People who show confidence really seem to have it made. They seize more rewarding careers, keep good relationships, and just seem to do everything with more style than the rest of us.
So what’s their self-confidence’s secret? There isn’t one. Self-confidence is a skill and habit that anyone can learn to develop. And although people who are raised in an encouraging environment with confident role models have a head start in self-confidence development, we all can learn to become more confident at any age.
Try these simple tips for practicing and increasing your confidence levels:
Dare to fail. Anybody who’s out there bravely performing is going to fail repeatedly. If you’re not failing, you’re not trying. So don’t take failure too hard or
too personally. Just learn to roll with it and use its lessons to keep improving.
Dress for success. You don’t have to be beautiful to be confident. Make the most of your own unique physical characters and weaken your disadvantages so that you know you’re giving out your best image.
Listen to be yourself. You’re the only person who knows what’s right for you. Don’t put others’ opinions above your own inner voice.
Build a confident vocabulary. Stop putting yourself down and give up continually blaming your tiny weaknesses. Learn to show up your strong points and the world will learn to see and celebrate them with you.
Pass on praise. Praise others for their virtues and strengths. This practice will not decrease your confidence, but help increase it.
