You don't have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great

In my college years, I got involved with a public speaking club and since then, I have found myself competing and speaking on numerous international stages. These exhilarating experiences helped me find my ‘Why?’ and inspired me to share my stories with others. When I asked my friends and colleagues to describe me in 3 words, they said: an authentic, energetic and inspiring storyteller. Very kind of them. But in fact, these are precisely the attributes I bring to my keynote speeches to talk about topics that affect every one of us. And I love what I do.

Research actually shows that the more time people spend on Facebook, the lower their self-esteem. You know it's true. Do these regularly when you need a self-confidence boost:
1. List all the cool sh*t your body has helped you do.
2. Talk about your butt. Or your boobs. Or your hair. Make sure you're also focusing on the things that you love about yourself.
3. Make a Google doc of all your wins.
4. Adopt affirmations—yes, really.
5. Do nice stuff.
6. Talk to yourself like a true BFF.
7. Fake it 'til you make it.

Do not be critical of yourself to others. Whilst it can be useful to confide your concerns to someone you trust, telling the world is something else. Be kind to yourself. Make a list of your good qualities and believe them, believe in yourself.

Everyone has problems, so why should yours be greater than others? By being negative you can isolate yourself from others and cut yourself off from solutions to problems.

Research showed that people who compared themselves to others experienced envy. And the more envy they experienced, the worse they felt about themselves. It can be a vicious cycle.

Allow time for yourself each day. This may only be a few minutes, but it is important to be quiet and to unwind.

You need to do something you love so you don't get bored. If you're happy, the more confident you are.

Allow yourself a treat from time to time, especially if you have overcome a hurdle in personal presentation, particularly after your first formal talk or after a successful meeting. It does not have to be expensive - a cup of coffee at a pleasant place, or some other treat.

Congratulate yourself on a job or task well done and perhaps tell a friend. Do not always be the one to give out praise, you need some too. Justified praise is a good boost to morale.

Learn to channel nerves and tension positively. When you are nervous, adrenalin is pumped through the body and you feel more keyed up and alert. This extra energy can be used to good effect; enabling you to communicate with greater enthusiasm and intensity, for example.

A 2016 study published in Neuropsychiatric Disease and Treatment showed that regular physical activity improved participants’ body image. And when their body image improved, they felt more confident.

Learn to be assertive. Stand up for what you believe in and do not be pressured by others.

When you notice you are drawing comparisons, remind yourself that doing so isn’t helpful. Everyone is running their own race and life isn’t a competition.

Make self-care a top priority. When you’re feeling at your best physically, you’ll naturally feel more confident about yourself.

Self-compassion involves treating yourself with kindness when you make a mistake, fail, or experience a setback. Speaking to yourself harshly, won’t motivate you to do better.

Rather than beat yourself up or call yourself names, try speaking to yourself like you’d talk to a trusted friend. Cut yourself some slack, laugh at yourself, and remind yourself that no one is perfect.
