2 Key Tips To Boosting Your Inner Confidence

entrepreneur Aug 02, 2021

I've been in the psychotherapy and coaching world for a few years now, and the biggest thing I've learnt - both for me and for my clients - is that inner confidence and knowing your self worth is the key to it all.

There are all kinds of strategies for improving your life and feeling better about yourself, but they're all redundant if the foundation isn't there. 

That foundation is the real you, the you that you know deep down you are. The trick is that it takes confidence to find that and to bring out who you are – here are my two key tips to find real inner confidence.

1. Get To Know Your Values

Do you know those times when you’ve felt really alive, amazing or buzzing? Those are the times when one or more of your values are being honoured, and you can get more of that by living according to them.

Your values are all yours, and no matter what happens, no one can ever take them away. So take some time to think about them. Write them down. Then think about them some more. 

When you get to know your values, you can start to make choices and align your life around them. 

It’s so simple and it feels amazing because all that really means is that you’re allowing who you are to live in the real world.

 2. Exercise the Muscle

Confidence is a muscle, and like any muscle, you need to exercise it so that it doesn’t shrink and waste away. 

How do you develop your biceps or firm up your glutes? By doing exercises that are designed to work that muscle over a period of time until you see the results you were looking for. It’s just the same with confidence. 

And to work your confidence muscle you need to be prepared to take risks – big or small. 

You need to be willing to stretch yourself in an unfamiliar direction, to try something new or try something in a slightly different way. 

You need to open yourself up to the possibilities around you and push yourself to increase what you know, what you do and who you are. 

The more open you are to risk, opportunity and possibility the more confident you need to be, and so the more confidence you’ll develop. 

That’s your confidence muscle – the question is, what are you going to do to exercise it?"
