4. Stand Up For Yourself
You need to become independent. If there are any unfiled taxes, the money you need to pay to settle debts, bills overdue, etc. You need to start shedding some of the burdens on your shoulders to move ahead. When you become dependent on others for your survival then you also lose confidence. Take a stand, stand for yourself starting from today. Decrease your unnecessary expenses and start by investing. Start learning, education is a great investment to start with.
5. Calculate The Distance
Whom do you admire? What do they do? Why do you admire them? Who are the top players in your field of work? Make a detailed plan of all of this and link it to your dreams. Calculate the distance and plan how you are going to bridge the gap. The plan should be simple and doable. Plan how you are going to proceed. The last step: Start. When you have a dream that you want to achieve, then the journey should be well planned in your mind. It helps build confidence and also motivates people to keep going.
6. Keep A Record
Keep a short and brief record of all your achievements. Celebrate your victories and losses. Enjoy, but don’t get overwhelmed. The journey is still far from complete. Don’t ignore your gains, no matter how small they are. You have worked hard for them and invested a lot of time. Enjoy them but don’t lose the sight of your goal.
The lack of confidence is something that you can cover up in a day. It is not a product but more of a process that keeps going on. Even if you boost your self-esteem tomorrow, you will have to maintain it and that is hard. It is something you need to carry but at the same time no need to carry all the burdens shed them off. If you think someone is expecting from you, then too don’t weigh yourself down. You have given them reasons to believe in you. It means that it is in you. Build your confidence, not because others want you to do something but because that is something is necessary for you and is yours. Just go at your own pace and remember failure is not the end. You can always start again.
