Self Confidence and Motivation
Definition: Self Confidence
 Self confidence relates to self-assuredness in one’s personal
judgment, ability ,power etc.
 Freedom from doubt; belief in yourself and your abilities.
 Famous Quote on Self Confidence by Raj Persaud “Promise
yourself, no matter how difficult the problem life throws at
you, that you will try as hard as you can to help yourself. You
acknowledge that sometimes your efforts to help yourself
may not result in success, as often being properly rewarded
is not in your control”.
Self confidence and motivation
Factors affecting self-confidence
 Self-esteem has been directly connected to an individual's social
network, the activities they participate in, and what they hear
about themselves from others.
 Positive self-esteem has been linked to factors such as
psychological health, mattering to others, and both body image
and physical health.
 On the contrary, low self-esteem has been associated with the
outcomes of depression, health problems, and antisocial
behaviour.
 Usually, adolescents of poor health will display low self-esteem.
 During adolescence, self-esteem is affected by
age, race, ethnicity, puberty, health, body height, body
weight, body image, involvement in physical activities, gender
presentation, gender identity, and awakening or discovery of
sexuality.
 An individual's self-confidence can vary in different
environments, such as at home or in school.
How to build Self Confidence: 12
Steps
Step 1: Recognize your insecurities
 What does that voice in the back of your mind say? What
makes you uncomfortable or ashamed of yourself? This
could be anything from acne, to regrets, friends at school or
a past traumatic or negative experience.
 Whatever is making you feel unworthy, ashamed, or
inferior, identify it, give it a name, and write it down. You can
also tear these written pieces to start feeling positive on
those points.
Step 2: Talk about it with friends and
loved ones.
 Wear it on your sleeve. Each day you should chip away at it;
wear it down. There's no quick fix. Get to the root of the
problem; focus on it and understand that you need to resolve
each issue before you can move on.
 Check if it's an old past emotion and if it is really still relevant
or applicable in your life today. And that doesn't mean you
have to get rid of whatever makes you feel bad (many
times, you simply can't). You need to learn to accept
yourself, your past, your circumstances as they are, without
necessarily thinking of them as "bad".
Step 3: Bounce back from your
mistakes
 Remember that no one is perfect. Even the most confident
people have insecurities. At some point in any of our lives, we
may feel we lack something. That is reality.
 Learn that life is full of bumps down the road. And that often
these insecure feelings come and go, depending on where
we are, who we are with, the mood we're in, how we are
feeling. In other words, they are not constant.
Step 4: Identify your successes
 Everyone is good at something, so discover the things at which
you excel, then focus on your talents. Give yourself permission
to take pride in them. Give yourself credit for your successes.
 Inferiority is a state of mind in which you've declared yourself a
victim. Do not allow yourself to be victimized. Express
yourself, whether it's through art, music, writing, etc. Find
something you enjoy. Everyone is born with talents and
strengths. You can develop and excel in yours.
Step 5: Be thankful for what you have
 A lot of the times, at the root of insecurity and lack of
confidence is a feeling of not having enough of
something, whether it's emotional validation, good
luck, money, etc.
 By acknowledging and appreciating what you do have, you
can combat the feeling of being incomplete and unsatisfied.
Finding that inner peace will do wonders for your confidence.
Step 6: Be positive, even if you don’t feel
the same way
 Avoid self-pity, or the pity and sympathy of others. Never allow
others to make you feel inferior--they can only do so if you let
them. If you continue to loathe and belittle yourself, others are
going to do and believe likewise.
 Instead, speak positively about yourself, about your future, and
about your progress. Do not be afraid to project your strengths
and qualities to others. By doing so, you reinforce those ideas
in your mind and encourage your growth in a positive
direction.
Step 7: Accept Compliments gracefully
 Don't roll your eyes and say, "Yeah, right," or shrug it off. Take it
to heart and respond positively("Thank you" and a smile works
well).
Step 8: Look at the mirror and smile
 Studies surrounding what's called the "facial feedback
theory" suggest that the expressions on your face can actually
encourage your brain to register certain emotions.
 So by looking in the mirror and smiling every day, you might
feel happier with yourself and more confident in the long
run.
Step 9: Fake It
 Along the same lines of smiling to make yourself feel
happy, acting confident might actually make you believe it.
Pretend you're a completely confident version of you; go
through the motions and see how you feel!
Step 10: Stick to your principles
 It might be tough, but if you don't have something you can
believe in, you don't have anything. If you don't stand for
something, you will fall for anything.
 No matter what's happened in your life, you can always lay claim
to the fact that from this day forward, you've followed your
principles to the best of your ability.
Step 11: Help Others
 When you know you're kind to the people around you, and
are making a positive difference in other people's lives (even
if it's just being kinder to the person who serves you coffee in
the morning), you'll know that you are a positive force in the
world--which will boost your self confidence.
Step 12: Avoid Perfectionism
 Perfectionism paralyzes you and keeps you from
accomplishing your goals.
