How to Cultivate Self Confidence Our Top Five Tips

How to Cultivate Self Confidence Our Top Five Tips

One of my most beloved and respected role models is Diane Von Furstenberg, a legendary fashion designer, businesswoman and an incredibly empowered woman; Diane shares the following advice often.

“The most important relationship in your life is the relationship you have with yourself. Because no matter what happens, you will always be with yourself.” — Diane Von Furstenberg

So What is Self Confidence?

Self-confidence and self-esteem are having a healthy relationship with yourself. Confidence is what will give you resilience in times of disappointment or heartbreak, it is what will provide you with the motivation to strive towards achieving your goals, and it determines who and what you spend your time and effort on.

Self-confidence will help you identify the guy or girl you’re dating (who is a bit of a jerk-burger) is in-fact not worth your time, confidence will help you have the courage to initiate an awkward conversation with your boss. Self-confidence is feeling worthy of having an opinion and comfortable to express it and it’s also the ability to give and accept compliments.

Above all, confidence will make you feel happier and therefore act kinder towards others which is as contagious as COVID…😜

Eating Healthy Food – More Often than Not.

Eating processed foods, sugar, un-balanced amount of treat food and drinking alcohol to excess impacts self-confidence and self-esteem because no matter who you are or what you choose to believe what you put in your body impacts your gut health and in-turn mental health. 

Physical and Mental Fitness

Well, this one is a no-brainer isn’t it – it is long proven that exercise and meditation practices performed every day have profound positive impacts on mental and physical health and wellbeing. 

Even moving your body just 20 mins a day will benefit and only 10 mins a day of meditation will transform your state-of-being from cluster-f*ck to calm.

We have a great article on how to get started with mediation with some free resources, and we LOVE Alo Moves for at-home workouts, and Emmy Wong on Youtube has loads of free 10-20 min workouts we also love.

Learning New Skills

Quite often, goals we desire require skills we don’t yet have, and it feels like it’s too hard or too far out of reach. But the one thing that 100% helps you gain momentum is up-skilling yourself

When you learn something, even a small portion of a subject and you retain that information you feel proud and that in turn re-wires neurotransmitters in your brain that tells your mind ‘hey we can do this, let’s do more’

The more competent you are, the more self-confidence you’ll feel, and you’ll apply for that promotion or create that Youtube channel etc.

So take the first step towards a goal and learn one skill towards achieving it, make a start by simply typing in ‘how to {insert your query}’ into Youtube and you’ll see hundreds of free tutorials to get you started.
