Having More Confidence Exactly as You Are
Have you ever noticed someone who was self-confident, not to the point of arrogance, but just that it came naturally for them? Some individuals have no apparent issues with self-confidence. How is it that some people seem to walk through life without ever doubting themselves or their intuition while others struggle with this?
Self-confidence is something that people are born with, but the great news is that self-confidence is an achievable and learnable goal. Of course, even the most self-confident person has issues with insecurity and self-doubt from time to time. No one gets away unscathed with that. However, these individuals may be more resilient when things don’t go according to plan and they may be able to rebound a lot quicker than those of us who have little or no self-confidence whatsoever.
Thankfully, there are ways around having little or no self-confidence. While it might take a wee bit of practice, it is certainly something you can learn.
Put it in Writing
We all have our strengths, but we all also tend to focus upon our own weaknesses. If you find yourself doing this, then perhaps it is time to put pen to paper. Start making a list of your good qualities and next to that start making a list of your accomplishments.
When you list your good qualities try to be very specific and show yourself your own uniqueness. For example, don’t just write that you are organized. Be specific and write down that you have wonderful time management skills, therefore, allowing you to be well organized.
Every time you feel discouraged, take a look at your good qualities and also look at your achievements. It is so easy to beat ourselves up and when we see it in writing it makes it easier to remember we have already accomplished so much.
Practice Makes Perfect
Practice being self-confident by taking on what that might feel like. Decide that you are intentionally going to walk into a room and be self-confident. Once you have tried that out, walk in smiling and making brief eye contact and looking up instead of down.
Try this out even if it is just for a short while. Walk into an event and take on the role of being confident. Play a character. Practice makes perfect. Once you have succeeded this one time, you will find it gets easier and easier to be confident and to have it become natural to you.
The Art of Looking Good
When you look good, you feel good. Try to keep this in mind when looking to boost your self-confidence. A new hairdo, a new outfit and having good posture are all ways to change the way you look and feel.
Keep in mind though, when it comes to looking good, don’t focus on looking like everyone else as far as your education, career, choice of hair, and clothing style.
Get in touch with your genuine self and you will shine through with real, authentic confidence every time.
