How To Build Self Confidence
Boost your Self-Esteem with these Power Tips
Have you always been concerned about how you carry yourself? Has it always been a big problem to you that you have low self-confidence? Do you always wish to feel better about yourself so that you will have more friends, or perhaps do better in your career?
If you answer yes to any of these questions, read on to the power tips below to find out how you can boost your self-esteem with little or no difficulty.
1. Dress to Impress
They say clothes don't make a person, but you have to admit the way you dress does have an effect on how you feel about yourself. How often has it happened that you came to a social event only to find out that you are over or underdressed and you just want the ground to open up and swallow you whole? The rest of the night you feel self conscious just because you are not dressed up properly. For this reason, it is imperative that you invest on your clothes as this is the first step towards improvement of your self-confidence. Be aware of the latest styles, find out what clothes suit you and flatter you, and invest some money on good quality clothes that would make you look and feel good.
2. Stand up Straight and Walk Faster
People who are confident have upright postures and they walk much faster than those who do not. Walking faster will not only make you look more confident, it will make you look important, as if you are in a rush because you are in demand and you have so many things to do. Be sure to have an upright posture too. Slumped shoulders and lethargic movements indicate poor self esteem. Practice good posture to display more confidence. Doing both of these will make you feel empowered.
3. Motivate Yourself
It is possible that your lack of self confidence is rooted from your lack of self motivation. If you are not motivated to excel, to do good in life, to succeed, and so on, you probably also won’t have the confidence that it takes to do so. But if you are determined to bring yourself to a much better place where you currently are now, you will be more confident about how you feel about yourself. It would be advisable to listen to motivational speeches that encourage confidence to help you more effectively on this matter.
5. Be More Optimistic
Being more positive in life will also instantly give you a positive boost. When your head is always filled with negative thoughts such as how you are incapable, incompetent, or just plain stupid, of course, you won’t have the confidence to face the world. But if you believe in yourself that you are smart, you're talented, and you can accomplish anything you set your mind into, being confident would follow naturally.
Use these power tips to ensure that you will have the confidence that you need to conquer whatever it is that you are dreaming of.
