Did you know that people with higher levels of confidence are more likely to have fulfilling relationships, more likely to work in their dream jobs, and more likely to live in a happy and positive state of self-worth?
It's true! And, the best part about it is the more positive you are, the more you can effortlessly attract what you truly desire.
If you’re feeling like you’ve lost your confidence, never fear - I have a few quick tips to get you back on track that will help instantly boost your confidence and raise your vibration. All I ask is really visualize each of the tips below so you can manifest your desires quickly and efficiently!
Confidence Building Tip #1: Dress For Success
When it comes to building confidence, your clothing is a major factor in how you feel about yourself and how others perceive you. Of course, looks aren't everything, but how you dress has a much more important role on your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors than you may realize. The clothes we wear tell a story - not only to strangers but also to ourselves.
If you don't feel confident in what you're wearing, you're more likely to feel self-conscious and unassured when interacting with those around you. You may even begin thinking judgmental thoughts about yourself.
One way to eliminate any negative self-chatter about yourself is to always put your best foot forward. Wear outfits that flatter your body, style your hair so that it frames your face, and be sure to put a smile on whenever you step out into the world.
The way you dress truly does affect your attitude and self-confidence so remember to choose clothing that makes you FEEL good as well as making you look good.
When you do this, you'll be glowing with confidence and be less likely to project your-self conscious thoughts about yourself onto others. Removing some of the mental noise makes it much easier to honestly interact with others.
Confidence Building Tip #2: Strike Up Conversation
One of the best ways to build self-esteem and confidence is to make a habit of talking to strangers. Approaching a total stranger to strike up a conversation takes a bit of courage and can be intimidating but the benefits are well worth it. You can massively improve your life when you're able to talk to people easily, freely, and engage them in conversation.
And really, the hardest part of talking to strangers is just getting started! Once you make a habit of stepping out of your comfort zone to speak with people you're unfamiliar with - it soon becomes natural and smooth, and you'll eventually enjoy these interactions.
The fear of rejection holds many people back from initiating conversation with strangers but the key to this is to not take it personally. At least 95% of the time their negativity has NOTHING to do with you, so just let it roll of your back!
With a little bit of practice, meeting new people will become second nature. Start small! Ask for directions from a stranger or engage in small talk with the grocery check-out girl. You might just have it in you to brighten someone's day. And along the way, you'll build your self-confidence and make a few friends :)
Confidence Building Tip #3: Step Outside Your Bubble
Once you start getting comfortable with striking up a conversation with a stranger, try taking it a step further.
If you're like most people, you probably have a daily routine, where you interact with a very limited number of people, and it's usually the same people each day.
Wandering out of that routine can be difficult and even scary. But believe me when I say that one of the easiest ways to build confidence, is to go outside your comfort zone.
Try something you've never done before, like salsa dancing or a group fitness class. You'll meet new people, establish new connections and you'll even get to learn a little something about yourself along the way :)
