If you wish to build confidence, keep this in mind-


  1. Embrace Self-Acceptance

Self-acceptance forms the foundation of self-confidence. Put in the work to understand that no one’s perfect, and it’s your imperfections, strengths and weaknesses that make you the unique individual that you are! It takes time to accept yourself, warts and all, but you’ll see just how empowering it is. 


  1. Set Realistic Goals

Building confidence can be scary, but break down your goals into smaller tasks and you’ll see that it doesn’t have to be this overwhelming. Don’t forget to celebrate each milestone you reach along the way. Slowly, you’ll build a track record of success that bolsters your confidence.


  1. Keep Stepping Out of Your Comfort Zone

Growth and self-confidence flourish when you challenge yourself. Step out of your comfort zone regularly by trying new activities, taking on different responsibilities, or engaging in situations that make you slightly uncomfortable. Each step you take expands your comfort zone and develops the confidence to handle new experiences.


  1. Practice Confidence-Building Exercises

Incorporate specific exercises to build your confidence, and weave them into your daily lifestyle. You can try the following:

    • Make a list of your achievements, both big and small, and review them regularly to remind yourself of your capabilities. 
    • Keep a gratitude journal and note down what makes you feel grateful every day. It can be something as simple as sunlight, or something big as winning an award!
    • Visualise yourself successfully tackling a challenging situation, and spend some time thinking about how you would handle it

  1. Harness the Power of Affirmations

Positive affirmations can significantly impact your self-confidence. Create affirmations that align with your goals and aspirations, such as “I am capable of achieving my dreams” or “I believe in my abilities.” Repeat these affirmations daily, especially during moments of self-doubt, to rewire your subconscious mind and boost your confidence.


  1. Surround Yourself with Positive People

The company we keep greatly influences our self-confidence. Surround yourself with supportive individuals who believe in your potential, and are also comfortable sharing critical feedback with you. Seek out mentors or friends who inspire and uplift you. Conversely, minimise contact with negative influences or toxic relationships that put you down, and make you doubt your actions and thoughts. 


  1. Celebrate Your Achievements

Take time to acknowledge and celebrate your achievements, no matter how small. Celebrating your successes reinforces your self-confidence by reminding you of your capabilities. Whether it’s completing a project at work, learning a new skill, breaking a PR at your gym or conquering a personal challenge, give yourself credit for your efforts and accomplishments.


  1. Embrace Continuous Learning and Growth

Building self-confidence is an ongoing journey of learning and growth. Invest in your personal development by reading books, attending workshops, or exploring new hobbies. By expanding your knowledge and skills, you’ll gain expertise and confidence in various areas of your life.



Boosting self-confidence is a transformative process that requires self-reflection, practice, and persistence. By integrating these eight essential tips, along with confidence exercises and affirmations, you can build and strengthen your self-confidence. Remember, self-confidence is not about being perfect; it’s about embracing your strengths, accepting your weaknesses, and recognizing your worth. And it’s never too late to start doing the work on yourself!
