Real confidence takes effort to attain so be sure that it’s not undermined. Here are four habits you need to avoid if you want astonishing confidence. 

  1. Engaging in negative self-talk. At one point in your life that mean inner coach may have motivated you. But now, it could be holding you back and lowering your self-esteem. 
  1. Caring too much about what other people think. Seeking approval from other people reinforces the idea that you need external validation. To build yourself up, stop trying to meet other people’s expectations, and start appreciating yourself.
  1. Seeing only shortcomings rather than opportunities for growth. Focusing on limitations only builds their strength. Reframe all shortcomings as areas for growth, and then start taking action to create meaningful progress.
  1. Filling your life with screens and stimulation rather than quiet introspection. Stop overstimulating your brain by staring at screens all day. All brilliant minds read and reflect. It’s time for you to build a foundation for success and confidence instead of binging on superficial entertainment.
