How To Buy Confidence

by Wanda on May 14, 2015

Yeah, right- as if you could buy confidence! Sure, you can buy a fancy car and other status symbols, but do they really give you confidence? Okay, maybe a little, but if it’s not coming from inside you, it’s not really…real. Real confidence is something you can work on yourself and it’s not about material objects- it’s about believing in yourself. Confidenceatwork

I’m all about believing in myself, but I have to admit that I have my moments. Life can be confusing and intimidating, and a little confidence and self-esteem go a long way in navigating our way through it. But who wants to just navigate her way through life? I want to rock it! I know I can, and so can you, because we are all going to give ourselves a confidence boost. Here’s how:

  • Pay attention to your appearance. There’s no way to sugarcoat this: when you look good you feel better. Keep yourself well-groomed and well-dressed and you will not only feel better about yourself, you will also project a positive and confident self-image to others. This will go a long way.
  • Watch your posture. Stand up straight and hold you head up. Slouching will make you look like you feel unimportant and will actually hurt your body.
  • Know your strengths. You know what you’re good at, so focus on your strengths and let yourself feel good about them. Use that good feeling to take you even further.
  • Step out of your comfort zone. Yes, focus on your strengths and accomplishments, but don’t get stuck there. Try something that scares you a little bit because that is how we grow. Set small goals for yourself and acquire more and more confidence as you master new things.
  • Count your successes. Pat yourself on the back every now and then! You deserve it and don’t let yourself believe otherwise.
  • Don’t try to be perfect; try to be the best you that you can be. Perfection is unattainable, and if that’s your goal, you will always feel like a failure. Instead, figure out how you can do your best and applaud yourself when you get there.
  • Accept praise and compliments. A confident person has no use for false modesty. There’s a difference between confidence and arrogance.
  • Repeat affirmations. Adopt a positive quote that speaks to you, or make up your own, and make sure to say it everyday.

You can do this. Now go and buy yourself some confidence!
