How to have confidence in yourself

Self-confidence can be the make it or break it, difference in your entire lifestyle. Self-confidence is the difference between being an unstoppable force and feeling afraid. The way you see yourself has a huge impact on the way others see you. Your perception of yourself is your reality so the more confidence you have in yourself, the more likely you are to succeed in all areas of your life. Many different things add to feeling confident in yourself and some of those things are out of your control but there are certain steps you can take to have confidence in yourself and they start with:

Dressing Up

The clothes definitely don’t make you who you are but they definitely can affect the way you feel about yourself. No one is more aware of how you look than you are. So in order to have confidence in yourself you need to dress well! When you don’t look good it changes the way you carry yourself and even the way you communicate with other people. Dress well and take care of your personal appearance. In most cases you will find that button down shirt or that nice blouse really helps you to have confidence in yourself.

Sit Up Straight

Just like dressing nicely can change the way you carry yourself, the way you carry yourself in general can give or take away confidence in yourself. Having good posture will automatically make anyone feel more confident. Standing up straight, keep your head up and making eye contact are all great ways to feel more confident. Plus good posture makes a good impression on other and is empowering.

Be Grateful

When you are focused on what you want and never what you have the mind begins to tell you reasons as to why you can’t or don’t have what you want. This can cause you to focus on what is wrong with you or your weakness. The best way to have confidence in yourself is to be grateful for how much you already have because you are so amazing. When you focus on what you already have you realize how great you already are. Remember all those successful moments, unique skills, relationships and positivity you have experienced. This is a great way to gain confidence in yourself.

Compliment Someone Else or Give to Someone Else

We get what we give and the same goes for confidence in ourselves. If you want confidence in yourself try to help someone out with theirs. Praise other people and refuse to engage in negative talk about anyone. By doing this you will bring out the best in someone else and then bring out the confidence in yourself.  The same goes for giving to others. When you focus too much on yourself and not on other people’s needs, you worry about your own flaws. When you focus on other people and what you can contribute you forget about what is wrong with you and build your confidence in yourself due to your good deeds.
