Self-doubt is a monster. Sometimes it seems that it only takes a moment's disappointment to break down a year of confidence. What many don't realize is that this is because we don't know ourselves quite as well as we should(or think we do). Knowing yourself thoroughly, all of your strengths and weaknesses is a goal that should be pursued above all others.
It affects our experiences in this world directly and importantly, how we deal with failures. If you fall and don't know why you fell then your fears can become irrational. One who has gained self-awareness and self-trust can instead say, 'Oh, I fell because I didn't respect my weakness in THAT area. Next time I will prepare.'
It can be as simple as that. Here are some tips to help you grow your confidence as you get to know yourself.
