Many people think they have lack of confidence in certain areas of life when in reality one needs to claim self-confidence.
I’m going to discuss ways to reclaim self-confidence because it is always in you, but you just have it covered up.
The way you feel about yourself especially when you feel a lack of confidence impacts how and why you do whatever in life.
If you feel great about who you are, then what you do will be a reflection of your innermost thoughts. Your feelings and sensations will portray a picture of you.
Contrary to common belief, self-confidence is not something anybody or any accomplishment can give you.
It’s not complicated, all you have to do is claim it, go within and uncover all that conflicting nonsense in your way.
Keep in mind the Course in Miracles states: “Complexity is not of God. How could it be, when all He knows is one? Nothing conflicts with oneness.”
Even if individuals like you, or you, receive awards, does not suggest that you will take care of yourself.
When we feel we have a lack of confidence the light within us is covered up by fear and doubt and more.
Self-love and confidence does not alter due to the fact that the scenery or circumstances are different.
How to have confidence something or somebody is to relate to highly or positively.
High self-confidence is fairly stable even when the projection looks foreboding.
Your self-esteem resembles a star in the evening that shines brightest when it is the darkest.
It is your inner light that burns brightly and easily no matter what is happening around you. But on the other hand when that luminous star is blocked you feel a lack of confidence.
A Zen phrase advises us: “What was your original face before you were born?”
Self-confidence is completely intact when we are born, in truth, and it is fundamental to us. Nevertheless, it often decreases throughout our youth.
We lose a little of it whenever we stop working, make errors, misbehave, feel guilty, and doubt. Likewise when we choose not to forgive, disregard ourselves, and/or do things we regret later.
As an adult, we in some cases feel as if our “self” is in pieces–that we are somehow not total and wonderfully wholesome.
I am willing to bet that when you look back over your life, the first thing that comes to mind are the regrets. And the sad times in your past.
Do you see the pieces of yourself lying along the path of your life? The ones where you didn’t feel good enough. Or, where you were slammed or blamed by somebody else?
It is your place in this world to love and honor yourself. The good news is that you can reclaim that which is yours.
What follows are a double handful of ways to undo lack of confidence and rather exercise self love:
Define life success
One of the most empowering things you can do on your own is to define your criteria for life success. This needs reflecting on what the crucial elements are and the experiences you want to have.
Decide to be happy
Joy is a mindset. The Dalai Lama says that the very purpose of life is to seek happiness.
He believes that if you train the mind to be pleased and happy, you will be. Also, you can train yourself for greater self-confidence.
Set tough objectives
How much you like yourself is often reflected in the level of objectives you will set for yourself.
Typically, people who like themselves and feel important, set greater and more difficult life goals.
Honor your core values
It is simpler to align your life with what is most crucial to you when you live by a clear set of self love and self worth.
A Course in Miracles further states: “All effects of guilt are over. For guilt is no more.”
When you honor your inner core which is guilt free without fear and doubt, (those things you would strive for), you honor your real self.
Enhance your energy to overcome lack of confidence
People with lack of confidence just do not appear to have an accumulation of energy. They often get sick or let life’s set backs keep them down.
But those who improve self-confidence regularly have a great supply of passion and purpose.
Their energy and enthusiasm for life encourages them to look after their body, mind, and spirit.
Keep a favorable attitude
Mindset determines your altitude. The more favorable your thinking, the more positive your sensations.
Of course, this means the more positive the result. There is nothing more creative and powerful than your ideas, so you might also make them favorable and uplifting.
Be enthusiastic and passionate
Enthusiasm grabs you and feels like “fire in the belly.” It is a source of power that enables you to get fired about life and make a distinction.
The more passion and zest you feel, the more alive and brightly lit you are.
Live by vision of a life of purpose
When you understand your life passion and make that your life purpose life has more meaning and direction.
Vision and purpose provide a sense that you matter, and that you have a part to play in this world. Likewise a feeling that you really belong here.

Reward even your tiny successes
Set yourself up for success by breaking little goals into huge goals and then into daily action steps. Also take some time to acknowledge and commemorate the little successes.
This will feed your requirement for acknowledgment and provides the additional push to keep you progressing.
Exercise your power of choice
You make smarter decisions when you care about yourself. You make sure to pick the right mate, profession, and lifestyle that support you.
Self-esteem is an inner state that can be supported and cultivated and can replace lack of confidence when need be.
How to have confidence means the experience of being capable of fulfilling life’s difficulties and deserving happiness.
That meaning highlights two key things: pursuing goals and selecting happiness by your power of choice.
Another definition is the level that you respect and the self love you have as a rewarding human being.
Your self-esteem contributes to your vitality, energy level, persistence, and individual magnetism.
It remains sturdy in stormy weather or windy conditions within you.
Self-confidence is about exactly what is on the inside, a belief in yourself and your capabilities.
Positive esteem focuses on acceptance of self and others. It stays continuous in spite of the storm.
This fosters cooperation and wholeness.
It is common to have high self-esteem in one area of life, like profession, however some lack of confidence in others.
The highest form of self-esteem is when you can accept all of yourself. I mean your strengths, weak points, best/worst parts, and overall, still feel good about who you are.
And, of course feel passionate about your life.
Positive self-confidence comes from within and does not alter because the landscapes or situation changes.
High self-confidence is relatively steady even when the projection looks dark or gloomy.
Self-confidence is perfectly intact when we are born, in truth, it is inherent to us; nevertheless, it typically decreases over the course of our childhood.
Psychological researchers and scientists agree that self-esteem is the experience of being capable of fulfilling life’s difficulties and being worthy of joy.
Your self-confidence contributes to your vitality, energy level, persistence, and individual magnetism.
