If someone asks you “what kind of woman do you want to be?”, I bet that your answer might start with “confident”.
The quality of being certain of your abilities or of having trust in people, plans, or the future.
To be successful is necessary to be confident and this is how you can become confident and achieve anything you’d like to.
Ego vs Confidence
When someone says you’re pretty, you’re beautiful you have a “confidence boost” and suddenly feel confident.
Be careful, this is not what confidence is about, this is just some “food” for your ego.Confidence it’s not about the way you look on the outside (indeed there are some not-so-pretty women that act like they are the most beautiful women on earth, and their confidence makes them “charming”.
Focus on the inside, what are your talents? What are your skills? What are you knowledgeable about? Focus on this and be proud of yourself.
How would you talk if you were confident? How would you walk?
Think about that and start faking it, till you become it!
Change the way you think of yourself through affirmations.
We tend to believe what we tell ourselves constantly, so why not give it a try?
Say them OUT LOUD because your brain needs to listen to your voice saying that you are amazing, you are talented and you are going to make it!
I know, seems weird, but this is part of “faking it”. Smile when you don’t feel like it but I assure you that it’s going to have a great effect on yourself and the others who you’re talking to.
Another tip that’s about appearance is:
Maintain eye contact
If you’re shy and insecure you most likely look everywhere else but the eyes of the person you’re talking to.
To make it easier think of it as a game “the last to look away wins!”, it sounds doable, right?
Don’t compare yourself to others
This one seems very tough, I know it, but focus on your wins, on your uniqueness because nobody’s like you, love yourself!
