Confidence Boosting Exercise – Ask Five People, Five Things
What is this exercise?
This confidence boosting exercise invites you to collect feedback from various people in your life. We want you to look at the strengths of these conversation, what they reveal about you, and how you can adjust your self-perception to be more positive. To create a more well-rounded view of yourself, you are going to ask five people whose opinion you trust and respect five questions. Let them know they should take about five minutes to answer them: you’re not looking for an essay, just their gut response.
Why is this important?
When you’re experiencing low self-confidence or low self-esteem, you are seeing yourself through a distorted lens. Our shortcomings and failings are accentuated. The times we didn’t ‘make it’, the times we fell short, or our current struggle can be at the front of our minds. These experiences can overwhelm us and become real barriers to seeing ourselves with more kindness and objectivity. To help redress the balance of our self-perception it’s useful to invite in other perspectives.
This exercise is an opportunity and an invitation to do exactly that!
If you are experiencing too much resistance to get into this, or feel overwhelmed by your feedback, we have dedicated mental support for those that feel they need help. Head to our website filmtvcharity.org.uk, or call our 24/7 Film & TV Support Line on 0800 054 0000
