Confidence: Get It and Keep It

Having confidence is a huge advantage in careers, life, and relationships. It’s the key to attracting the right job, the right people, the right decisions from others, and getting what we want.

Like money, everyone wants more confidence. Some people naturally seem to have it; perhaps they were lucky and had the right kind of parenting. In any case, knowing a few strategies for improving our self-confidence will ensure that we can tap into its power.

Everyone has a baseline of confidence. Some people have unshakable confidence built upon strong foundations; others find their confidence level is a bit shaky when faced with mistakes, criticisms and failures.

Confidence is closely tied with our sense of self-esteem. Self-esteem enables us to experience ourselves not only accurately but gladly. It’s a realistic, appreciative opinion; we are able to be honest about our strengths, weaknesses and everything in between, and still feel good about who we are.

This article examines the foundations of self-esteem, how we lose confidence, and how to restore it by reframing automatic negative thoughts.

The article includes these concepts:

  • Foundations of Self-Esteem
  • Unconditional Worth
  • Unconditional Love
  • Growth
  • How We Lose Confidence
  • Getting Rid of Negativity
