Jun 22, 2018 | Australian College

Success and confidence go hand in hand. However, a lot of people struggle with no confidence or very low levels of confidence. How can we overcome our fear and build up our self-confidence to achieve success? Learn how to solve the confidence gap.

Celebrate all your achievements


You might experience good and bad things in your daily life but don’t let the bad things pull you down. Believe that you can overcome obstacles and then celebrate your achievements no matter big or small. Find your silver lining!

Focus on exercise & fitness


“It is exercise alone that supports the spirits, and keeps the mind in vigor.” – Marcus Tullius Cicero

Studies show that there is a strong connection between your brain and your body. Movement can influence your brain in a very positive way – it improves the way you think and feel, gives you higher self-esteem, reduces stress, feelings of confusion, fatigue, anxiety and depression. Exercise more to improve your health and well-being.

Always be positive

One of the most important keys to success is positive thinking. In order for a positive mindset to yield great results, you also have to take positive action to ensure you achieve a good outcome even if your current circumstances are not as you wish them to be. Effort and hard work are necessary.

Seek support

Ask your family and friends for help or join a support group. It’s great to be surrounded by people you trust and get the acknowledgment and affirmation that you need. They can help you gain courage and self-assurance.

Follow through

You gain respect from other people if you say you’re going to do something and you do it. Believe in yourself that you can do it and make it a habit and you won’t be afraid to do things in order to accomplish your goals.

Study & learn something new


“As long as you keep going, you’ll keep getting better. And as you get better, you gain more confidence. That alone is success.” -Tamara Taylor


“Through my education, I didn’t just develop skills, I didn’t just develop the ability to learn, but I developed confidence.” -Michelle Obama

Keep your mind well nourished and active! Studying gives you a great advantage and can improve a lot of things in your life such as your communication skills, critical-thinking and problem-solving. It could boost your confidence in your own abilities and eventually opens doors of opportunities.
