Tips To Build Your Confidence
1. Stay away from negativity and bring on the positivity
This is the time to really evaluate your inner circle, including friends and family.
This is a tough one, but it’s time to seriously consider getting away from those individuals who put you down and shred your confidence.
Even a temporary break from Debbie Downer can make a huge difference and help you make strides toward more self-confidence.
Be positive, even if you’re not feeling it quite yet. Put some positive enthusiasm into your interactions with others and hit the ground running, excited to begin your next project.
Stop focusing on the problems in your life and instead begin to focus on solutions and making positive changes.
2. Change your body language and image
This is where posture, smiling, eye contact, and speech slowly come into play.
Just the simple act of pulling your shoulders back gives others the impression that you are a confident person.
Smiling will not only make you feel better but will make others feel more comfortable around you.
Imagine a person with good posture and a smile and you’ll be envisioning someone who is self-confident.
Go the extra mile and style your hair, give yourself a clean shave, and dress nicely.
Not only will this make you feel better about yourself, but others are more likely to perceive you as successful and self-confident as well.
A great tip: When you purchase a new outfit, practice wearing it at home first to get past any wardrobe malfunctions before heading out.
3. For tough times, when all else fails: Create a great list
Life is full of challenges and there are times when it’s difficult to keep your self-confidence up.
Sit down right now and make a list of all the things in your life that you are thankful for, and another list of all the things you are proud of accomplishing.
Once your lists are complete, post them on your refrigerator door, on the wall by your desk, on your bathroom mirror–somewhere where you can easily be reminded of what an amazing life you have and what an amazing person you really are.
If you feel your self-confidence dwindling, take a look at those lists and let yourself feel and be inspired all over again by you.
Now you’ve been equipped with some great tools to help you build your confidence.
