Build that Confidence
Are you shy, awkward, and feel like the world is passing you by? Don’t worry! You can still be confident and happy without changing who you are. I am going to teach you how to build confidence in yourself.
First, you need to get into a good posture. Now, this might seem like a lot of stuff to worry about, but it’s actually pretty simple. First, take your time and think about how you stand up straight. Do you slouch? Do you have a rounded back? Or do you hold your head high? If it’s the latter, good for you! Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s move on to our next step: holding our shoulders back and keeping them down (aka: not letting them slump downwards).
In order to achieve this position of power and confidence, we must breathe correctly. Which means taking deep breaths from both sides of our lungs while keeping our stomachs flat throughout this process. That’s right—no more sucking in or puffing out like some kind of disembodied blowfish!
Now that we know what good posture looks like from all angles (literally), let’s practice some positive self-talk as another way to build confidence! Think about when was the last time someone told themselves “thank goodness I’m such an amazing person”? Chances are slim at best because no one thinks highly enough of themselves without prompting by others around them first; so start telling yourself how awesomely awesome up awesomely yours truly is instead! This will help boost those self-esteem levels even higher until they reach maximum capacity and start overflowing into other areas beyond just confidence…like happiness…and joyfulness.…and being awesomely happy while also being joyfully awesome at all times!!!
Confidence through clothing
The biggest mistake women make when it comes to dressing is believing that clothes make the woman. Nope—you do! The only thing that matters is what you’re wearing, but if you’re going to be confident, then your clothes need to fit right and be appropriate for the situation.
It’s all about knowing your body type and finding the right cut for your figure. For example, if you have a large chest but small hips (or vice versa), then look for clothing with more room in one area than another so that everything looks proportional on your body. If you have an hourglass shape or are tall and slender (like me), then go for dresses or skirts with a fitted waistline that flares out at the hemline; this will draw attention downward instead of making people focus on where it’s meant to be: up top*.
If you’re looking for professional outfits specifically tailored toward certain industries like banking or law enforcement (and who isn’t?), check out sites like Career Gear’s “Clothes That Fit” section before heading out shopping.* They’ll help guide what types of things work best depending on where in life path lead me next…
Confidence through the eyes
- Look people in the eye when you are talking to them. You will be surprised at how much more confident you feel when you do this.
- Wearing glasses helps with confidence and self-esteem too!
- Looking at yourself in the mirror is another way that can help build your confidence, as well as self-esteem.
No need for perfectionism
We all know that perfectionism is a bad thing. It can be stifling, it can take you out of the present moment, and it can make you feel like a failure if you don’t meet your own high expectations.
But here’s the thing: no one is perfect. And that’s okay! You don’t have to be perfect to be confident. In fact, striving for perfectionism may actually rob you of your confidence because it will always leave room for self-doubt and second-guessing yourself in your pursuit of “better” results.
So instead of setting unattainable goals (that will probably only result in more anxiety), try accepting yourself exactly as you are right now—and build on that foundation with positive daily affirmations like “I’m capable” or “I am enough.” You’ll start building up a better sense of self-worth without putting any pressure on yourself—and before long, feeling confident will become second nature!
Self-esteem doesn’t need to take a lot of time or money
Here’s the truth: self-esteem has nothing to do with how you look and everything to do with how you feel. If you want to be confident, then start by building confidence in yourself, not your appearance.
Confidence is not about looking good; confidence comes from feeling good, inside and out. So stop spending so much time on your appearance, and focus instead on developing a strong sense of self-worth and personal satisfaction.
As you can see, it’s important to have confidence in yourself. But this isn’t always easy. We all have moments when we doubt ourselves and our abilities, especially if we’re new to something or aren’t doing well at it. The key is to recognize those feelings for what they are: temporary. Once you do that, you’ll be able to address them head-on and move past them quickly so that your self-esteem doesn’t suffer from those feelings any more than necessary!
