Have you ever looked at someone and though, gosh, I want to be just like you? Confident people used to have me thinking that they had some kind of super power that they were born with and me being a mere mortal would never be able to stand so tall and walk around with such a badas attitudes, truth is anyone can be a boss , all you need are the right tools and attitude and you too can unlock that I am the ish gene.
Today, I am gonna be a boss
I really believe in the power of positive thinking, if you walk around with a cloud of negativity and self doubt weighing you down, you are bound to project those feelings to the world. No one is on 100 all the time and of course we have times where we just want to stick our head in the ground and hide away but realistically where is that going to get you? You have to be your own hype man, your own cheerleader. When you wake up and make the world most instagramable avocado toast, take a moment and pat yourself on the back. There is no one like you in this world therefore there is no one who can do the things you do. Play that song that always makes you feel awesome, pop your headphones on and go out into the world with that mindset.
If at first you don’t succeed, dust your self off and try again
Failing at something or being rejected is the worst, you feel crap and most of the time you just wanna crawl into a whole and scold yourself for evening trying. It’s understandable but the difference between you and Amy the boss ass B that you love to hate because she gets the things you want, is that she probably doesn’t give up when things don’t work out. If you have a goal and you are set on reaching that goal, you should expect that things will not be easy, set backs should be a part of the plan, what you should do is learn from the experience and adapt your approach or technique and give it another shot. You aren’t here to sit on the sidelines watching others score and make moves, you are Lionel messi or Cristiano Ronaldo, you’re gonna keep taking shots until you score, it may take a while but eventually you will get your goals.
Treat yo’ self…to a new wardrobe
Okay maybe not a wardrobe but a couple of outfits or two that won’t break the bank. This one is simple, when we look our best it makes us feel great, when you are wearing a nice outfit no body can tell you that you aren’t the bee’s knees. The world is superficial on a level, it’s just the way things are, when you look like a 10 and feel like a 10, honey everyone is going to see and treat you as such and that will give you a little boost.
Sometimes we are our own worst enemy, Loving who you are as a person is going to make you glow from within, that in itself is one of the biggest sources of self confidence. It’s hard to look past the negative thoughts that we may have of ourselves, the most productive thing to do is to analyse what you are unhappy with and work on fixing it , if it’s something that’s out of your control maybe work on accepting it. You may not like yourself all the time but you should love who you are, if you don’t appreciate the amazingness that is you, then no one will.
So those are my best tips to help you become more confident, in all honesty these tips have helped me a lot. Confidence is something that you’ll probably continuously build on through life, but like most things, the more you work on it the better you will be at it. You can do anything you put your mind to 🙂
