Act confident and no one will question you.
It’s a mantra which many people use every single day to help them take charge of their lives and make an impression on the world. Confidence is a huge part of life and it is something which you need in order to live your life to the fullest. If you are a confident soul there is so much you can achieve in life, and today we are going to have a chat about the things you can do to make yourself more confident this year.
This is a contributed post. Please refer to my disclosure for more information.
Dive right in
Sometimes the best way to tackle and issue is head on, and you might need to get it if your comfort zone in order to be the person you need to be. Think about saying yes to more opportunities and be sure to take life by the balls every single day. If you dive right in and do these things it will stop you from overthinking and this can make your life so much better.
Practice with family
If you feel as if you want to be confident enough to speak to strangers and make a mark on the world you’ll need to practice and get good at it. Finding the confidence to talk with your family and play out scenarios can make it all seem much less scary when the time really does come to take action and make a change. If you practice interview skills with your family for example you’ll be much less scared when you do finally come face to face with a potential employer. It’s all about trying and trying again until you are able to face these challenges.
Sometimes a good way to feel more confident in yourself as a person is to connect with people online and find friendship from people all over the world. This is particularly great for introverted souls who cannot speak face to face, because you have the protection of a computer screen to keep you away from peoples eyes. Starting a blog or chatting to people online can be an awesome way to feel self worth and it can do a lot for your self esteem.
Go to a talk
If you find that you are at a bit of a loose end and you don’t know where best to find some confidence, going to motivational speakers and listening to their words can be a great way to be inspired. Motivational speakers can help you to see your true worth and this can allow you to go out there and feel a bigger sense of purpose in the world. You can feel much more pride in yourself and you’ll be so much more confident as a result.
Start a conversation
One of the hardest things to do when you don’t have any confidence is to start a conversation with someone and keep it going. Talking to others doesn’t have to be scary and if you can think of a good opening line for a conversation you can really find your feet and realise your true confidence. Practice with friends and family first and then you’ll be able to move on to speaking to an acquaintance or Work college with no issues.
Be assertive at work
Work is the bane of adult life and it is unfortunately something we all have to do each day to make money for those we love. However if you are not confident in the workplace this can really take a toll on you and it can lead to you being taken advantage of by your management and other colleagues. If there is one place you need to be more confident it is at work, and you need to be more assertive and ask for a pay rise now and again, tell people where they are going wrong and fight for hours to suit you. This will make your life so much better and it will earn you the respect of people too.
Know what you want
Life is something which you need to take control of, because you deserve to have everything you want in your life and you deserve to be happy. It is important if you are going to be a happy and confident soul that you take the time to get to know what you want out of life. It could be that you want a great job, you want to travel, or you want to settle down. But think about what you want and make sure you take steps to make it happen.
