Do you consider yourself one of the people with little confidence in themselves? Did life and situations make you lose faith in yourself? Do you still carry on your back the criticism of others or their bad treatment of you? If your answer is yes, then you came to the right place.

Self-confidence means that your inner world is safe, that you believe in your abilities to achieve success in life, and that you believe in your unique qualities and the way you judge things. And confidence is like a muscle that one can gain and develop over time. But, what does it take to be confident? Do you wake up one day and become more toned and energetic? What are the characteristics of confident people?

Here are 7 qualities of confident people:

1. Confident people are just natural people

Confident people show their true personality and identity to the world, indifferent to others’ opinions, and ignore negative comments. They are comfortable with who they are, love themselves, constantly encourage themselves, and freely express their views. In addition, they have high self-esteem and consider the person in the mirror to be their only competitor and do not belittle others. They are real people and do not try to play roles and live their lives on their own terms. So learn from everyone, but don’t copy anything and just be yourself.

2. Confident people are friends of themselves

They are people who are aware and connected to their inner self, live in the moment, do not make judgments, forgive themselves, and know that perfection is impossible so they accept themselves and enjoy spending time alone. They also believe positive beliefs about themselves, develop their abilities, trust their magic, and take responsibility for what they are and what they do. They pursue their goals with enthusiasm and do not try to prove anything to anyone and consider living happily one of their rights and celebrate their achievements. When we’re honest with ourselves, whatever is toxic and stressful simply falls.

“You have to expect things of yourself before you can do them.” – Michael Jordan

3. Confident people do things they love

When we do something we love, we aren’t just happy, we are also very strong! These people spend their time in what they love to do, work in jobs that allow them to grow and thrive, have high expectations of what they can achieve, and follow their passions. The lack of self-confidence is overcome not only by faith but by action. It is a lack, not of certainty, but a lack of effort. Often times we are sure that we cannot before we give ourselves a fair chance, and they give themselves this opportunity to not only raise their potential but for exploration, adventure and fun as well. You have to be at your best when things are at their worst.

4. Confident people do things with a purpose

Everything these people do is dedicated to a purpose. They don’t do things randomly or without something on their mind. Because they believe in the power of action and the power of choice, they also believe in the power of purpose, so nothing is in vain, and this is the best way to increase effectiveness in whatever we do.

Walk with purpose. Approach life with purpose, enter a room with purpose, and it’s just a matter of time before people are coming over and talking to you. The first rule for advancement and professionalism in any business is the ability to communicate effectively, which is the ability to deal in a way that increases your influence or influence between them.

5. Confident people know their worth

If you think you don’t deserve anything, you won’t get it. These people believe in their value, are well aware of it, and do not give too much weight to be evaluated by others. Emphasizing and relying on what others demand makes a person a prisoner for their opinions. So these people understand that their value is what they give themselves, and they do not wake up in the morning to impress others. When you believe in yourself, others will believe in you, too

6. Confident people are not afraid to say no

Do you find it difficult to say no? As social beings, we are driven to maintain our relationship and it can be difficult to pick, even if this is the right thing for us. Ironically, those who lack self-confidence are often the ones who find it difficult to say no. Have you ever wondered why it was so easy to be rejected when you were a little kid and why it is so difficult now? What happened?

Well as children, we learned that saying no was an impolite or inappropriate behavior. If you said no to your mother, father, teacher, uncle, grandparents, etc., then you were definitely considered rude, and you may have been told that saying no was a forbidden thing. Now that we are all adults, we are becoming more mature and capable of making our own choices, as well as knowing the difference between right and wrong. So a word should not be out of bounds but rather something that we decide upon ourselves based on our own judgment. Don’t hold back just to keep the peace. Defending yourself builds self-confidence and self-esteem, so if you want to say no, be firm and direct.

“Confidence comes from discipline and training.” – Robert Kiyosaki

7. Confident people are mature and constantly learning

The limits of your life are the limits of your thinking. As the saying goes, there are no foreign lands. It’s the traveler only who is foreign hence always be ready to think outside the box and trying out what life offers. To become what we are capable of becoming is the only end of life.

Go beyond boundaries and enjoy the freedom of exploring your mind. Great innovators and past inventors went beyond normal thinking to critiquing occurrences. If you think you are capable of something, most of the time you will maneuver around and achieve it but if you tell your mind that you can’t achieve a goal, failure always pops up.

A positive attitude and an optimistic mind determine the extent of your capabilities. Never devalue the power of thoughts as they are highly influential in shaping our very lives.Everyone has their own measure of success. Don’t ever stop until you reach yours. Once you obtain your personal best, your confidence will soar within. Then, you will find yourself pursuing even more than you ever thought possible before.

4 Reasons Why Content Is Pivotal For Mental Health Healing

Avatar

One of the most important things for an entrepreneur’s mental health is expressing their feelings, thoughts, and emotions. This is where content creation and writing becomes pivotal. Whether you read something that resonates with you or you write a compelling blog post, the act of expressing yourself through content can help to put a smile on your face and make you feel better about things.

Most entrepreneurs don’t spend as much time taking care of their mental health as they should. Over the course of your career, you will experience a lot of ups and downs; these emotions have the potential to take a toll on your mind and body if you don’t learn to manage them properly.

Here are four reasons why expression through content is pivotal for healing, slowing yourself down, and giving yourself grace when the going gets tough.

1. Content can be a form of self-expression

When you are an entrepreneur, you frequently face feelings of insecurity, doubt, fear, apathy, and exhaustion, just to name a few. Some days it feels like no one is on your business’s side and everyone else has it all figured out. On those days some of us try to look at our website’s analytics to cheer up. 

