Like physical exercise, self confidence exercises are a way of building strength. Instead of focusing on physical strength, you build character, mental health and self-respect. Building self-confidence is a mental exercise. It is about doing courage and taking risks. I am saying doing courage and not building courage since courage is already within you. You just need to make decision and act upon it. Taking risks are the very first steps toward building self-worth.
When you build up your courage, you improve your self-esteem and become more assertive. You are more likely to take risks that will guide you toward your destination while challenging yourself. Every time you face fear and anxiety, you also have an opportunity to grow and build your self esteem. Fear will fall way behind you when you build up your courage level. You must not allow your fears to take control of your life, you must gain as much courage as possible to master all of your fears.
Improving your courage will help you manage your life more effectively. You will learn new ways to take responsible actions and accept their consequences. Courageous individuals reflect on their actions and learned from it. They learned from their mistakes and accept them no matter what. They also accept the challenge and see that as an opportunity
To do courage, you must be willing to put forth the effort to find these resources. You may feel intimidated at times. However, this is normal. And if you are willing to take these situations with an open mind, and accept the challenge (see it as an opportunity), you will find it easier to improve your self-esteem.
Confidence is an “action energy.” It is the ability to face fear, loss, change and challenges. Confidence and assertiveness is characterized by durability, resiliency and also flexibility. Self-confidence provides the capacity to live a full and creative life, and the flexibility to deal with life’s inevitable challenges.
