First Tip for Rebuilding Your Self Confidence
1. Ask for help
I used to be superwoman. Let me rephrase that… I used to THINK I was superwoman. I mistakenly thought I could do everything myself (because nobody does it like me) and manage my home, career, business, kids, relationship, taking care of my parents and myself with one hand tied behind my back. Yeah, that didn’t work out so well. Asking for help is KEY to our success. I learned how to ask for help and…wait for it… ACCEPT help! When we ask for help, it’s a sign of strength and courage. It’s a great way to exercise self-love and self-care; which is wildly important.Asking for help is a sign of strength and courage. Click To Tweet
Asking for someone’s help isn’t easy and it takes a lot of courage to reach out and receive help. Here’s the thing – when we ask for and receive help, we allow for others to be of service, to share their gifts and talents with the world.

2. Become a lifelong learner and share what you’ve learned
We learn through teaching others. This is the sweet spot for our personal development. I’m a HUGE reader. I LOVE books:-) Through reading, we come to know and understand so much: emotions, current events, culture, scientific developments, relationships; ourselves. By reading a book, magazine, journal, or newspaper we absorb the world and are better equipped to engage with it. And after we’ve read about something, we may feel motivated to apply and share what we’ve learned. This is a huge trait of successful people: They apply and share what they’ve learned. This helps anchor the learning and helps others in the process.
Through learning and applying new ideas, you’re connecting with others and the world. Shine your light!

3. Take time to appreciate your successes
Aahhhh, gratitude. Appreciation. Thankfulness. We need to take time and truly appreciate ourselves and our accomplishments. Taking time to acknowledge what we are doing well has an interesting way of putting an order in for the Universe to conspire and bring more things to be thankful for.
