Building and Maintaining Self Confidence

Hello Everyone! 

I have an inspirational post for you today about building self confidence.

I think at some point in our lives, people question their level of self confidence. Let explain further what I mean. In life there can be constant pressure to be perfect (which is impossible) or have nay sayeres in your ear making negative comments. It's easier said than done to ignore negative influences. Here are a few ways to build and maintain self confidence. 

1. Accept/Acknowledge Your Insecurities and Imperfections

Like I mentioned nobody is perfect, nor should you try to be. I think imperfections are what make people unique. You may not love yourself 100%, but if you can like yourself and the qualities you possess you're heading toward the right direction of building self confidence. If you do decide to make changes, make sure your changes will make you  happy and won't negatively affect your health or well being.

2. Acknowledge Things You Do Well

Everyone does something well, so learn to embrace it and use your talent(s)

3. Pamper Yourself

Every now and then we all should treat ourself to some pampering.  Yes, it's true that confidence comes from within,  but there is absolutely nothing wrong with focusing on your outside apperance. Get a new hairstyle, or a new outfit etc. Sometimes a little "pick me up" can boost your confidence too. However, you should work on your inner self first because that's what truly matters most ☺

4. Stay Positive

In order to buld and maintain self confidence, you have to be positive. You can't be truly happy with yourself and in general if you're constantly negative, doubftul etc. all the time. Try to keep a positive attitude and outlook about yourself.

Those are a few tips I feel can help build self confidence. What tips do you think are important to build and maintain self confidence ? 

Side Note: I know this Inspirational post was long overdue since I haven't written one in awhile so I'm going to start back writting them. Also If you want me to write about a topic and share my thoughts let me know in the comments section 

Thanks for reading!

Pilar

  3. I love your inspirational posts, Pilar!! When I read them, I always feel inspired by how positive you are!! And I truly think it's important for everyone to have some self confidence, even if it's a hard one to gain. It's like that saying, if you pretend to be happy them eventually you will be. Well if you tell your self everyday that your beautiful, then one day you will believe it!

  6. Great post! Sometimes we do feel a bit insecure and just need a little inspiration. When I have a day off, I would give myself a main/pedi and it's so relaxing and fun to do!
