Top 10 Ways to Become More Confident in Your Writing #1

Recognize and Acknowledge Your StrengthsAt one time or another, many writers felt the same as lots of others do and that confidence seems to come easier to some. Writers, especially new writers may struggle with it to a greater degree.  From the beginning “Recognize and Acknowledge Your Strengths.”

Confidence is an aspect of a writer’s life that can improve with practice. No one is born with confidence. The parents are the first ones in a child’s life to build confidence in their children while they are growing and developing.

If that trait was not encouraged as you were growing up, the key is to learn how to tap into that attitude yourself. The more confidence you have, the more you want to write and put your work out to the public.

As you progress through the short series of emails that you signed up for, I’ll be suggesting some writing exercises or little tasks to do that I believe will benefit you; new and experienced writers.

I believe we sabotage ourselves because we lack confidence.  We allow the negative and weaknesses that may have been imposed upon us by well-meaning friends and/or family. 

Believe in yourself.  You have so many skills, strengths, experiences, and so much knowledge to share.  Never focus on your weaknesses.  Always acknowledge and embrace your strengths. That’s where you have the most to offer.

Your First Exercise:

RecognizeandAcknowledgeYourStrengthsMake a list by writing down everything that you’re good at, all you’ve accomplished and what you are the most proud of. 

Keep adding to this list as you accomplish more.

A “Must Do” is to keep the list with you at all times and read it when you feel even the slightest bit of doubt or your self confidence is slipping a little.  This is something new for you, so you “WILL” have to work at it. 

You are the only one that can allow others to try and take that confidence and self-esteem away from you.

Set aside some time everyday; from 10 to 30 minutes and just write.  Free writing, brain dumping or working on an article or story you already have started.
