Confidence is easier said than done, with many of us experiencing feelings of insecurity at some point in our lives.
Whether it’s our bodies or our daily lives, it’s easy to worry that we’re not doing something we should be.
It might surprise you to know that even celebrities struggle with this, despite them being icons that many of us take inspiration from.
One in particular is TV presenter Davina McCall, known for her appearances on Big Brother, The £100k Drop, and Long Lost Family.
In a recent interview for her new lifestyle magazine This is Davina, the 51-year-old got incredibly candid with readers.
In the one-off issue, she spoke about the key to feeling good about yourself, which she described as ‘not caring what others think’.
A big part of self-confidence comes from achieving your goals, and that sense of fulfilment once you’ve ticked something off your list. Davina offered readers a simple trick for making this happen, which she described as ‘the power of making a public declaration’.
She explained, “When I say something out loud – especially on TV – I know I am going to have to do it, and I really like that. But you don’t need to get on TV. Just have a party with friends and, all of you, make a declaration that “this time next year” you will have achieved your goal.”
This level of support is something we can all get behind, as achieving things feels so much easier when you have people to keep you accountable.
Plus, we all love an excuse for a party, so we might just be taking Davina’s comments on board!
As well as verbalising your goal, Davina recommends writing it down and putting it in a jar which you’d open a year from now. Whether it’s fitness, a new hobby or a career goal, it’s a lot less daunting when you’ve got people to help you along the way.
