3 Techniques to Boost Your Confidence

Posted on August 8, 2013

The way we feel about ourselves greatly influences how we live.

For instance, if you’re self-confident, you probably spend time with and connect with others. If you’re drowning in self-doubt, you might withdraw and isolate yourself.

You also might hyper-focus on your flaws and avoid going after a promotion. You convince yourself you’re simply not qualified or good enough.

If you’re self-confident, however, instead of dwelling on your supposed deficiencies, you might use that energy to pursue the higher-level position, prepare for it and possibly get it. If you don’t, you simply move on to the next opportunity.

Self-confidence “helps us engage fully with life,” said Mary Welford, DClinPsy, a clinical psychologist in the South West of England and author of the new book The Power of Self-Compassion: Using Compassion-Focused Therapy To End Self-Criticism and Build Self-Confidence.
