How to enlarge your self-confidence

  • First of all, you have to accept your good qualities AND your bad ones. This is helpful when
    you make mistakes or if someone is criticizing you.
  • Everyone has that 'little voice' in their head that is very criticizing, who is telling you for example you can't do something. It is that negative voice that you have to turn in something positive. For example; I am happy with every little step I make.
  • Let go of your perfectionism. This is for me one of the hardest. But the thing is that you're not a failure when you make mistakes. You learn from your mistakes. And EVERYONE makes them, that is what makes us human.
  • You have to separate your feelings from your thoughts. You are not always what you feel. Thoughts aren't facts, they're thoughts.
  • Try to live in the moment. I already talked about this in a previous blogpost. This is so important. If you are so stuck in the past or thinking too much about the future, you won't get anywhere and you won't be able to reach your goals.
  • Write down the positive things of every day. Things you are happy with, something you achieved that day. You will look back at your notebook and see how many things you actually can do 'right', things you are genuinely happy and proud of.
  • And last bus definitely not least, stop comparing yourself with other people. The internet is full of the perfect lives or the perfect people, but is it that perfect? Do you really know who someone is behind that perfect picture? Can you see their true life? You have only you, and you will have to live with yourself. It's so important to have a good relationship with yourself, and it's definitely worth it to work on this.  


  1. Sometimes we can be controlled by our emotions, rather than thinking about things clearer and taking time to make decisions. Great post.

  2. I was someone with really low self-esteem, and it took me a while to build my confidence. It's a working progress, but I'm getting there. Being grateful for every day, working out and finding what I love to do really helped me.

    1. I'm happy to read this. It's indeed a working progress, but you will get there!

  3. very nice information guys. thanks a lot.
