9 Hacks How To Be More Confident

how to be more confident

Researching and studying on how to be more confident in the past 21 days,  I’ve noticed that highly self confident people share 9 Interesting
things in common, which I’ll share below:

1. Their Opinion of Who They Are is
More Important Than Anyone else’s Opinion

This is fundamentally true because people,even the ones closest to you will always havesome opinions about you, even tho 70% of their
opinions will not really matter to you or will be fundamentally false.

It’s important to understand that Everything comes
from your self-image.

Self Confident people have a realistic appreciation of their own flaws,
and they’re not afraid to show vulnerabilities in intimate relationships.

When you meet such a person you are struck by their
quiet confidence and you notice that this kind of people doesn’t seem
to be making much of an effort to impress you.

What’s important is how we work with what we are given.

2. They Are Honest With Themselves

Let’s face it, we all lie to ourselves.
Social desire to be liked doesn’t just influence what we tell other people, but what we tell ourselves.

When you aren’t honest, you only choose to see what you want to see,
but you ignore what you don’t want to see.

This may provide short-term happiness or relief, but in the long run,
it’s destructive and unhealthy.

How to be more confident then?
Self Confident people are honest with themselves,
but not too judgmental or critical.

The goal isn’t to hurt your self-esteem, but to take the information
of the day and use it to improve tomorrow.

Honesty is something we need to practice on a daily basis.
We don’t just become completely honest with ourselves overnight.

It takes constant self-awareness and consistency.

3. How to Be More Confident
By Putting Yourself First

Putting yourself first is making sure you are physically, emotionally
and mentally in shape.

I suppose you’re well aware of the importance of filling your own cup
first or you will end up with nothing to give to others.

Many will say you’re selfish when you honor yourself first.

There is nothing selfish in trying to be the best version of yourself,
to treat yourself with compassion and kindness and feel awesome about it.

By honoring themselves first, Self Confident People gain:

4. How to Be More Confident
By Having Clarity With Yourself

Self Aware people always seek clarity about the type of
the environment and people, they surround with.

This gives them a strong purpose, direction, and focus in everything
they do since they know precisely how their actions are helping
them reach their goals.

Conversely, when you lack clarity, you can end up drifting in life, surrounded by negative emotions.

According to Brendon Burchard Book: High-Performance Habits,
Clarity has 4 fields that you need to work on to improve:

  1. The Self & knowing exactly what kind of a person you want
    to become. How do you want to describe your ideal self?
  2. The social sphere and being aware and intentional about
    your interactions with others. How do you want to behave socially?
  3. The field of skills and knowing precisely which talents need
    to be developed.
  4.  Service to Others & what service do you want to provide?
    How can you help others with your skills or knowledge?

Asking and answering those questions by myself was really sharpening my focus & thinking, and I highly recommend the book to everyone.

5. Certainty and Uncertainty

It’s a fact that we as Humans need certainty and uncertainty.

But we’re complex creatures and too much certainty will
bring us boredom, too much uncertainty will make us anxious.

Doing the same things over and over, having the same boring job
we don’t like will make us certain

that we’re bored
and lazy.
When we’re bored, life is miserable.

Uncertainty is really what makes the world interesting in its evolution.
The best innovations of the 21st Century were created in uncertain times.

Sure, the unknown is often frightening, but with uncertainty comes the wealth of possibilities that are just around the corner.

Change is constant and so is uncertainty.

6. They Know They’re More
Than Their Thoughts

“You are more than your thoughts, your body, or your feelings.
You are a limitless potential who is here to shake things up and
create something new that the universe has never seen.”
-Dr. Richard Bartlett-

This man said it all because if you let to be controlled and moved in your  life by your 70k daily thoughts and emotions, you’re going to lose yourself in no time.

How to be more confident if I have 70k thoughts to handle
daily you might ask?

Self Confident people know that they are not required
to obey their thoughts and feelings.

Eckhart Tolle in Power of Now Said: People tend to dwell
more on negative things than on good things.

So the mind then becomes obsessed with negative things, with judgments, guilt and anxiety produced by thoughts
about the future and so on.

7. They Take Responsibility

Taking responsibility is one of the best things I’ve ever learned and
done in my life lately.
This is liberating because you realize that you can actually do something about it.

Empowerment Comes Via Responsibility!
Many people live completely disempowered lives because they
haven’t taken full responsibility for their lives.

Now, although bad things do happen in life, we always have a choice
as to how we act and respond to our circumstances.

My Case:

I was worrying a lot that I don’t have enough time in the past 4 months
to finish all my daily tasks, but the reality was I was waking up at 13:00 and went to sleep at 04:00 for 15 months.

With that unbalanced time where all my body and mind functions
were dysfunctional no wonder, I couldn’t achieve my desired results.

Next, here comes November and I decided to Take Responsibility,
and since I read a lot how to be more confident books, almost all
the highly confident people were waking up at 5 am in the morning,
so i thought okay…
I can do the same for some time & see what’s the deal with that 05:00 am..

The Energy, production, motivation-wise levels I have for the day
are mind-blowing.
(Additionally, the course from Jack Canfield really widen my views,
you can see here.)

Going back now changing one habit and taking responsibility
for me opened 10 new doors, so think of something you struggle or
want to change and take responsibility today!

8. How to Be More Confident By Constantly Changing Yourself

Now while some people have fear towards change, and just want to search how to be more confident stuff online without taking any action or experiencing some change, Highly confident people embrace change.

It is change that allows new opportunitiesto reveal themselves to us.

Change allows us to be creative and evolve to be better humans.
That’s why it’s important to be proactive in initiating change.

There’s a classic quote from Jim Rohn:”If you don’t like how things are, change it! You’re not a tree!

As you re-create yourself and embrace change, expect and feel
that the changes you want to make will bring you
a happier & successful life.

9. They Create & Live Their Purpose

Living your life as a drifter as the famous Napoleon Hill calls people
who don’t have a purpose or one big central goal in their life can
be a difficult path to walk and live.
How to be more confident if you’re a drifter?

Confident people have a purpose that guides their life decisions,
influence their behavior, shape their goals, their direction,
and create a meaningful life.

How to be more confident by Creating Your Purpose?

-Make a list of activities that make you happy
-Subject or field of expertise you can talk about for hours?

-What would you love doing for 2 years without getting paid any money?
-What will make you feel excited to get out of bed?

Every single one of us is Unique in some ways,
and I’m a strong believer in that!

The real question is… are you empowered to explore and
model some of the things mentioned above on how to be more
confident and take action today?
