Most people don't like to boast about themselves.
But if you are not going to give yourself a pat on the back who will?
Not many people are going to praise you.
You want other people to do it for you.
You are waiting for external validation.
“You have to expect things of yourself before you can do them.” Michael Jordan
You are waiting for the outside world to tell you about your greatness.
Unconsciously you are training yourself to not feel good until you get some praise from the outside world.
You wait until someone says “That a boy”.
Until someone says “good job”.
Until someone says you look in good shape.
So you build this “humble” attitude.
People like this don't believe in their own abilities.
They don't believe because they don't hear enough praise from external sources.
The reality is this:
The outside world is not just going to tell you are great first.
This is your responsibility.
So what happens to the humble people with their humble attitude?
Well, they become proud of being humble.
So they are waiting to get a reward for their humbleness but that also never comes.
If you are successful and humble in a natural way then it's OK, but those naturally humble people don't expect a reward.
The only way for you to become successful is by starting to trust yourself.
Start praising yourself and start celebrating yourself.
Many people celebrate sports teams or sports stars but they don't even know one of those people personally.
They love these people they celebrate them often.
But they never celebrate their own progress and accomplishments.
When was the last time you went crazy for something happening in your life?
Jump up now and celebrate it.
Look in the mirror and tell yourself how great you are.
How To Improve Self Confidence

- You need confidence in your ability to improve.

You have to show up mentally.
You can show up by conditioning yourself to believe in yourself.
You have to convince yourself first before the world will believe you.
