The best way to build self confidence is:
- Identifying a value proposition for yourself; a value that makes you special; that’s a source of efficacy and differentiation from others.
- Earning self praise
- Retaining personal standards; subjecting or subordinating self to others’ standards is a source of vulnerability. We all work with or for others. Qualify and perhaps quantify that vulnerability.
- Ensuring those standards are objective or reasonable so you can defend them; or regard failure as a point of growth or personal development.
- Be future focused; not bad but always becoming better or stronger; more resilient.
