How To Embrace Who You Are
What if you could lead a life filled with joy, love, and confidence? What if you could embrace yourself for all that you are with complete and total unconditional love and acceptance?
You can! Here are five ways that you can begin cultivating confidence.
Go on a journey of self-discovery
“ To love oneself is the beginning of a life-long romance.” – Oscar Wilde (Irish Poet, Novelist, Dramatist and Critic, 1854-1900)
When you first meet someone, you have to spend time with them to find out who they are. The same process applies in the journey of self-discovery. Only here, the person you’re spending time with is you! The more you get to know yourself, the more confident you’ll feel.
To kickstart the process, engage in a number of different activities: spend time in nature, meditate, write in your journal, spend time connect with your inner self.
Create a roadmap for healthy habits
Write down small daily goals to incorporate healthy habits into your life. This is a great way to create growth and positive change.
Willpower alone isn’t enough. Start by asking yourself why you want to make a change - and then hold yourself accountable by making your new healthy habits non-negotiable!
On days that feel challenging, ask a mentor or a close friend to help you stay on track. Give them a copy of your roadmap so they’re on the same page.
Don’t be too hard on yourself
You forgive others easily. Yourself? Not so much. Embrace who you are and release self-judgment. You can be both a masterpiece and a work in progress at the same time.
Adopt positive mantras
Have you ever heard the expression “where focus goes, energy flows”? Try it! This doesn't mean you should discredit negative emotions. It means you should let yourself feel the emotion with intent and then move on.
Unable to escape a cycle of negative thinking? Create some positive affirmations or 'mantras.' For example, if you have a challenging presentation coming up at work, repeat to yourself: “I can do it; I will do it.”
True self-expression takes place when you let go of all fears of being judged.
Express yourself in your clothing, a hobby you enjoy, the music you listen to, and the films you watch. The possibilities are endless - the important thing here is to find a form of expression that lets you to celebrate who you are.
A few extra tips for being convincing on the phone
- Make sure you take the call in an area with good network coverage to avoid any technical errors during a conversation.
- Practice your pronunciation before a call with a fun alliteration phrase like “She sells seashells by the seashore”.
- If you intend on calling someone from your cell phone, make sure you are topped up on minutes so that your credit doesn't cut out mid-call.
- Avoid eating or drinking while on the phone. Yes, that includes chewing gum too ;)
- Avoid leaving long winded voice messages. Instead, plan your message in advance. Keep it brief and to the point.
