Confidence: why a support network is important.

Do you often wonder how you can improve your confidence and self-belief? Do you have low self-esteem? It’s hard to build confidence and it takes time. Having a network of people around you to support you can give you a great lift. Sometimes lack of confidence is not always as obvious as you think.

I speak to many different people claiming to have low confidence, but portray themselves so well, that you really wouldn’t know it! That’s why it’s great to discuss with others how you feel. Your confidence comes from within, and if you get positive feedback about yourself from other people it will do you the world of good! Get a new perspective by listening to feedback from others.

Confidence is all about how you feel, confidence can come and go depending on your emotion. One day you may feel on top of the world ready to tackle anything you face, other days you may not feel as confident and then it has an impact on your self-esteem and mood. This is all perfectly normal but having a positive outlook on life will help to maintain your confidence and self-belief.

If you are generally a half glass empty kind of person it can be difficult to find the path back to positive thinking which will fuel your confidence. A negative outlook on life will attract negativity, surrounding yourself with positive people who only see the best in things, this will soon get you back on track. 

Concentrate on success and learn from failure

We should learn from failures in life, don’t see them as negative occurrences, see them as learning curves, we learn from our mistakes and failures in order to succeed. Without these hurdles, we wouldn’t really know what success feels like. When you do succeed at something which you were once unsuccessful with, it will give you the ability to believe in yourself, which in turn boosts your confidence. 

We have developed Sage Facebook Community Support Groups in order to provide a comfort blanket for our members. Our groups are highly interactive and full of wonderful people who offer their support and advice. Psychological safety can have a massive impact on your self-confidence, having somewhere where you feel safe to air your problems and not worry about what others think is vital for confidence building.

Research has shown that support groups can have a positive impact on mental health and self-belief. Having a fantastic network of people around you who you can approach with questions and share your thoughts will really boost your self-confidence.
