knowledge and experience. Knowing that you have experts’ guidance, you will also be more confident when taking action and making decisions.
Visualize Confidence When you can see yourself as someone confident, then confidence will become a trait that is easy and natural to manifest in real life. You start to experience it firsthand. Take a minute to imagine yourself having the confidence that you need in a certain situation.
Expect To Be Confident Did you know that expectations are faith in actions? At this point, you have already envisioned yourself being confident and how that would make you feel. When you are confident, you will talk, act, and move assuredly and with so much zeal as you pursue your goals. This is when you know that you have the sight, emotions, and actions of a confident person. In other words, you will be better positioned to achieve above and beyond your expectations. When you expect to be confident, it becomes a reality.
