Confidence is something that gives us power to rule our life in direction that we want.
How many times you passed on the opportunity simply because you thought you are not good enough?
Sadly many of us lack self-confidence and value.
Try my top 5 tips on how to boost confidence:
Self-care and self-confidence go hand in hand. Try to do more exercise, sleep well and eat healthy to feel good about yourself and drop off the guilt you might be feeling because you skipped your pilates way too often this year.
Start with small steps, confidence can only be built if you succeed, and you are more likely to succeed if you set achievable goals and increase their complexity over time. If you want to do more exercises start with 5 mins walk every second day, then increase 5 mins to 10 mins and every second day to every day and so on.
Dress for success. What we wear and how we look influences our confidence. Get a new blouse to attend important meeting. Go to salon and change your hairstyle. Use professional makeup services to achieve your full potential. Or even as small as getting a new lipstick can be helpful.
Change image of yourself. If you lack confidence because you don't like your image either in photos or in the mirror, try to change that. Booking professional photoshoot is one way to create your perfect image that will be preserved for a lifetime. With professional makeup and hair, and photographer's posing guidance and flattering lighting you can create an image of a woman you've always wanted to be. You can always look back at your images where you look confident and remember this feeling when you allowed yourself to be pampered and become the best version of yourself. And soon you will feel it inside. Praise yourself more often, be kind to yourself.
Leave your comfort zone. If you are afraid of presentations, get a chance to run a presentation. Confront your fear and focus on skills of presenting, rather than on fear of embarrassment. Photoshoot also allows you to step out of your comfort zone and become a model for a day. We can only grow when we are outside of our comfort zone.
I hope these tips on how to boost confidence are helpful, of course, there is a huge work to be put into becoming confident, but we've got to start somewhere, right?
