7 Successful Tips to Gain Happiness
RIGHT NOW + Keep it FOREVER
- How to Get Back Up and FIGHT for Your Happiness
It’s likely you have listened to that nagging voice in the back of your head, telling you to rethink a decision or avoid taking risks. That little voice is self-doubt. Phrases such as “You can’t do it!” and “You’re going to fail!” bombard your confidence and your happiness.
Don’t let self-doubt rule your life. Instead, fight for your personal and professional happiness with these WINNING tips:
- Relish in Your Successes
When you’re down and out, the last thing that crosses your mind is how you won battles in the past. However, basking in the sweet glow of your past successes is exactly what you need to do to overcome self-doubt. Although it is often difficult to remember just how much you have accomplished at times, a handy list can keep you motivated and inspired. Jot down some of your most treasured accomplishments – both personally and professionally – and refer to this list when you are feeling less confident. There’s nothing wrong with giving yourself a well-deserved pat on the back when you need it the most.
- Trust Yourself
You have achieved success in the past, so why question your ability to make strong decisions now? Instead of becoming your own worst enemy, become your biggest fan. When self-doubt creeps in, remind yourself that you have never let yourself down intentionally before and you are not about to do it now. Stay true to who you are and trust in your strengths to power through any type of challenge. After all, you are a fighter, just like Tommy.
- Try and Try Again
Every single successful individual has failed at some point. It doesn’t matter if you view these as small or big failures, you have to appreciate what you have learned to avoid letting self-doubt stop you from trying again. Evaluate the lessons learned, incorporate what you know already into your actions and try, try, and try again. Don’t look back on your life wishing you had taken some risks. Try now and achieve for success … always.
- Pinpoint Your Doubts
Your insecurities can catch you off guard. Learn how to recognize why these doubts and insecurities surface and identify the triggers to ward off self-doubt in the future. For example, do you find yourself questioning your expertise when sitting in a staff meeting? Why is that? Do you feel as if you are not as qualified as your colleagues? Work to change this by increasing your knowledge or taking a workshop or class to boost your confidence.
- Transform Your Self-Talk
Talking yourself out of trying to succeed stifles your happiness and encourages your self-doubt. Catch yourself when you begin to degrade your efforts and your accomplishments. Practice positive talk and only point out your strengths and your achievements. You can even post positive affirmations in your home or office to remind you that you have what it takes to make your dreams and goals a reality.
- Avoid Negative People
Believe it or not, the people you surround yourself with can drastically influence your confidence and your mindset. Take notice of the attitudes of your colleagues, family members and friends. If you find yourself feeling down or influenced with negativity, limit your time with those who may poison your mind. Instead, build a group of supportive and motivated individuals in which you can spend your time with on a regular basis. Even a mentor or member of your network with clear passion can inspire you to fight self-doubt and work toward your goals.
