Confidence is the belief that you can accomplish your goals is a skill that you can learn. The key is repetition, repetition, persistence, and more persistence … Your ability to commit is the key. Negative self- talk brings ALL who use it down. Get away from the people that put you down. Your thoughts influence your actions. “Reaffirm that you are the captain of your ship and the master of your faith. “ (Dr. Ivan Joseph)
Write a letter to yourself about the things you are proud of that you have accomplished however large or small and read it over and over for weeks or months each day 3 times a day. This positive action will help you get through the tough times.
Focus on the positive in yourself rather than the negatives.
Find what you and others do right, what is good, praise the positive behaviors you want to reinforce. Catch yourself and others,(for example, your children) when they are doing something positive and reinforce that.
This is what leads to self -confidence and Hypnotherapy is one of the most effective ways to reinforce the positive and let go of the negatives.
Here is a great Ted Talk about developing the skill of self-confidence,
