Building and Sustaining Self Confidence

One challenge that many people face in becoming great is their own self-doubt.  How can you overcome your own doubts and thoughts of discouragement?  I would like to suggest some things I have found useful in overcoming self-doubt.

  1. Know your strengths and weaknesses
  2. Continuously Work to strengthen your weaknesses
  3. Don’t be afraid to try
  4. Know that after many tries with failure, you will eventually find success.
  5. Do your very best and know that God will take care of the rest.
  6. Believe in yourself
  7. Write your goals and work to obtain them.

Here is a video that shows someone who has overcome their own self-doubt.

This video has been around for a while, but Paul Potts is a great example of overcoming self-doubt and taking a chance.  As most of us, he had challenges with self-confidence.  By realizing his strengths, he was able to overcome his doubt.  He took a chance by auditioning for Britian’s Got Talent and now he is very successful and is able to do what he is best at.
