Boosting your confidence can be hard, especially if you don’t know where to start. There are easy tricks that will help you feel more confident quickly and easily which will lead to a long-term confidence increase.
- Speak in a consistent speed
People with a lack of confidence typically talk very quickly or very slowly. When people talk quickly they typically do not feel they deserve to be listened to and want to be done speaking as soon as they can. Whereas people who speak very slowly feel they need to find the perfect words in order to be heard.
- Change your walk
Walk faster with your shoulders back and head lifted to feel more confident throughout the day.
- Dress nice
When you look good, you will feel good. I have a saying with my friends where we say, “look good, feel good, do good.” I have found this to be true in my own life.
- Set and accomplish small
Setting small goals for yourself, like making your bed every morning, will give you a sense of accomplishment leading you to feel better about yourself.
- Learn new skills
When you learn new skills it will help empower you and have you building your skills along with building your confidence.
- Position yourself
Where you position yourself in a room, when talking to people, etc. will help build your confidence. It can be intimidating at first but will help long-term. Be in the front seat, sit/stand directly in front of the person you’re talking with. Position yourself for confidence.
