Exude a Deaf Attitude at the Societal Judgements
The third key to building Self-confidence is to exude a deaf attitude towards societal judgments. We all are indeed being judged at some or the other phases of life. Human beings are open to judgments, no? however allowing the judgements to percolate our mind is none other than, us, inviting those toxic guests. We should train ourselves in such a way that our mind responds those judgements lightly not rebelliously.
The fear of judgements can affect all the aspects of our life, for ex- friendships, family, relationships, & certainly in the workplace too. It can take us miles away from our dreams & goals.
Three tried & tested methods to Overcome Judgements.
- Take Notice of your Inner Voice – We often overlook our self instincts, our self guts & walk down the roads paved by others.
Affirm today that “I’m my biggest judge”. Do whatever you think yields the best from you regardless of others opinions. Practice cropping negative people not only from photographs but also from your Social media & surroundings. Refrain yourself from taking updates. Take the power to control your thoughts & actions.
- Acknowledge your strengths – People often hesitate to show up their strengths & talents in the fear of someone commenting them ” Show off chick”. learn to introspect yourself & make yourself aware of the things you are great at. Accept your shortcomings. Be so proud of your attributes so that there shouldn’t be any space for confusion. Absorb the positivity from the talents you have, because when you absorb positivity, you radiate the same.
- Give your Wellbeing the first priority– Exerting a nature of investing yourself in setting a new hobby, taking a new diet plan, learning a new skill leads to Personal Development.
