3 Ways to Build Confidence | Journal Ideas

Hi everyone, today I am going to show you 3 ways you can practice self love to become a confident person. More often than not, I find myself excited
for a project and then when it comes time to start, I don’t. Instead, I watch and research other people’s
work and compare what I have not yet done to what they have already accomplished. I then lose confidence in myself, doubt my
abilities, and then lose motivation. So, since I want this habit to end, I need to
start creating a new healthy productive habit. The First exercise is to create a list of
your top 5 to 10 accomplishments in the last year. They can vary in size from minor to major. but the most important thing is that you are proud of them. I am going to take some of my lists a step
further by drawing them into some sort of imagery. You don’t have to do this, but give it a
try and see where it takes you if you want. I am pretty sure that I am going to make many
spellings errors, but that’s okay, no one is supposed to read this but me and you guys
if you hit the pause button. Now read each answer out loud and let them
sink into your space. The Second exercise is to create a list of
5 things you appreciate in your life. Many of you probably heard about the gratitude
list, this takes it a step further. Gratitude is simply the the quality of being
thankful while appreciation is recognition of the value, significance, or magnitude
of people and things basically how it makes us feel and how we benefit from the things we found grateful for. This will help weed out the negatives and
focus on the positives and how it has affected you. So, for example, I am thankful for knowing
the love my dad for 27 years I’ve inherited his sense of humor and drive for success and that motivates me to accomplish my goals in order make him proud, up above. While you are writing these, pause between
each line to embrace each item. We can get caught up on things that go wrong
and those can overshadow all the things that went right. And if we learn to enhance those little positive
moments and laugh at the things that go wrong, everyday would be a good day. Now for the third exercise to write down all of your fears. What is stopping you from being productive? Why are you comparing yourself and work to
others? Do you feel like you are not good enough,
that your work is subpar compared to others? Or will you be embarrassed? Read these out loud and think of positive
sides to the fears and then write them down on another page. So for example: I am afraid of starting because
I don’t think that I’ll produce a quality video people want to watch. I am not good enough and I am boring. The twist on that would be: I am going to
produce a good quality video that people will watch, I am good enough. And if I fail, then I will try again because
I can. Use these as your personal positive affirmations
before you start your projects or in the morning when you get up. Believe me, starting off the day on a positive note will help you gain confidence throughout your life. I am taking one of my positive affirmations
and turning it into poster that I can place on my desk or hang on my wall as a reminder
to believe in myself. Again, if you want, you can do this too and
see where it leads. Be creative, make a collage if you can’t
draw, or simply type it out or write it out into a poster. Surprise yourself and try. You are special, there is no one in the world identical to you, so embrace your journey, the ups and downs, but most importantly, you have to take the first step I hope this video helped you to realize that
you are capable of change, of learning, and of becoming more confident. I am happy that I can share my struggles with
you and help inspire you along the way. Thank you so much for watching and I’ll
see you next time! Bye!

  4. I reached the appreciation list and literally had to pause the video. Your passage about your father sounds like you lost him recently, and if so my condolences. I lost my father very abruptly Feb2016, 6 months after my wedding, and my life has been in an upheaval ever since. The last 2 years have stripped so much from me with every strike but more and more im encountering moments that make me see more of him in myself between these scars than i ever imagined. I see his humor, his sass, the wisdom he spent every day he could poured into me, his love… I'll definitely have to use that list, i can't Not use it after feeling so deeply moved. Thank you for this video and that encouraging moment. ❤

  32. Just found your video / channel. And thank God I did. What you say about having ideas but not giving them life, and instead look at what others do…..that is 100% me. I compare my work way too much with others…and still I want to be original. That is not compatible. I need to stop! You have given me so much inspiration from this one video. Thank you sooo much!! You are very talented, and I can tell that you are a beautiful soul! 😊

  34. Thank you for being such an inspiration to me!!!!! I've just recently got a new sketchbook and it scares me……
    I've already done a collage and a welcome page saying that it's my sketchbook…….but after that I was lost…..however after this video, I'm going to do what I want with my sketchbook. If I want to write in it, I will. If i want to draw in it, I will. If I for some reason want to smush food on it, I will. Thank you so much for this lovely video, and amazing drawings with advice and ideas alongside with motivation to carry on…… Hope you have an amazing day!!!! Lots of love Molly xx 😊😊

  35. Thank you, I had problems with self-confidence and connection between me and other people, and for your video I can find a way to be prouder of myself as a human being.

  36. Hi Christine! First of all I like tot tell you how wonderfull I think your drawings are. I wonder where you get your inspiration from to draw? Somelike you say in the beginning of your video; I find myself comparing, searching, watching the work of others and then get a personal lock down. I do struggle with perfectionisme. Thank you so much.

  37. Looooove your drawings! They are perfection simply as line drawings! I would love to see you turn something like this into a children’s book! The drawings are so appealing and your handwriting is fabulous! children are never to young to start learning about the subjects you cover here. I know I would buy it! ❤️
