One of the most common signs of anxiety is self consciousness. I hear most days from clients that they think people either think negatively about them or are even talking about them. This “what will people think” mindset causes much anxiety.
People come to me wanting me to take away their feelings of stress and anxiety in the hope they can return to their normal ways. What they don’t understand is that their normal ways is what caused the stress in the first place. Often the first thing they ask me is what is stress?

The key to more self confidence
Think about this. You do so many good things every week but you never congratulate yourself on those things. You just take them for granted. Instead you focus on what you could have done better and criticise yourself about it.
You focus on your weakest areas and make them the focal point of your life. When you do this you become stuck in the loop of self doubt.
Here’s the truth
Just because you did something before and weren’t that good at it doesn’t mean you can’t do that thing in the future. That’s down to lack of experience rather than not being able to do it.
Nobody is the finished article when we are younger. You’re not even the finished article now!
If you want more self confidence you need to pat yourself on the back for all the things you do well. Focus on your strengths and what you’re good at.
Accept a bit of self praise and that will help you build up the areas that need more work.
It’s all about what you focus on!
