Self-confident people are admired by others and inspire confidence in others.
They face their fears head-on and tend to be risk-takers.
Those who strongly believe in themselves and in their ability to accomplish a particular challenge are much more likely to have success.
So our self-confidence is quite important as it is directly related to what actions we are willing to take in our life.
Also, the strength or weakness of our self-confidence will likely determine the success when we do take action.
How to Supercharge Your Self Confidence
1. Allow vulnerability to supercharge your confidence
Many of us fear being judged which is why we’re anxious in some situations and not others.
Remind yourself of your great qualities and be proud of who you are.
And know you are not alone, so many people feel exactly the same way you do, even those who appear to be the most confident, deep down, everyone has insecurities.
Allow yourself to let others see the real you. Practice this with those you are close to and know you can trust.
Give yourself time to develop the habit of being open and authentic and you might come to realize how much closer you feel in these relationships.
This leads to increased self-confidence and is a positive way to feel confident in social interactions.
So, start to focus on being as genuine and authentic as possible and as you increase your self confidence in this way you’ll discover that these qualities are the ones that others appreciate most about you.
2. Use Empowered Body Language
It might not seem like much, but changing your body language, the way you speak and putting a little effort into your appearance can go a long way.
Try putting your shoulders back, adopting a straight back and lifting your chin a little next time you are walking.
Employ positive body language, such as open gestures, smiling, and soft features.
Deepen your voice and speak from your heart space and the middle of your chest, vs a higher pitch from your throat.
You’ll be surprised at the effects!
3. Redefine your “go to” memories from failures to successes
Look for situations in your past that reflect back to your most confident successful self.
Dwell less on past situations that continue to trigger pain in your life today and train your mind to look for the wonderful.
Out brain is like a rubber band.
For example, if you don’t feel confident speaking in public, or speaking your mind, because of a time you failed, and you constantly revisit your failure memory in your mind, you aren’t giving yourself a chance to create a new story and new memory.
Give yourself a blank slate and remember a time, instead, when you succeeded at doing something challenging.
Then channel the energy of your success memory into this moment and use it when facing your new opportunity today.
Now over to you.
