Guest Blogger: Michael Williams
Whether you are a politician, an athlete, or a computer programmer, self-confidence is a trait you must have in order to succeed and achieve results in your field. However, some people are not born with self-confidence but build it over time. In this article, we will give you some practical methods to build your self-confidence easily and quickly.
The first step is to know your strengths. Make a list of the things you are good at, and the things you like about yourself that make you different. Read this list to yourself every day, and remind yourself that you have many wonderful traits that not many people share. Most of us simply become used to our good sides and forget that we are talented in many ways, each one in his own unique way. By reminding yourself your worth, you will start to feel better about yourself and your self-esteem will grow.
The second step is to fix your body language. 80% of the first impression you make, and the image people have about you in their mind, is not based on your words but on your non-verbal cues. Your body language, tonality, and eye contact all define how people will perceive you; so you must maintain strong and confident body language. Keep your back straight, maintain strong posture, and keep your chin up; and you will gain self confidence easily and quickly.
There is a strong mind-body link here, so just by maintaining a strong body language, your mind will start to feel more confident and you will radiate assurance.
Another step that helps you feel better about yourself is to do sports. Sport activity helps you produce endorphins that make you feel good, and you will also feel better about your body as a result. If you are a man, consider doing weight training as it increases your dominance, testosterone levels, and makes you stronger and more confident. People will perceive you as stronger and therefore you will also start to see yourself as stronger.
In conclusion, there are many ways to gain self-confidence that you can use right now and improve your life.