But an even more freeing task is creating content. You create content to improve your business and reach more people’s lives. But, there is something special that happens when you write with the intention of expressing your thoughts and feelings — you open a door to yourself. 

Content is inherently personal, which means content creators open themselves up when they share their thoughts on a platform. Everything from the title of the post, the keywords they choose to include, and even the content itself helps you to understand who the author of that post truly is. And as an entrepreneur, this can be an important experience because it allows others to empathize with you.

2. Self-reflection will lift you up

As you think through what to write about and how to express yourself, the process of self reflection is a valuable step you need to go through. You’re able to reflect on the blessings you have, assess what you learned from the negative experiences, and create a plan on how to maintain the positive experiences you’ve had. 

There are a few ways that self reflection can help you with mental health healing. The act of reflecting on your experiences helps to create clarity in feelings, thoughts and emotions which will eventually lead into acceptance for what has happened or is happening currently without feeling overwhelmed by it all. This process also leads people towards finding new things they enjoy doing. Self reflection is therapeutic and can be implemented anytime you feel the need to overcome overwhelm.

“Writing in a journal each day allows you to direct your focus to what you accomplished, what you’re grateful for and what you’re committed to doing better tomorrow. Thus, you more deeply enjoy your journey each day.” – Hal Elrod

3. A sense of belonging and camaraderie

It is important to have a support network of people who will listen and understand what you are going through. When you post a blog or upload a video on YouTube, there are others who feel the same way and experience a sense of connection with you.

When you put time, attention and thoughtfulness into your writing, it is amazing when someone reads what you’ve written and comments on it thanking you or expressing how they resonate with what you’re going through. It’s hard to put into words how powerful it feels when someone who has gone through the same experience and reads your words then reaches out.  There is power in expression but miracles happen when people bond over a similar experience.

4. Library of content to share with more people

It can be very difficult to know what content to share with people as the symptoms of mental health disorders (anxiety, depression, etc.) vary from person to person. But as you accumulate more and more content, this will increase the number of articles or videos available for readers to choose from depending on their specific purpose. It also builds your personal library of resources you’re able to share to different people you encounter or engage directly with.

As chaotic and distracting social media can be, it can also be a beacon of hope with the right content. Many people share viral posts, or content that interest them. Since your content is valuable and personal, the more you share it, the more likely it is to be shared with the right audience.

You never know who is watching (reading)

Your content is speaking to someone and even though they may not be actively engaged, their experiences with your work are impacting them. Think about the last time you watched TV: did everyone in the room have something entertaining to say? 

You never know who’s watching because there’s always somebody reading your posts or viewing your videos-even if they just skim through it briefly. This is why creating content worth consuming is critical, not only to get you out of your funk, but also to serve your audience.  Be authentic and stay true to yourself; make every post count as an opportunity for connection with your best self and for potential readers to bond with you.

Warren Buffett once said, the best investment you can ever make is in yourself. Time and money spent on bettering yourself are never considered a waste. Whether it’s through learning how to make money online, exploring new ways to increase your financial security, or watching TED talks to expand your knowledge. Do not be stingy when it comes to self-improvement because it will definitely pay off in the end. 

Need some ideas to get started on your journey to becoming a better you? Here are 5 ways to invest in yourself and transform your life. 

1. Change Your Self-Concept

Having a negative self-concept can have a tremendous impact on your life. Limiting beliefs and self-doubt are some of the main reasons why many never achieve or attempt to pursue their dreams. Take a moment and think about all the negative thoughts you have repeated to yourself throughout your life. How have these thoughts impacted the way you live life? From now on, create a new self-image by turning these negative thoughts into positive ones and appreciate your good qualities. 

2. Sign Up For An Online Course

If you’ve been wanting to brush up on your Photoshop skills or learn how to code professionally, this is the perfect time to get started. As long as you have a stable internet connection, you can access an endless amount of valuable information online. For example, sites like Coursera and Youtube are both awesome resources for online learning. With a few search strings and clicks, you can find all the information you need. 

“Investing in yourself is the best investment you can make. It will not only improve your life, it will improve the lives of all those around you.” – Robin Sharma

3. Learn From a Mentor

No matter which stage of your life you are currently in, working with a mentor can help you stay motivated and focused on your goals. Not only can they guide you in the right direction, but also transform your vision, provide you with new insights, and connect you with amazing resources. If you’re feeling unmotivated or unsure about what you want to do in life, consider finding a mentor to help you navigate this process. 

4. Start A Side Hustle

The salary from a 9-5 job would rarely allow you to reach your maximum income potential. Why not achieve financial success while pursuing your passion by starting a side hustle? Whether it’s through starting an ecommerce business, freelance writing on the side, or starting a Youtube channel. There are infinite numbers of ways to make money, and there is bound to be one out there that fits your passion and skills. 

5. Nourish Your Body

As many may say, “health is the new wealth”. Without a healthy and functioning body, living a fulfilling and comfortable life becomes difficult. To take care of your body and prioritize your wellbeing, start with small habits such as eating healthier foods and exercising regularly. Bike or walk to work instead of taking the car, and opt for a healthy protein bowl instead of greasy burgers at Burger King. With time, these small habits can make an incredible difference.

When we are overwhelmed by confusion, our psyche tries to establish certainty to alleviate our discomfort. This is usually accomplished by mentally imagining and acting out a plot. Unfortunately, much of the time, we mentally visualize pessimistic (or worst-case scenario) scenarios to provide certainty. (more…)
