Are you looking into ways to help you to gain more confidence?
Have you a lack of self-belief?
Do you think that you are a weak person?
Would you like to be a more carefree person?
If you have answered yes to any of these questions, this blog post may well be worth a read. I am going to write about how people can go about increasing their self-confidence. This advice is what I have used to help myself turn from a former depressive person to a now happy and relaxed man now.
My name is Patrick Ngambi and I have to admit that for some periods of my life, I did not exactly live life to the full or in the correct manner. I was basically like a scared rabbit, I worried about almost all aspects of life and was a very negative person. I needed to change this approach as I was not exactly a happy chap. Eighteen years ago (2003) I went about making this change by reading literature about self-confidence and by trying to learn how other people coped with their problems compared to me.
One of my many weaknesses was that I was very depressed about my financial situation and debt. I was extremely worried and down; not knowing how I could be able to solve my problems.
I have now realized and accepted that it is important for me to be truthful to myself. I should be doing everything to solve my own problems because no one else would do it for me.
I have also decided to stop worrying about things like the future, money, relationships, and work. Stressing about these and other things does not make life easier, in fact, it makes it a lot harder. There is no time in life for this type of fear, I should be spending this time trying to improve and enjoying my life. If something goes wrong which of course it will from time to time, I will deal with it when it happens, in a very positive and dynamic way.
An example of my newfound inner confidence was something that happened during a recent evening out I had with some friends of mine. We were all drinking quite a lot of beer and it was clear that most of my friends were intent on becoming very drunk. I like a drink but not half as much as what other people seem to. At around eleven o’clock I had basically had enough of drinking alcohol and started to drink water. My friends gave me some funny looks and made some comments, they were suggesting that I was not a true male. I did not care what they thought of me and told them so. If I want to drink water then I will.
I am happy with my latest approach to life and am determined not to go back to the way I used to think and live. I do stress at times but quickly attempt to snap out of it by thinking in a more positive way.
I hope that my story has inspired some of you and that you would now be able to also change your own life for good.
