Teen Confidence

From Coach Will @coachingwithwill on Instagram

Here are 10 things teenagers can do to grow in their confidence and take control of their life.
  1. Stop waiting for "enough' motivation and confidence to take action.  Motivation comes directly from action.
  2. Surround yourself with positive people.  You're the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.
  3. Make a list of ALL the things you can control, do the best with them and let go of the rest.
  4. Focus on being present.  Your mind will trick you into thinking the next moment is better than this one.  This one is all you have.
  5. Confidence doesn't come from being good at things.  It comes from not fearing being bad at them.
  6. Ask yourself "What would I do if I had more confidence?" Go and do those things.
  7. Exercise, sleep, and make an effort to see the sun / go outside.
  8. Remind yourself that no matter what society says, you have time.  Lots of it.
  9. Practice delayed gratification.  Stop giving up what you want most for what you want now.
  10. Place confidence in your character, NOT results or others' opinions.
