Self-confidence seems to be elusive cure-all for our day-to-day struggles and disappointments. If we just had the self-confidence, then we would be able to accomplish all of the things we want to achieve. Life would be less stressful, more positive, and more fulfilling if we could just achieve that almost mythical state. Luckily, with a little practice, self-confidence is completely within your grasp! This isn’t a state of being that’s bred in the bone – it is a habit and a state of mind that can enrich anyone’s life with the practice of a few techniques. Here are three things to implement in your everyday life in order to become a more confident person:
- Avoid negative people whether they are friends or family and bring on the positivity. Surrounding yourself with people who bring you down and pick at your confidence is the exact opposite thing your social support should be doing, so spend your time around people who are positive and encouraging. The flip side is that you need to put effort into being positive too – even when you don’t feel like it.
- Change the way you carry and present yourself. Straighten those shoulders, look at the person you’re talking to, speak clearly, and give it a smile. If you present yourself like someone who should be taken seriously and knows what she’s doing, and people will be more likely to see you that way.
- Back up your confidence with the knowledge you need to be successful by learning everything there is to know about your next project or presentation. If you’re prepared and have the smarts to back yourself up, your self-confidence will only grow!
