How to Improve Self-Confidence

Many women wished they had been blessed with more self-confidence so that they can achieve their goal. Thinking that if they had received the gift they too would be where others are.

Here’s the good news, ladies… self-confidence is a learned skill. Meaning, you can learn how to improve self-confidence. With the 4 steps that we will review today, you’ll be able to practice and foster an environment that will lead you to improve and boost self-confidence.

One thing to understand first is that self-confidence and self-esteem aren’t the same. Self-esteem is an evaluation of one’s own worth, whereas, self-confidence is more specifically trust in one’s ability to achieve some goals.

What we will focus on today is self-confidence, however, know that in the areas of self-care and eating behavior, self-confidence is intertwined with self-worth especially when it comes to body image.

In this episode I discuss 

  • The difference between self-confidence and self-esteem and why they don’t always go hand-in-hand
  • The transformative concept we teach in the Going Beyond the Food Academy to boost self-confidence
  • How to improve self-confidence in 4 steps
    1. Speak well to yourself.
    2. Visualize yourself as a confident person.
    3. Give yourself permission to not be perfect.
    4. Practice being kind to yourself: self-compassion

Last episode, I answered a listener question on the topic of ‘people-pleasing’. Are you are a people-pleaser? If you want to learn more about this behavior – the definition, different behaviors associated with people-pleasing, its origin and why it’s critical to healing it and the side-effects of this behavior, this episode is for you. Ultimately, I talked about the solutions on how to stop being a people-pleaser. 

If this is you, and you want to stop focusing on others and making you a priority without feeling guilty. You gotta listen to this episode. Click here.
