Here are 7 effective ways to grow your confidence and mindset so you can level up your life and accomplish goals that you’ve never been able to reach or thought imaginable…yet!

1. Set realistic and specific goals: Clearly define what you want to achieve and break it down into smaller, manageable steps. This will give you a sense of direction and purpose. This will also give you a boost in your confidence as you make progress toward attaining your goal.

2. Celebrate small victories: Acknowledge and celebrate your accomplishments along the way, no matter how small they may seem. Each achievement is a step forward toward reaching your ultimate goal. It’s important to recognize your progress and celebrate it too! Small wins lead to success. Doing this will actually reinforce your confidence and motivation to keep moving forward… even on those tough, and not-so-encouraging days.

3. Prioritize self-care: As a busy working parent, it’s crucial to carve out time for self-care. Truthfully, it’s one of the most important things you can do to help yourself build the confidence you need to take on your new endeavor or goal. Doing simple things to take care of your physical and mental well-being by getting enough rest, eating nutritious meals, and engaging in activities that bring you joy and relaxation.

However, a tired mind leads to stagnation, critical or overthinking, negative thoughts and feelings, confusion, a little to no confidence at all. Sometimes, even when you think you need to be “busy” working on your goals, the most productive thing you can do is relax. Even the batteries in the tv remote have to be “recharged” after a while, or they just don’t do the intended job it was meant to do. The same goes for you too. When you prioritize self-care, you’ll have more energy and confidence to pursue your goals.

4. Practice self-compassion: Be kind to yourself and embrace self-compassion. Speak words of positivity to yourself. Sometimes, you are your worst critic and enemy. You say you want to accomplish this goal, but then if you make a mistake or things don’t do the way you envisioned, you start saying the most hurtful things… to yourself.

You think or say, that was stupid, why can’t I just get this right, or should just quit, who am I fooling this was a mistake and I will never figure this out. If you have a friend, family member, or someone close to you. If they told you they were working on this “thing” and they were negatively talking about themselves and their inability to do it, you wouldn’t say any of those things to them. You would fill them up with positivity and encouragement. You have to do the same for yourself! Speak words of affirmation such as:

Positive influences can uplift your confidence and provide valuable insights.

A very critical skill that you will have to learn as you grow in mindset and goals is to “get friendly” with discomfort. It’s vital to your goals and success that you learn to get comfortable with being uncomfortable. Learning new things and attaining new things, comes with a pruning process.

Pruning is cutting away the old and adding in the new. When you do this, it feels very uncomfortable, but it leads you to the path of victory! Comfort does not you very far, it feels good… but there’s no growth in that zone. With growth comes pruning and pruning brings discomfort. If you stick it out through the pruning process, you will unlock a life far beyond your imagination and you will grow a mindset to win… and be fruitful.

By embracing new experiences and taking calculated jumps in the right direction, you’ll expand your skills, knowledge, and confidence. Start with small steps, gradually pushing your boundaries, and you’ll gain the confidence to pursue bigger goals.

7. Reflect on your strengths: Recognize and appreciate your strengths and talents. Reflect on past accomplishments and instances where you’ve overcome hard things. Remind yourself of your capabilities then. You have the same capability now. This will boost your self-confidence and help you tackle new challenges with a positive mindset.
Remember, building confidence and pursuing your goals is a journey that requires consistency and perseverance. Be patient with yourself, stay committed, and celebrate every milestone along the way.
