Actions to boost your self-confidence | The Brave Hearted

How to overcome your fears and take your place at the table

I talk a lot about the need for women to take their place, live boldly and make a difference – while contributing to shape new, courageous and successful female role models. I believe that for women it’s time to seriously commit to fulfilling their potential. And still, everyday I see a lot of women holding themselves back. If you are one of them, in this post you’ll learn how you can start taking more responsibility over your life and actually make things happen.

I have this vision of a future in which women thrive. I see this potential in women, in you, to become free and independent, able to make your own choices and shape a life that is really built on what makes you happy. A life in which you have the courage of your convictions and you live brave-heartedly. Full of joy, good health and with everything that matters to you. Can you picture that? I surely can.

How to stop being a victim

The victim mindset has a limiting and negative impact on a lot of women. If you’re stuck in this type of mindset, it will impact the way you see yourself and lower your self-esteem. It’ll impact the way you think, feel and behave in the world, leading you to be a victim again. This is why, if you want to be able to achieve your goals and live a bold life, switching to a winner mindset is mandatory.

Have you ever seen a woman who spends a lot of energy in blaming others and herself about what happened to her and explaining that this is why her life is destined to be a failure? A woman who seems to have a lot of bad luck and to be surrounded by manipulators and other people who keep taking advantage of her? Have you ever been that woman? I was and I know how hard it can be to stop being a victim. If you feel the same, this post is for you.

Confidence and new role models for women

Confidence for women is a concept that hasn’t been clearly defined yet. We have different ideas of what feeling confident means and what a confident woman looks like. Confidence for women hasn’t been clearly defined yet because it’s something new. Empowering women is a work in progress and we are still shaping new roles that didn’t exist just some years ago.

Is low self-confidence affecting your life?

I am asked this question several times per day and in this article I want to give you an answer. If you recognise yourself in what I am describing here, chances are that low self-confidence and low self-esteem are affecting your life and preventing you from getting what you want. Here I explain you why it’s time to do something for it.

Until fear of failure can be moderated, a woman who fears that she isn’t or won’t be good enough will not be able to take pleasure in living.

Are you a people pleaser?

If you are a people pleaser, you are used to behave as if you were worth less than others. You adapt to what others want – or what you think they want. But what’s behind this behaviour and how can you overcome it? With this exercise, I help you to get more clarity and make the first steps forward.

In this post I’m talking about what it means to be a people pleaser, from the perspective of a recovered one (myself). I’m talking about all those moments when you hold yourself back and choose to behave how you think it’s expected from you. When you say what you think others want to hear, when you behave in a way that is likeable on purpose – in some cases, just to regret it later. When you don’t express preferences, opinions and don’t set boundaries. Oh, I’ve done this for such a long time – and I still catch myself doing it sometimes.
