Nothing helps boost positive feelings more than when things are going right.
And nothing makes us doubt ourselves more than when things go wrong.
The trick is to build confidence when you need it most not to wait for things to get better on their own.
Keep a list of accomplishments on your phone notes
Review the list many times during the day (it’s right on your phone)
Include little things – in fact, start with little things
Assume you will succeed not fail
Take time to discard any negative comments from others
Trying and not quitting is a big success – put it on the list
For every criticism, add a compliment – always balance them
Never attack yourself
Remember there is no such thing as constructive criticism
To build confidence it is first important to show love and respect for yourself.
And the most important thing:
Don’t look for confidence in the words of others.
Your confidence is your responsibility.
