1. Join Improvisation classes
In these classes, you will learn how to think on your feet and learn how to improvise on the spot. You will be required to step out of your comfort zone and to participate in new situations. This will help to build up your confidence.
2. Accept that you cannot please everyone and that is okay
Everyone has their own perception, be it of a person or a situation, so it is highly likely that not everyone will like you. Instead of stressing about this, invest time in loving yourself and loving those who do appreciate you. The less you care about people’s perception of you, the higher your self-esteem will be.
3. Know your worth
As the L’Oréal adverts say: ‘You’re worth it’. Do not listen to the negative thoughts that tell you otherwise. Always have a positive view on both the world and yourself. Self-analysis is important, but this must be of a positive nature. The great leaders of today are where they are because they realised their worth and did not allow anyone to take that away from them.
4. Realise that life is too short
Life is too short and moments are far too precious, so spending your life worrying about what others think of you is ultimately a waste of time. Instead, focus on becoming a better you; channel your energy into achieving your goals and dreams. Do not stress about the small things – use your time by focusing on the bigger picture.
