Look at your posture. Do you slouch? Make sure you stand up straight- confident people don’t slouch, and walking upright will automatically make you feel more confident.
Start each day with a smile- look in the mirror and give yourself a big grin. Say something positive such as ‘Looking good!’ or ‘I like myself’. You may feel silly at first but your subconscious will take note and automatically make you feel more confident.
If you have a task you need to undertake, make sure you are thoroughly prepared for it. Do any research needed and make notes. Knowing you are well prepared will give you confidence in your ability to do a great job.
Be nice to yourself. Give your subconscious the message that you are worth treating well. Take time out for yourself- enjoy a long hot soak, have a facial, go for an invigorating walk.
Study people who you admire for their self confidence. What do they do to create the air of confidence? How do they present themselves? How do they talk? Start to act in the same way and you will automatically become more confident.
Focus on your strengths and achievements rather than on failures. Write a list of the things you have done or can do well.
Get out of your comfort zone from time to time- try a new sport of hobby that is more challenging than your usual chosen pursuits. Once you start to master it you will develop more confidence in your abilities.
Break any large task down into smaller, more achievable steps and reward yourself when you have completed each one.
Set yourself small goals and reward yourself when you reach them. Start off with simple goals and gradually set yourself more challenging goals as your confidence in your ability to achieve them grows.
Avoid focusing on so called role models with ‘perfect’ figures portrayed on television or in glossy magazines. If you compare yourself with these unachievable ‘ideals’ your self esteem and body image will plummet. Realize that a lot of those glossy images are airbrushed into something which doesn’t even exist. Many of these ‘celebrities’ actually suffer from poor self esteem and are very unhappy people. Learn to like you- just as you are!
Make an effort with your appearance. Make sure your hair is fixed and you are dressed smart- even if you are only going to the store to pick up the groceries. You will feel so much better about yourself.
If you follow some of these self confidence tips, you should find your confidence levels rising almost instantly.
