Every day, make a tiny agreement with yourself and follow through with it. You’ll start to see yourself as a person who honours their word, even when no one’s watching. And that’s what creates true self-confidence.
Stop discounting your successes. Start affirming them instead. Don’t say “Oh, it’s nothing” or “Everyone could do that”. Treat and talk to yourself as you would to a good friend.
Develop a positive attitude and choose to get your mind off the negatives. For example, write down three things that went well each day, and three separate things that you are thankful for.
Work on your appearance. Make an effort to look good, that doesn’t always have to cost the earth. Wear bold colour bottom & light colour t-shirt/shirt/top. Invest your little time in personal hygiene & skincare. Understand the importance of a nice perfume. Eat clean & workout frequently. You know the drill. That’s gonna make you feel much more happier and confident.
Don’t be a doormat or just follow the crowd. Think about your needs and what you want from life.
Be willing to take risks or calculated risks for god’s sake. If you don’t take a risk, then nothing’s going to change. And you’ll be stuck in a rut going nowhere in life.
The secret to self-confidence isn’t to stop caring what people think, it’s to start caring about what you think. It’s to make your opinion of you more important than anyone else’s. Confidence makes us beautiful and it comes from accepting yourself. The moment you accept yourself, it makes everything better.
Each time I see myself in mirror I see a strong yet stubborn stupid Tap & then I make sure I leave this dumbass behind before moving towards tomorrow. I have no issues in accepting I am wrong at million different situations of life. Somehow those bad days helped me come in touch with my flip side. Nothing is wasted. My only pride is “I am true to myself & every single one who came in touch with me”. Yes it took me long to reach this place & I respect myself for this tiny pride/arrogance I got.
I am a thick skinned person & there are reasons behind it. My opinions are raw unfiltered & they will remain the same forever.
