How To Make Your Confidence Soar

Random question without notice: Have you ever had a negative experience in relation to your ‘learning’ that has damaged your confidence? In other words, has anyone ever said something to you like ‘no, you’re wrong’ (even though you knew you were right), ‘you’re an idiot’, ‘you’re stupid’, ‘you’ll never amount to anything’, or ‘you’re never going to achieve anything in your life’? Has anything like this ever happened?

The reason this question is very important is because attacks like this on young people have been shown to have a profoundly negative and long-lasting impact that in some cases can even last for the person’s entire life! Whilst some of us may think ‘come on, they were probably just teasing!’ or ‘why would you take it so seriously?’ comments like this can shatter self-belief and can significantly impact the way a person views themselves – particularly when delivered at a young age. The major problem with this is that a person’s self-confidence is directly related to the attitude they apply to their education (and their ‘learning’ in general). So when a negative comment is directed to a young person about their ability to learn and understand things, it can still be affecting the attitude they have about their schooling in high school, college and their adult life.

What Do You Say?

If you have a low sense of self-esteem you will also have poor feelings about your abilities and your worth. Unfortunately, low self-esteem also results in low achievement level at school. This is because low self-esteem directly impacts your confidence, your attitude, your resilience and your enthusiasm for learning. But we don’t want to be negative about it! We want to provide you with some solutions don’t we! So, what can you do about it?

Solution Time!

Here are some ideas on things you can do to make your ego soar. Soar like an eagle. Did you ever know that you’re my hero? You are the wind beneath my wings. OK sorry it’s getting weird. Let’s get into it.

1. Remember to pump up your own tires and just be positive – about every single thing! What’s the point in being negative anyway – even if it’s justified? Try being positive about every single thing for one whole week. That’s right – a week. You can do it. Try it. See what happens. It’s much better to give yourself and others compliments than to constantly put yourself and others down. Just try it. You’ll see.

2. Think of all the things you are good at and all the success you have created. If you’re not sure ask your parents or your friends. Write these things down and keep adding to the list as you think of anything. Read the list every morning when you wake up. Do this for one week. Don’t be weird about it, just write things that make you feel good and you know are true. Don’t allow yourself to pretend that there is nothing good (some of you will try this old trick!)

3. Attack what you perceive to be your weaknesses. Get hard-core on those weaknesses. Go full on crazy house. Hit them with a left. Hit them with a right. Just prove to yourself every day that “you can do it.” (Remember that every Adam Sandler movie tells us that ‘we can do it’ – thank you Rob Schneider) Never allow others OR your own thoughts to stop you from doing anything ever!

4. Get involved in activities you actually enjoy. You will likely be successful in these activities which will boost your confidence. It doesn’t matter whether you are good at art, marbles, butt-slapping or sport, just do things that make you feel good and things that get you excited (don’t do anything that harms others please!)
