We all have people in our life that we want to be like. There are people that we enjoy being around because of their energy and confidence, people are just drawn to them. They don’t have to be ‘in your face’ to be confident. Because really, being confident is all about being happy in yourself and confident with who you are. Not necessarily who is happiest talking in front of large crowds or likes to be the center of attention. So if you want to be more like those people that admire, then you can be. There are several steps that you can take to help give your confidence a boost. You might feel a bit of the imposter syndrome to start with. But after a while, and as your confidence grows, you’ll be happier in yourself and more confident in life.
It is quite easy to make some changes in your life, to give yourself a short-term boost. For instance, if the job you are in knocks your confidence, you can look to change it. If being on Facebook affects how you feel, you can delete it. If your weight is a problem for you, you could look for a trusted medical aesthetic doctor for a fat loss treatment, for example. If you’re bored with your hair, you can book an appointment with a hairdresser and have some changes made to it. They might just be a ‘quick fix’ or something a little short-term. But if it helps on your journey to feeling more confident, then there is nothing wrong with that.
Think About Your Body Language
Have you noticed something about the confident people that you admire? They have body language that just makes them seem more confident and positive. They look people in the eye, and they hold their head high. They don’t slouch or slump their shoulders. Confident people look confident. So if you’re not even too sure about how you stand, it could be a good idea to stand in front of the mirror and just stand. Do you slouch, stick out your hips or slump a little? Try holding your head high and rolling your shoulders back to give yourself an instant look of confidence. How you hold yourself can have a lot to do with the impression you give off to people, as well as how you act. So it is worth a try!
Set Yourself Goals
When you are achieving the goals you have set for yourself, then it can be really hard to feel down on yourself. So it is a really good practice to get into. It is a good idea to have some large goals that you want to work towards. But along the way, having some shorter term goals is a good idea too. Then you can work towards your larger end goal, without feeling like a failure if it is taking a while. Smaller, more achievable goals are the way to get to your grand goal in the end.
