Here are 5 Tips to Help You Embody Self-Confidence:
Each time you notice a negative thought about yourself switch your focus to something more positive. Negative thoughts drain your self-confidence.
For example, if you have a thought about not accomplishing all your goals, you can offset it with what you have accomplished. Have ready answers for any negativity.
This may seem like a strange way to increase your confidence, but research shows that those who have higher self-esteem talk slower. Learn to speak slower and pause more often. Your words matter, and you don’t have to rush them to express yourself.
People who are not confident in their words or themselves tend to speak very fast.
Start a Healthy Habit.
A healthy habit such as exercising on the weekends or eating fruit at breakfast is an excellent way to boost your self-esteem. You’ll be able to feel confident that you’re following through with your goals.
Focus on Your Body Language.
Are you scared to raise your head and look people in the eye? Are you frightened to stand up straight and walk with confidence? Your body language shows the world your confidence or lack of it.
Mimic strong body language even if you’re not feeling confident. By looking more confident, you’ll start to feel this way.
There are several types of lists you can make to increase confidence:
- The first is a list of your accomplishments.
Dig deep and include all the rewards, ribbons, and other prizes you’ve won. Include things from both the past and present on this list.
- The second list is the things that you’re grateful for right now.
This list will show you that you have many things in your life that matter and make you happy.
- Post your lists in a prominent place in your home so you can see them on a consistent basis.
If you incorporate these habits into your daily routines, you’ll enjoy increased self-confidence very quickly.
