7 proven ways to gaining self confidence.

Everyone looks in the mirror, see themselves and smile because they love their looks, they're so confident in it that they can go anywhere and approach anyone, but this wasn't the same case with me. What's worse than being shy?,  It's having low self esteem.
        In trying to gain self confidence there are steps you must take just as I did and these are:

1.  Acknowledge the problem.
   I grew up indoors, trusting my head more than people's words. It made me understand less about jokes, less about how people interact and how to fit in but amidst all this, my greatest problem was CONFIDENCE in myself. I had low self esteem because I didn't trust my looks. I'd see others and I'd wish to look more like them because I love the way they look more than the way I look. I'd always wish for a face change.
          This made me not to like jokes nor interact with everyone. People are used to hurling insults whenever they feel offended and it mostly gets on my wrong side, “See your big eyes, see your lips”. Then it'd make me rage a lot and I'd cry to myself because I felt offended, like those words are true but one day I had the chance to sit and think. I asked myself, “Was I created just to look good and impress people?. Is my only purpose looking at the mirror and feeling impressed?”.

2. Change your mindset.
 Truthfully, the way I loook should be the least of my worries but it's not like that anymore. Everyone's cyyoncerned about how they look and they've becomed focused on how they're meant to look, not how they are A PERFECT BODY.
     There's nothing such as a body being perfect. A body without flaws, excess fat or stretch marks is something you see in Cinderella, a work of fiction. Unfortunately you see girls trying to reduce their weight because they believe being thin is the trend now. Well, shame on that thought. Why would you bleach because you hate your skin colour and you believe being light attracts people more?. This isn't related to girls alone as guys also try to build '6 packs abs' and would do anything for it.
I recently asked a friend why he's interested in building his physique and he said “This is what girls love nowadays. If I should take off my shirt, she'll fall for me”. I was surprised because I asked myself “Is it only looks and physique girls care about?”. Come to think of it, most people aren't interested in someone who can't bill all their needs and there you are, body building and dieting because you want someone to crush on you.

3. Love yourself.
You see kids as young as 7 years old wanting to diet, all because they're ashamed of their body. I once saw a movie where a teenager's inner self almost killed her because she was ASHAMED OF HER BODY. It's not a work of fiction, it's the truth. Why go to the extreme by changing things about your divine body all because you don't look like the  'PERFECT'  human.

          So far I'm healthy, shouldn't my looks be just my concern. I shouldn't be stereotyped just because I don't look 'PERFECT'.

4. Redefine perfection.
Come to think of it, what does the world mean by perfect?. Is it the figures magazines portray with their models that's perfect?. Let's forget about religion, I'm sure whoever the creator is, he created us in different designs so we don't look identical. Every single person has a unique feature and that's what makes them special. I HAVE A BIG HEAD?.. Think of all I'm to accomplish with it.. BIG LIPS?.. Maybe, just maybe it's meant to deliver the world from its shackles since the mouth is a powerful weapon.. FAT STATURE?.. Lol 😁.. The creator knows I'll be facing a lot of windy situations but it mustn't carry me away because I have a lot to deliver.

       More so, when we were created, if we were made perfect, then now that we're on Earth, how come we keep on failing to create a perfect machine. Maybe that's because our imperfections are exactly what makes us perfect.. Crazy right?.

5. Change is constant.
        The same person you're dieting for, working out for, have you ever thought of the fact that the person's taste could change?. Whoever will love you will love you for who you are. Beauty isn't a prerequisite for love, it's a prerequisite for lust. The person meant for you will love you for who you are. Be successful in your endeavors and you won't need to run after people, regardless of how you think you look.

6. Gain confidence.
If you want to live your life without the low self esteem that your body causes, then be clean and healthy always; It gives a sense of confidence. Never listen to what everyone says; Insulting people's body is a way they cover up for their own flaws. Also, look for something that you feel connected to. Doesn't have to be love, probably taking pictures of nature, cooking or baking, travel, go canoeing, eat delicacies from different parts of the world and do it with people who care about you.

7. Grow your confidence.
Doing the things that makes you happy will help a lot.
Always be with successful and positive minded people, people who make you want to think about something meaningful to do, something beneficial to the world.
The biggest work likes with you though.
Always be positive and confident in yourself. You look the best you can. Be confident.
Don't go trying to make corrections to things the creator has already perfected. You're already perfect the way you are, all you have to do is believe it.
The creator created us with respect to himself. What could be more honorable?. Let's be proud of that.

