Believe in Yourself and Boost Your Self-Confidence

Written By | Personal Success | February 22nd, 2011 | 27 Comments »

Just think: What difference would it make in your life if you had an absolutely unshakable confidence in your ability to achieve anything you really put your mind to?
What would you want and wish and hope for? What would you dare to dream if you believed in yourself with such deep conviction that you had no fears of failure whatsoever?

Most people start off with little or low self-confidence, but as a result of their own efforts, they become bold and brave and outgoing. And we’ve discovered that if you do the same things that other self-confident men and women do, you, too, will experience the same feelings and get the same results.

The key is to be true to yourself, to be true to the very best that is in you, and to live your life consistent with your highest values and aspirations.

Watch my video about self-confidence and self acceptance below!

Take some time to think about who you are and what you believe in and what is important to you. Decide that you will never compromise your integrity by trying to be or say or feel something that is not true for you. Have the courage to accept yourself as you really are—not as you might be, or as someone else thinks you should be—and know that, taking everything into consideration, you are a pretty good person.

After all, we all have our own talents, skills and abilities that make us extraordinary. No one, including yourself, has any idea of your capabilities or of what you might ultimately do or become. Perhaps the hardest thing to do in life is to accept how extraordinary you really can be, believe in yourself, and then to incorporate this awareness into your attitude and personality.

    Many people lose their self confidence just because others put them down. Therefore in order to build real self confidence You really need to change your beliefs. you need to ignore others opinion and You have to focus on your journey.

    The first person should believe that you can do anything you can is yourself, because no matter how other people will appreciate you but you don’t believed then you will hardly to get that self confidence that you need.

    Most of all success are built on confidence which we have before we start anything. But sometimes we are preoccupied with not so important little things who make us annoyed, and make us to forget the most important part! Thank you for reminded me!

    When I think that will turn out nothing always I speak to myself: “There is no nothing possible for the person with intelligence”. At once it becomes easier also all it turns out.

    Thanks for writing this post: it is value-added, as usual.

    To thine own self be true, and it shall be, as night follows the day, that happiness will be a shadow that never leaves you, to paraphrase the late, great William Shakespeare.

    However, in order to stay tuned to the True North, it is important equally to surround yourself with the right kind of people.

    People who are upbeat, supportive and encourage you to pursue your goals or objectives. People who believe in the power of your dreams and the beauty of your imagination. People who are never-say-die and are there for you, strong as a rock when the chips are down.

    Conversely, it is equally important to escape from the lost and lonely souls who are fault finders, naysayers, criticizers and who can only see dark clouds on the horizon. Those are the sorts of people to watch out for.

  19. Lew Sauder says on March 1, 2011 at 8:18 am:

    It took me years to realize this truth. I often took criticism to heart, but realized after several years that if I had followed my instints, I would have been more successful. As I’ve grown older, I became more successful by following my instincts and not listening to nay-sayers. I’ve since published my own book and am on my way to brand myself the way I see fit, not to fit into others’ expectations. Thanks for this advice. It never hurts to have reinforcement.

    Hey Brian,

    thanks for providing so much value in this short video and summary. It is really worth the effort to study every
    single point.

    I couldn´t agree more, and personally the best way to go about getting rid of stress is by talking to a trusted person. It´s also better to just have a few close people than to be “friend” with everyone.

    I enjoyed your speech when you have been in Vienna (Vemma convention).

    Best wishes,


  21. Keith S. Aul says on February 23, 2011 at 11:29 am:

    Self-confidence is built upon not only visualizing your ability to succeed but mostly through do the activities that show you can do it. I highly recommend Brian’s program “Science of Self-Confidence”

  22. Tom Evans says on February 23, 2011 at 1:16 am:

    You are so right … wise words. Inner belief powers everything. It actually starts at a lower level in our psyche with inner-trust which then powers inner-tuition leading to inner belief. Trusting your gut pays such dividends.

    Awesomeness :) Love this so much, A good energy booster .


  24. Dipti Joshi says on February 22, 2011 at 9:36 pm:

    You are simply great in your ability to say exactly the right thing… the way u are able to make things easily understandable and help us focus on the MAIN thing is extraordinary…

  25. Ryan Biddulph says on February 22, 2011 at 6:10 pm:

    Hi Brian,

    You share excellent advice here.

    The secret of success? Be true to you and you will believe more in yourself. Taking the time to think about who you really are allows your lower self to begin recognizing the higher side of your nature, and once this realization is made you begin to feel absolutely unlimited. Which of course you are :)


  26. Neal says on February 22, 2011 at 5:29 pm:

    I have a mentor, supportive parents, and friends who have all helped me believe in myself. They believed in me and supported me. I think a strong support system (supportive parents, friends, co-workers, ect) is necessary to help build self-confidence.
