How To Eliminate These Top Confidence Killers

by | Aug 28, 2018 | Self-Improvement | 1 comment

There is no better accessory than a big dose of confidence! Walking into a room with your head held high and confidence running through your bones can completely transform the way you look and the way others view you. However, the trouble is that most of us struggle for an ounce of confidence. With that being said, it is important to be aware of the most common confidence killers so you can tackle them head on and win the battle.

So, let’s get started…

Lack of Preparation

It’s often said if you fail to plan, you plan to fail. It is only natural that you will be feeling a bit self-conscious if you have not prepared for a situation. The solution to this is obvious: prepare more! Perhaps you feel like you do not have the time? This is where better scheduling and organization comes in.

Appearance Issues

I am an absolute believer in the power of body confidence–regardless of what your body looks like. We are all beautiful. But I know it’s not always easy. Sometimes, we just get hung up on our appearance. And when that happens, we have options.

Your confidence level is directly impacted by any appearance issues you are suffering from. If there is one thing holding you back–for example, perhaps you don’t like your teeth, you might look for dentists in your area to help you  treat yourself to a new smile.

However, if your appearance issues run deeper and you feel like you won’t  be happy with the way you look, you may want to consider seeing a therapist to help you get rid of these negative thoughts. You may feel that this seems a little bit drastic, but a therapist can help to unlock where these feelings are stemming from so that you can get rid of them once and for all.

Past Failures

Past failures can often hold us back and prevent us from achieving future greatness. It can be difficult to come back from past disappointments. However, you need to remember that failure is not fatal. We all make mistakes in life. Learning from those mistakes is what matters. Try to see your past disappointments as an opportunity to better yourself going forward.


Last but not least, comparing ourselves to others is one of the biggest confidence killers, and our digital age sometimes encourages those fears. If you spend your time comparing yourself to people on Instagram and Facebook, you know exactly what this means.

Rather than focusing on other people, compare yourself to the person you were a year ago and better yourself based on that reference instead..

As you can see, there are many things that can kill your confidence. If you have noticed any of the confidence killers mentioned above with regard to your own life and how you feel about yourself, you will know exactly where to start when it comes to tackling your confidence issues and winning the battle you’re fighting  inside.