Wow.. If you're still reading, seems it really caught your attention.. I hope it helps you positively.. Thanks for your time..

After securing admission into the university of your choice,the faculty and course you earnestly prayed for. You feel on top of the world,you become king of hearts and ladies queen of the coast.

You feel like you've achieved something nobody else has achieved,you on top of the academic ladder true it's the last phase in academics though,you even start choosing class of friends to talk to"my medicine and law freshmen "I know it ain't easy gaining admission to study this top courses,utmost respect for you guys.

The next thing you think of is turning your body to a fashion catalogue,the latest gucci,moschino,versace,celine dior and to the ladies you get the latest khloe lipstick. All this are really good seriously though fashion is life also life isn't about fashion or class. An adage says as you lay your bed so you lie on it,why not use your freshmen life to start laying the most exquisite bed you ever thinked of, laying those goals for your life should be more of interest to you.yoruba says "ati okere Jin Jin Ni elekun ti mu ekun sun." Start that preparation for your life now.

I see many youths or let me say graduate prepare for their life after school when they are out of the school which leads to a lot of problem in the society. unless you who strive hard to be different,you can never be different. The world today is about setting goals and achieving those goals. Plan your future which would set that class you want.

Nevertheless,dont forget education is light but it doesn't lead a path only experience does so gain the experience wherever you can live your life to the fullest, play when it calls for and quietly watch the ways of men and you will see a page in the diary of life.

The ultimate guide to college life.

So I was thinking of my first day in school and what really came to me was what others have thought of, the great decision to be the best.
We're familiar with the most popular student saying "I will be the best". Yes many of us wants to be the best among our peers but not all work towards being the best because we fail to understand that until you do the EXTRA you'll keep getting the ordinary.
Extraordinary people add extra things to the ordinary principles. That's to say you can't be the best if you don't start from being good.

Every student go through the trying stage so you're not alone at stage one and there's no other way to up except through the ground. I'll be giving you some tips that will be useful in your journey of academic success.

1. Identity your purpose.

You don't go to the market without a purpose and such should be applied here. Have you ever wondered why exactly are you in school. There are other options beside getting a degree so for you to make that choice of being in school you got to have a purpose for that.

2. Passion.

I know it seems funny but the same way you want to have fun at a party you must see school as fun. Now you've identified your purpose you need to have passion for it. You cannot keep on paying tuitions when you don't have the zeal to study. Your passion for learning keeps you going, its what make lectures interesting when your fellow students want to be anywhere but the lecture room.

3. Work towards it.

Like I said earlier that it's your passion that gives you that intense desire to read one more chapter after the other till you realize you've covered most of your syllabus. If you're aiming for an A you have to read from a C to a B and before you know it you're on an A
 It takes time and dedication to achieve your goal.

You don't walk out of a store because you didn't get your desire instead you order for it and keep on checking having expectations that you'll get your package at record time and that's the same mindset you should apply here.

4. Balancing schedules.

Now you want to put more effort into reading and you're being invited to a party. While contemplating you remember your church program and you're suppose to rehearsal with the drama band. Intact you'll end up breaking down with all these on your mind. What I did then was to write a schedule and stick to it. It's not easy but your ability to balance your schedule will help you go a long way, it will keep you right on track without sabotaging your plans at the end of the day.

5. Reading planner.

I know a reading planner or timetable seems old fashioned and kind of annoying (yes it was to me), having to follow a written order is sometimes boring and you tend to under OE over do it.
This is one mistake most students make. Yes we know you desperately need an A in that professor's course but you're forgetting you'll also need to pass the lecturer's test.
There are times I put all my effort on one course while lacking behind on others because I thought one was more important than the other when In actual sense a needs to pass all the courses because no one likes a carryover.

6. Moderation is the key.

Now you've read and read and it seems you're falling in love with your books but hey dearie they're other stuffs awaiting you. Remember the schedule you planned earlier, yea, you got to follow it. There's time for everything and marathon reading can actually burn you up faster than you think.

7. Sleep.

This is one thing I love. All read and no sleep makes you a robot. You've got to give your brain and body resting time. I'm not saying you have to stick to the eight hour rule (who does that anyway) but you have to give your body time to recover from excessive stress.

8. Have fun.

I'm sure most of you have been waiting for this, here you have it. Have fun, shake a leg girl and go get the ball my football fan. All work and no play makes jack a dull boy, so have fun.
College is a life on its own and there are many good things to learn outside the classroom; so meet the right people to get the right things.
