12 Confidence Building Activities You Can Start Today

12 Confidence Building Activities You Can Start Today

Confidence building activities

We all go through ups and downs in life, from being down in the dumps about something to being on top of the world. Sometimes, it can be challenging to be positive, especially about ourselves. Why do we not see our potential and how amazing we are? Confidence-building activities will start changing all that — they’ll help you know who you really are.

Confidence boosting is one of the most critical aspects of self-improvement. If you lack confidence, it becomes even harder to reach that goal, no matter your destination. That’s why confidence-building is such a crucial aspect of self-improvement.

12 Confidence Building Activities

Let’s look at 12 ways to build your confidence with these confidence-building activities.

  1. Speak positively to yourself

Speaking positively to yourself is almost as important as eating your vegetables. When you are conscientious of how you speak to yourself, this will ultimately affect your life’s journey. When you encourage yourself, you will take risks and try new things.

By positive self-talk, I don’t just mean the words you use, but also the tone and emotions behind them. Can you speak to yourself with compassion and kindness? Positive self-talk is one of the best ways to build your confidence.

  1. Celebrate your wins – big or small

When was the last time you celebrated your wins? As in, high-fived yourself or said “good job” to yourself? Is that something you ever did? If not, start celebrating your successes, big or small.

Listen, no matter where you are right now, you worked hard to get there, and it feels good to know that you’re making progress–even if it is small. It can also be a great motivator moving forward and the best confidence booster.

  1. Question and confront the negative critic in your head

Remember, the more time you put into challenging your negative critic, the better chance you have of winning that argument. By combating these harmful thoughts when they arise well, you can become a happier person with less anxiety and an improved outlook on life.

The most crucial time to listen to your inner critic is taking creative risks. 

  1. Adopt an alter-ego

Try taking a page out of Beyonce’s book to overcome anxiety-inducing social situations. Beyonce’s alter-ego, Sasha Fierce, was who she would show up as whenever getting up on stage.

Do you also suffer from social anxiety? Do you find it intimidating to talk to someone new? If so, adopting an alter-ego may be the best confidence hack for you. Confidence is one of the most attractive traits out there — everyone loves a self-assured person (trust me, I know).

  1. Explore out of your comfort zone

Your comfort zone may have been a great place to visit at one time, but consider exploring beyond it more regularly. It might just surprise you what you find. 

Flex your creative muscles and put yourself in unfamiliar or uncomfortable situations as often as possible. You’ll be surprised by how much you can grow by doing this, even though it’s not always fun. Try to do something new every day.

  1. Dress to impress… yourself!

Dress to impress yourself! If you feel good about how you look, it shows in your actions.

The most important thing is to feel good about what you are wearing, whether a conservative suit or just a nice shirt and pants. After all, if you do not feel good about yourself, how can anyone else?

  1. Adopt positive body language

Learning how to manage your body language can profoundly impact your interactions with other people, whether you’re in a job interview, networking event, sales call, or even a casual conversation. The way that you present yourself to others is a vital part of the impression that you make.

  1. Be healthy in a holistic way

You probably want to be holistically healthy, but it can be really confusing to know what that means, especially with so many conflicting articles about what it means to be healthy. If you don’t know how to begin, start with what you’re eating and things that make you happy. Holistic health is about looking at all aspects of your life and making the best changes for you. 

Be holistically healthy and happy by taking care of your mind, body, heart, and spirit.

  1. Find your right tribe

Finding your right tribe is a critical part of succeeding and building confidence. It’s about building a team that will support you, contribute to you, and pushes the boundaries with you.

Tribes are groups of people who share the same beliefs and values. They create environments that make you feel at home.

  1. Regularly practice gratitude

Practice gratitude. Being grateful for what you have in your life can help you feel more confident in yourself and your abilities. It can also help you avoid thinking negatively or feeling sorry for yourself.

There may be times when you lack confidence, but those thoughts will never change anything. If you feel anxious about a situation, focus on the good things in your life to boost your confidence.

  1. Avoid comparison

Everyone is at different stages of their journey. Some are just beginning, while others are veterans. Some see success quickly, while others face challenges. 

The only person you need to be better than is the person you were yesterday. You can’t possibly be better than everyone else, and even if you could, it wouldn’t matter.

  1. Work on accepting feedback

Accepting feedback can be difficult, especially when it’s not entirely positive. There will always be areas where we are weak, but if you accept constructive criticism and work on your weak areas, you will become an expert in no time.

What’s more important is that you focus on the positive things that others have said about you. Take what they have said, learn from it, and move forward with your life.

Whatever you do, just remember that confidence comes from within!

Don’t compare yourself to others, and don’t rely on other people’s opinions to build your confidence. Instead, focus on your positive qualities and traits to discover the power within you.

Whether we are just beginning a new career, going to school for the first time, taking on our first big project, or starting a new role, confidence is not naturally ours. But we can build it. Confidence-building activities are one of the best ways to achieve that.

So don’t hide inside your house, afraid to venture outside. Take those extra baby steps you need and put yourself out there. You may be surprised by how much more confident you can become!

Are we in compliance with the California Online Privacy Protection Act?
CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law’s reach stretches well beyond California to require any person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting Personally Identifiable Information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals or companies with whom it is being shared.
According to CalOPPA, we agree to the following:

Users can visit our site anonymously.

Our Privacy Policy link includes the word ‘Privacy’ and can easily be found as specified above.

Do we comply with COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, United States’ consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online.

We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old.

What is our Fair Information Practice?

The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. To be in line with Fair Information Practices we will notify you via email within 72 hours, as feasible, should a data breach occur:
We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle which requires that individuals have the right to legally pursue enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.

Do we comply with the CAN SPAM Act?

The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes specific requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.
In compliance with this act, we collect your email address in order to:

Send information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions.

Process orders and to send information and updates pertaining to orders.

Send you additional information related to your product and/or service

Market to our mailing list or continue to send emails to our clients after the original transaction has occurred.

Avoid use of false or misleading subjects or email addresses.

Identify the message as an advertisement in some reasonable way.

Include the physical address of our business or site headquarters.

Monitor third-party email marketing services for compliance, if one is used.

Honor opt-out/unsubscribe requests quickly.

Allow users to unsubscribe by using the link at the bottom of each email.

Data protection laws give you the right to request erasure, to object to processing or to withdraw consent.
