If you suffer from a lack of self-confidence and want to solve your problems, read this article. I'll show you top three problems of people with lack of self-confidence and three solutions to these problems.
1. You feel that you are inferior to other people
People with low self-esteem think that other people are better than them. It's not true – we're all equal, because we all can change ourselves for better. You have to discover your own potential – it will help you overcome your belief that you are inferior to others.
Solution: write down all your strong points, talents and things that make you unique. Memorize them. Whenever you feel inferior to someone, remind yourself of these things. You can even make it a daily practice – review your strengths every morning. You have to know your value to have a high self-esteem.
2. You consider yourself an introvert
Do not get me wrong now – it's possible that you enjoy being alone and do not like to spend a lot of time with other people. There's nothing wrong with it. However, many people mistake introversion with shyness and lack of self-confidence. It's easy to say "I'm not going to meet new people, I'm an introvert". The hard truth is that it holds you back. You'll never become confident if you keep acting as a shy person.
Solution: stop thinking in categories of introvert / extrovert. Even if you have some stereotypical traits of an introvert, it does not mean that you can not learn to become confident. Introversion does not mean shyness. Next time there's an opportunity to meet with new people, take it. No backing out!
3. You want to change, but do not know how to start
Many shy people do not want to be shy, yet they do not know how to get rid of their problem. For some people it's a great excuse – "I can not overcome my shyness, because I do not know how to do it." Do not be one of these people. I'll show you a solution – all you have to do is take action.
Solution: three steps:
1. Write down all things that make you feel insecure.
2. Eliminate your insecurities step by step by expanding your comfort zone (doing these things as often as possible to get used to them).
3. Once you get rid of your shyness, work on your self-confidence by accepting challenges in your life – test yourself often!
These three problems are among the most common problems of shy people. If you solve them, you'll greatly improve your confidence. Consequently, you should deal with your lack of self-confidence and finally become a confident person.
