Empowerment Tips
 
How to Gain More Confidence
 
Few people are as confident as they would ultimately like to be. Even if you don’t feel like confidence is your strong suit, there are certain things that you can do to improve. Confidence is a skill like any other and to make it stronger, you must practice it. 
 
 
1.) Let go of the Small Stuff
Many times people get caught up in focusing on the little things that don't really matter. This tends to overwhelm you and gets you distracted from what is really important. Let go of the little things and let yourself get inspired by the big picture.
 
2.) Begin With the End in Mind
So many people get caught up in the process and forget about the purpose. Stop getting caught up in the motions of what you're doing day to day and get aligned with the purpose of your actions. Have a vision of where you want to go and let that fuel your confidence. 
 
3.) Focus on What you CAN Control
A lack of confidence is directly related to a lack of control. If you focus on what you can't control, you will be in a constant state of fear. Confidence comes when you focus on what you can control and take action towards changing it for the better. 
 
4.) Focus on Other People 
Whether you are speaking in front of a group of people or just trying to have the courage to talk to someone, focusing on yourself will keep you from being fully confident. Let go of what other's may think of you and focus on what they need. 
 
5.) Eliminate Your Comfort Zone
Confidence is a skill of growth. To become more confident, you need to constantly grow. Always push yourself to do the things you fear so that you can learn to be comfortable with being uncomfortable. 
 
6.) Surround Yourself With Confident People
You become who you surround yourself with. If you want to become more confident, surround yourself with confident people. Confidence is something that is contagious so make sure to surround yourself with it as much as possible. 
 
7.) Just be Yourself
People are naturally drawn to those that are able to be who they truly are - it is the ultimate sign of confidence. Being yourself is the best way to show the people around you that you are confident in the person that you are. 
 
Confidence comes from what you are willing to do. It is a skill like anything else and it needs to be developed. Put these tools into action so that you can become more confident and inspire others to do the same.
