How To Boost Confidence In Just 3 Easy Steps


(MENAFN- GetNews)

Megan Bliss, FNP-C, founder of Live Bliss Health has a 3 step method to improving confidence. Many women walk into a room and worry about what anyone is thinking. Megan has tips to sky-rocket confidence.

Step 1: Focus on the positives and be meticulous about that!

The first step to do is write down a list of necessary HABITS that will propel women forward.

• Exercise: Exercise habits are not easy but they are effective – when starting out, it is common to focus on how hated it is! Change that to focusing on increasing weights – it HELPS!

• Productivity: Working women have more self-confidence. Stay-at-home-moms tend to experience the confidence dwindle. It is important to instead find something to throw productive energy into on a daily basis – whether it is a garden, PTA, or another home project.

• Relationships: Many times, we tend to spiral into all the things going WRONG in romantic relationships, friendships, family, INSTEAD – focus on what is going right in those areas!

Step 2: Fake It Until You Make It

This has two sides to it – there is a GREAT side and a NOT so great side!

Megan shares the top 2 mistakes and how to avoid them:

• Women should not pretend problems don't exist – that can have a rebound effect on self-esteem and make it plummet even further.

• Avoid generalizations – ie, When a good attempt has been given and negative feedback is received, it can feel like all the work for is for nothing – REALITY CHECK – writing these thoughts down can really bring perspective into how ridiculous that way of thinking is!

Step 3: Positive Affirmations Don't Work- Here Is What Does

Common thinking is to have 10 phrases written out and repeated on a daily basis. Why is this not working? Because the inner narrative would chime in and whisper –“You're kidding yourself.” or“LIAR!”

Megan instructs clients to rewrite the inner narrative and stories. Instead-

• Pick 3 affirmations in those areas above

• Set a reminder in the calendar to review affirmations monthly to see if they still pertain or if progress has been made on them.

• Change the tone from“I am” to“I want” and see if that helps feel more authentic.

• Stop shooting for perfectionism and instead revert back to step 1

Here's the deal, scriptures say,“Faith without works is dead.” OR“Fail to plan, you plan to fail!” Confidence doesn't happen overnight and is definitely a trait that can be developed over time and intentional action.

What is the most important step? There's just one thing left: take action. Check out more at
