Confidence is something that can affect our lives. We either have oodles of it and have a positive life. Or we can feel less confident in our abilities which causes us not to do the things we want. Your confidence can be affected by the clothes you wear, the people you spend time with or even the seasons.
Low confidence can stop us from going for our dreams through fear of failing. It can stop us from feeling good about ourselves when there is nothing to feel bad about.
You don’t have to be overconfident to get ahead. But just have enough confidence and self-belief in yourself and watch how things can change. So I thought I would share with you five ways to get more confident in yourself
Think about your self-image
What you think about yourself has a big impact on your self-confidence. So if you are unhappy with the way you look or act then the only way to move forward is to accept it or change it.
Self-image can be anything from making more of an effort with yourself, down to changing things that cause low self-esteem. Often we find ourselves looking at our image and not being happy with it, maybe starting a family has affected things like your breasts, where a breast lift could help.
With things like weight, it can be as easy as implementing a lifestyle change or focusing on what you are eating. You just have to decide to make the change. However, it is just as important to accept your body and be thankful and grateful for what you do have.
Could you consider changing your clothing to find something you feel better in? Women’s clothing comes in all shapes and styles so you are sure to find something you love and feel good in.
Change your mindset into something more positive
Your mindset can play a big part in how confident you feel in your ability to do things. Someone who feels confident about themselves will do better than someone who thinks they are destined to fail. Which is a negative thought process.
It can feel like a big hurdle to tackle but changing your mindset is easier than you think. It’s all about making little changes like buying clothes you love even if they are a little out of your comfort zone and turning every thought into a positive one. You will find that after a while you automatically do it.
Accept that what you see isn’t what everyone else sees
What you see when you look in the mirror is probably not what the person next to you sees. Take comfort in that thought. You will always be super critical of your looks.
From how you smile right down to the wrinkles or frown lines, that appear. But what you hone in won’t have even occurred to the person looking at you.
Accept that and be confident in it. If you are confident in what you are wearing because you have a dress or jewellery you love then you will smile more and look better too!
Know your strengths and step out of your comfort zone
Sometimes taking some steps out of your comfort zones and taking risks can be all you need to feel more confident in your ability. It can feel like a huge challenge initially, especially when you feel low on confidence.
The confidence you can feel when you succeed and overcome the challenges can make such a huge difference. Stop hiding away in black and step out of your comfort zone. Have a look at dresses for women of all styles and lengths, find something you love and try it on and see what you think?
Why not take a friend shopping with you for clothes and make-up. they may look at things a little different to you and help you choose things that look lovely which you may have otherwise not considered!
I hope these tips help you get more confident.
