The Small Efforts That Help You Build Inner Confidence

collaborative post

Confidence is not a resource that has an unlimited supply. Much like a fire, it needs to be fuelled. In damp, dark or breathless environments, that flame can slowly start to fall into embers. That being said, these embers are never fully extinguished. Even if you go through very intense and harmful life situations, situations that leave you feeling much less than you are, you can still nurture those emblems to a full, fiery passion.


Fire is a good metaphor to use for confidence, because in some people we can see it raging out of control. This is where confidence slowly becomes arrogance, and that can be dangerous. Building clean, humble confidence is the best way to focus on yourself and move towards the best version of you, no matter who you are or what you hope to accomplish in life. To that end, it’s worth giving yourself permission to begin. When you can do that, you slowly start to blossom. However, it’s important to realize that it’s not always the great achievements that give you confidence, but the smaller daily considerations that can aid you on your path.
