A wise philosopher from the internet once said.

“ Be confident in who you are that no one’s opinion, rejection, attitude or behavior can make you crumble”

I really have no idea who said that, but it makes sense though, let’s talk about confidence.

Some people were born confident.
Most people develop it over time.
Others have little to no confidence at all.

Now my question, why do some people have little or no confidence at all?

Is it because of the fear of what other people think about us? Or is it because of how people treat us?

There are a lot of factors to consider really, but I think it all boils down to self-perception.

Sometimes we think lowly of ourselves that it affects our emotions and these emotions can affect our confidence.  And we may not notice it but confidence plays a big role in our daily lives.

Here are helpful tips on how to boost your confidence.

1. Do Positive Self Talk.
Not all people who talk to themselves are crazy. Positive self-talk is something that a confident person does. It’s a practice wherein you convince yourself of all of the positive qualities that you have and believing things are going to be great. For example every morning, in front of the mirror, you tell yourself:
“I am beautiful/handsome, I am confident, and I claim that this day is going to be a great day and if it doesn’t turn out to be a great day, tomorrow is another day and another chance to make it better”.

 Your minds can play tricks on you, but two can play this game by convincing yourself with positive self-talk.

2. Stop doubting yourself.
If the positive self-talk didn’t work it’s probably because you are doubting yourself.  A lot of people underestimate themselves believing that they can’t do this or they can’t do that for the reason that they think they’re not good enough. They wallow in the thought of being perfect like how they want to look perfect, how they want everything to go smoothly and perfectly and so on.  Let me say this once

“Stop doubting yourself!”

Darling never ever underestimate your beauty, capabilities and other strengths, people can always improve. Doubt is the biggest killer of confidence and it is also the thief of joy. Stop giving power to your doubt and start giving power to yourself.

3. Don’t slouch and chin up.
I once read in an article how slouching can contribute to anxiety and affect a person’s sense of powerlessness. A small tweak in posture can affect a person’s body chemistry and change a person’s mood which helps in improving confidence.

4. Face your fears
Ask yourself why are you afraid of this “fear?”, what are the small ways you can do to kick those worries to the curb?

 One way is to stop worrying over the things that you have no control of. Instead of thinking that things would go wrong, start thinking “what if this turns out to be a good thing?”

 After facing that fear you’ll be surprised that things are not as bad as it seems like and it was all in your mind.

5. As the old saying goes “FAKE IT TILL YOU MAKE IT”
If you want to be confident, you have to act like you really are confident. Be proactive by finding people who can inspire you to become confident, seeking support from people you trust and practicing a positive outlook in everything that you do.  It’s cliché I know, but trust me it works.

I hope you’ll try to do these small tweaks in your habits and see the progress it can make in your confidence and daily lives.
