We continue conversation about how to be more confident in yourself. In our previous article How to get self confidence we have agreed not to criticise ourselves. The next step – we start praising ourselves. We mark any achievements during the day. We do compliments to ourselves for each well done work.
You may ask me – What to do if there is nothing to praise for? I will answer you – It is impossible. Even, if you have spent all the day long lying on the sofa, praise yourselves. What for? For finding the time to have some rest.
Well, and if you have got up from the sofa, you did a lot of things. You have worked all the day long or have sent children to school and cleaned your flat, or did shopping and bought plenty of useful things. You know… It means that you can always find many reasons to praise yourselves. The glass can be half empty or half full. Each time when you praise yourselves, you make the step to self-confidence way.
It also concerns your appearance. The morning begins. You look in a mirror. You know this woman, you see her every day. Is it pleasant to you? Let me guess… You start listing the things that disturb you: too big nose or lines on your forehead… Stop! We have agreed not to critisize ourselves. It means, that your task is to see yourselves differently and accept your own personality.
You don’t look like stars from mass media shows, don’t you? It’s great! You don’t need to be similar to anyone. We all are different and this is our advantage. Try to follow my advice at least one day. You are sure to like it. Try to get used to it.
That is the next step of the training – How to be more confident
