low confidence

by elizabeth

For as long as I have remembered I have always had trouble with low confidence and it definitely shows in my job where I work as a chef. It hold me back.

This is something I want to fix for me because everyone tells me I have low confidence. How can I get my confidence back? Would a course work?

Low self confidence
by: Kay

Thank you for contacting Positive Personal Growth. When you believe something about yourself and keep reconfirming this belief by telling yourself the same thing over and over again, this is the way you become. You also have people telling you the same thing, and you take on board what they say, and this, again, re-enforces your lack of self confidence.

Your own thoughts are limiting you. Can you start by no longer thinking that you have low confidence, but repeat to your self that you are a very capable, confident person. Say this as often as you can.

You have to believe in yourself, and you can programme your sub conscious to believe whatever you want by constantly repeating the same information.

You have successfully done this by telling yourself you have low confidence, and so you should be able, if you are determined, to change this debilitating thought into becoming a confident person.

Other people should start to see a difference in you once you persevere with your positive self talk. Until they do, whenever they mention your low confidence, tell them you are confident and are working on yourself to be even more confident in the future. Whatever you do don't accept what they tell you, turn their thought around inside your mind and say you feel very confident.

Once you believe in yourself you will blossom!

Good luck,
