‘’Confidence is not, ‘They will like me’. Confidence instead is, ‘I’ll be fine if they don’t’. ‘’.”
Confidence is more of the inside than the outside; it’s about how you feel about yourself and not constantly worrying and caring about what anyone else thinks or does. It’s knowing that you are a flawed human, not perfect but cool in your own way. It’s about having a healthy positive attitude and taking control of your life and going after your goals and dreams with strong will power and belief that you can do it.
How to be confident?
Take Good Care of Yourself
Taking good care of yourself can uplift your spirit, make you feel strong, and boost your confidence all at the same time. You don’t have to break the bank to look great, as long as you’re clean, feel good and comfortable with what you wear and how you look, you are set for confidence.
Surround Yourself with Positive People
Spend more time with people you feel make You Stay You, people that laugh at your jokes and less or zero time with those that constantly tear you down or undermine who you are.
Life becomes easier and more beautiful when you love and embrace who you are. When you start loving yourself, people can kind of pick on that; they see self-esteem, they see confidence, they see positivity, and naturally, people will seek to be around you.
Be Positive and Believe in Yourself
“Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.” Gandhi
Kill and erase those negative thinking and focus on your qualities. Always believe in yourself. Be proud of who and what you are and never compare yourself to others. You never really know what’s going on in people’s lives. People choose (especially on social media), to show what they want others to see just to get approval. They live their lives for other people’s happiness in lieu of their own.
Learn a New Skill
Don’t stand still waiting for the right, convenient, or perfect time to learn something new. Now is the perfect time. It’s a drag to leave anything that can be done today for tomorrow. Embrace your interest now by learning something you been thinking and dreaming of doing for a long time. It could be a new language, any sport, painting, etc. Don’t get discouraged if you aren’t seeing immediate positive results. As long as you keep going, you will not only get better but grow in confidence as well.
You will feel better about yourself when you take time out to brighten someone else’s day. There are a few ways you can do this. Giving someone else a compliment, doing an unannounced deal, like holding and opening the door for someone, especially those that are older and physically frail can push your confidence through the roof; and if someone brightens your day with any good deal, show your gratitude with a smile and say thank you.
Always have the courage to start over again.
“Show me a man who has never failed, and I will see a man who has never attempted anything.”
“The only man who never makes a mistake is the man who never does anything”
Don’t think of your mistakes and failures as negatives but rather as learning opportunities. The excitement you feel when you trust that someday your chance will come is beyond refreshing and rewarding
