I Can Do It! Confidence Builders

If you want to grow more and more confident, here are some things you can do:

  • Pray, as Moses did, that the Lord will help you remember that you are His child and that you have an important work to do.

  • Make a list of your strengths and good qualities.

  • Read and ponder your patriarchal blessing, or prepare to receive one.

  • Serve others, and write in your journal how service makes you feel.

  • Eat well and exercise. Your body is a gift from God, and good nutrition and physical activity will lift your mood and help you feel better about yourself.

  • Offer prayers of gratitude, and record your gratitude in a journal.

  • Develop your talents.

  • Keep the commandments.

Remember that confidence does not come by being better than someone else. It comes from knowing you are a child of God and doing what He would have you do.
