8 Tips to Skyrocket Your Self-Confidence That Will Surprise You

Self-Confidence Tip 1: Think small, tiny, MICRO new activity

What would it take for you to skyrocket your confidence?

Go ahead, give it some thought. I’ll wait.

Does it involve a significant shift in your reality? Or does it require a massive investment in terms of time, money, effort, and willpower?

I’m guessing you answered yes to either one or both of the above questions.

Luckily for you, you are ten massively, I’m talking ten elephants balancing on top of each other, overestimating the resources required to change your level of self-confidence.

The first step to build Confidence and Self Esteem

The first step is to think of what would make you feel more inner strength, poise, unshakable certainty in your self-worth.

Does it have more knowledge? Feeling fitter, stronger, more flexible? Is it having a group of people who adore you?

Is it looking more stylish? Attaining a degree? Perhaps it is feeling serene and resilient to stress, no matter what life throws at you. It could be becoming skilled in something you love, like guitar, cooking, writing, or sculpting ice.

I guessed it didn’t I? It’s the ice sculpting.

Once you figure out what could give you an inner steel rod of certainty in yourself, it’s time to think of a small daily goal that will get you moving towards your goal.

I’m talking a tiny, even macro daily effort.

Ten minutes is the outer limit of what you are even allowed.

What will your effort look like daily? Perhaps this is 5 minutes of meditation 5 minutes of push-ups and squats 5 minutes of yoga 5 minutes of writing 5 minutes of studying

Now, I can already hear you saying that it isn’t possible to leave your ice block standing out in your living room so you can do a few minutes of sculpting each day. Then block out an hour once a week to ice sculpt and use your daily 5 minutes to watch tutorials, brainstorm, or sketch your next sculpture.

Self-Confidence Tip 2: Build Self Trust & Integrity

The second step is to look at your daily life and find something that you do every day at the same time. Use this initial habit to trigger your new micro activity.

Examples include: right after brushing your teeth, directly after you jump out of bed in the morning, right after pouring yourself your first cup of coffee, after finishing cleaning the kitchen, the minute you get home from work, or [insert your brilliance here.]

Set a timer for 2-5 minutes and do your new micro activity EVERY SINGLE DAY for 40 DAYS.

After 40 days, take time to reflect on your progress, how you are feeling, and what you would like to alter or change completely.

Are you one of those super enthusiastic, ‘I want to get results fast, and I’m willing to work hard’ kind of person?

Slow your roll down the motivation hill. We want you to get RESULTS, so you are allowed only 10 minutes for the first 40-Days.

After that, well, you do you. You can keep everything the same, increase the task’s difficulty in the same time frame, or set a new goal of 20 minutes a day.

Just be sure to do your new activity every day, without fail, even if that means reverting some days to only doing 2 minutes. Every 40 days take time to reflect on your progress, how you are feeling, and what you would like to alter or change completely.

Why will a new micro activity work?

It requires minimal willpower.

Minimal willpower means that you will DO the activity. Imagine the previous system is flashing in neon colors or sailing on a huge banner being pulled by a low-flying plane overhead because I can’t emphasize this point enough.

Minimal willpower means that you will DO the activity.

Are you still incredulous or unmotivated to start?

Are you wondering why will doing a new activity for a few minutes a day will change how you feel as you walk around in the world?

I get it. I mean, how can a few minutes change your sense of self-worth?

A micro activity builds up over time to quickly achieve massive results. Sure, 5 minutes doesn’t sound like much. But in a week it’s 35 minutes. In a month it is 2 hours and 20 minutes- In a year that is over 30 hours.

Even MORE critically, when you do something every day, it starts to become part of your identity. First, you start thinking of yourself as the ‘sort of person’ who exercises daily, plays the guitar, writes, meditates. All of a sudden, you start saying, I am a yogi, a cook, an ice sculpting genius.
