As has been said many times, we are all different, we are all individuals. Therefore an idea which is helpful to one person wonít be to another or it might be quite unnecessary. Sometimes we read an idea which isnít helpful to us in the form presented but if we make a few changes it will work for us. It is important to know our weaknesses and strengths and be honest about them to ourselves. This brings me to a couple of ideas which I find helpful and I hope others will also benefit from these.

Like many other people I am more likely to dwell on what I see as my failures rather than my successes. I tend to doubt my abilities and my inner critic has a loud voice. How can I boost my confidence?

I find it helpful to keep copies of anything positive people have written about me. This is for my eyes only and not a form of boasting. I have a scrapbook in which I have pasted copies of written references penned by colleagues and managers in the past. These days references are commonly done over the phone but way back they were in written form. I have thank you cards and letters of appreciation from friends and people I worked with. Some of the items are decades old but they all help me to concentrate on what I can do well rather than the things I have messed up or think I have failed at.

I enjoy writing but at times have doubts about my ability. I recently made copies of merit awards I received when I did a writing course and pasted them on a large sheet of card. Then I added copies of encouraging comments from people who have read some of my creative writing and articles. As well, I printed off inspirational quotes in bright colours and pasted these on my sheet of card. After adding a few colourful illustrations my poster was finished. I keep this poster above the desk where I write. When I lack confidence I look up and can read something encouraging.

I hope these ideas might motivate others needing encouragement to focus on their successes and achievements.
