Develop your Confidence

Develop your Confidence

Keith over To-Done has written a very nice article on confidence. He showed couple of tips on how to develop your self-confidence:

  • Just Do It
  • Recall past successes
  • Positive thinking
  • Remind what doesn’t kill me makes me stronger
  • Take deep breaths
  • Go through my “kudos” file
  • Focus on one thing and take it slow
  • Listen, think, then speak
  • Remember that I’m not the only one who feels this way

Those are very effective ways on overcoming your lack of confidence.

Here is one more thing that I do to develop confidence – Repetitions. I used to struggle with public speaking and I was not totally comfortable to speak in front of people. I tried to overcome lack of confidence on presentation by finding opportunities to practice and practice until I am not afraid on it anymore. This is a very useful ways on gaining confidence over a task.

The Lifehack Show Episode 6: On Friendship and Belonging

In this episode, we talk with Dr. Kyler Shumway, Doctor of Clinical Psychology and author of The Friendship Formula: How to Say Goodbye to Loneliness and Discover Deeper Connection. In his earlier years, Dr. Shumway was a target of bullying; he also found himself plagued with social anxiety, which he still battles today, yet also uses as an empowering guide to help others overcome social anxiety and form solid, lasting friendships within their own lives.

Dr. Shumway is an advocate for friendship and believes that: “… together, we can bring an end to the bullying problem by breaking the chain of suffering, daring to be different, and creating a world where everyone belongs.”
