How To Feel Proud of Yourself

How to feel proud of yourself

Most of us shy away from being overly confident or proud of ourselves. We are very quick to bash ourselves, and most find it difficult to even express that they've done a good job. There's a few simple steps you can take to start feeling prouder of yourself, giving you good self worth and making your mind a little kinder (we can all do with being a little kinder). So here are my steps, on how to feel proud of yourself...

How to feel proud of yourself

This can be any little or big thing that's been achieved for the day. Whether it's sending an email you've been putting off, calling to book an appointment somewhere (one of the worst parts of being an adult), or something as big as getting a promotion. Write it down and celebrate you

A good place to keep these accomplishments is your diary, this way if you're having a bad week, you can look over the past 7 days and see what you've achieved.

Did somebody speak to you wrong and you dealt with it great? Or maybe you tripped up and brushed it off. Overcoming little things is part of life, and the more you do this and celebrate your success the more you can feel proud of your journey. Soon the smaller things won't bother you so much, and you can start celebrating the bigger stuff. 

Don't ever forget about the little stuff though, that's what got you to where you are.

Stop overthinking what will go wrong, and start thinking about whether this is a task you're actually able to overcome. If you are, then start putting steps in place to get through the struggle and actually overcome it. If it isn't something you are possibly able to overcome or help, then accept that and move on. 

Don't dwell on something you can't change.

When your best friend is having a tough time, what do you do? Well, I'll tell you what you don't do - you sure as hell don't tell them all the bad things about them, or tell them that how their feelings are irrelevant. No, no you don't do you? You tell them all the good things about them, and why you love them. Do this to yourself! Stop beating yourself up and celebrate yourself. 

Don't kick somebody when they are down - including yourself.

Stay positive,

  1. Great tips. I am too quick to be negative about myself but I need to start thinking more positively. I bought my mum one of those line a day diaries so she can write down something positive from each day x

  2. Great tips. I suppose a lot of it is down to personality type - I'm an introvert but I'm not really shy yet I struggle to be confident about my abilities and skills etc which shows particularly when I come to write in my CV or on my profile pages etc.

  3. Fabulous tips! I have no trouble feeling proud of myself but sometimes it's what you do with the pride because I feel it's supposed to make feel more confident about my abilities, but it doesn't. That's what I'm still struggling with... any ideas?
