The Amazing Self-Confidence Habit

 

How often has a lack of self-confidence, or a feeling of inadequacy, stopped us from doing something awesome?

I would guess that for lots of us, this feeling of inadequacy stopped us from:

  • Putting ourselves into uncomfortable social situations were we might make new friends or start dating
  • Starting a new business, creating a book or art, putting our ideas out there into the world

 

  • Sticking to a new exercise, diet or meditation habit because we messed up (confirmation that we can’t do it, right?)
  • Learning something new and amazing, like a new skill, because we might embarrass ourselves
  • Being confident as we socialize with others (perhaps in the rare cases we do socialize) — a lack of confidence which might make them less interested in us

 

I’ve experienced all of this myself, and I know many people who know this lack of self-confidence and feeling of inadequacy very well.

It can plague all areas of our lives. And learning to feel worthy, learning a confidence in ourselves … it can change everything.

 

I believe that self-confidence is a mental habit that we can develop. And I believe that its opposite, the feeling of inadequacy, is a set of mental habits that we’ve developed since we were young — habits that we can train out of ourselves, with diligence (and forgiveness if we mess up).
