How to be more confident

By: Doldo Heusinkveld

If you truly want to learn how to be more confident, there are several things you have to do to change your self-image first. You have to do these few things before you can even think about learning how to be more confident. If you can successfully master these elements of the confidence building foundation, you will be well on your way to a very confident you.


If you do not have goals, then what are you doing here on this planet? How can you know what your purpose in life is without goals to achieve? Goals gives you a destination for your future. Get some achievable goals and whole-heartedly go after them please. If you don't, you're doomed.

That takes me to my next point regarding goals.

Once you get yourself some goals, please. and I repeat please develop a map to reach them. What's nice about a road map is no matter where you stop along the way, you know exactly how to get back on track towards your destination. A goal is nothing more than a pipe-dream without a plan to achieve it. You wouldn't drive from California to New York without some sort of map, or GPS. If you're like most of us, you'd fail miserably if you tried. But if you're better than the rest of us, have at it! Let me know how that all works out for ya!

Moral Compass

Morals are important, but they are only important if you have them. Having morals tells the world that you stand for something. It doesn't have to be anything religious or political, but can be. The main thing is to stop doing things that you are ashamed of and keep doing things you are proud. If you have nothing to be proud of then find something. Find something meaningful and commit to it. Whether it's donating to your favorite charity, handing out lollipops to children at parks (Be careful with that one), or giving up negative habits. The point is just do something meaningful and enjoy doing it. It does wonders for your self-image. Trust me!

Speaking of Self-image.

Be yourself! You will never, and I mean never learn how to be more confident if you cannot be comfortable being just who you are. Building confidence is not learning how to be someone you're not. It's about learning to be a better version of yourself. Being yourself is the secret weapon in learning how to be more confident. It's all about refining you, not altering you. Got it? Good!

Start with these few elements and you will have a solid foundation to build confidence on. I know what it's like to have a low self-image, so I understand. You are not alone. I had to learn these steps and many more to become more confident. But, now I'm here, and you will be too.
