Confidence Tips.

1.Dress Sharp

Although clothes don’t make the man/woman, they certainly affect the way we feel about ourselves. No one is more conscious of your physical appearance than you are. When you won’t look good, it changes how you carry yourself and interact with other people. Use this to your advantage by taking care of your personal apeparance.

2.Walk Faster

One of the easiest ways to tell how a person feels about themselves is to look at how they walk. Is is slow, tired or painful? Maybe it is energetic and purposeful. People with confidence – walk quickly. They have places to go, people to see and important work to do. Walking 25% faster will make you look and feel more important.

3.Good Posture

The way a person carries themselves tells a story. People with slumped shoulders and lethargic movements display a lack of self-confidence. By practicing good posture you will automatically feel more confident. Stand up straight, keep your head up and make eye contact. You will make a positive impression on others and instantly feel more alert and empowered.

4. Gratitude

When you focus too much on what you want, the mind creates reasons why you can’t have it. This leads you to dwell on your weaknesses. The best way to avoid this is to consciously focus on gratitude. Take five minutes every day to list things you are grateful for and you will be amazed at how much you have to be grateful for.

5. Compliment people

By looking for the best in others, you indirectly bring out the best in yourself.

6. Speak Up

Many people don’t speak up because they are afraid of being judged by others. This fear is not really justified. Generally people are much more accepting then we image.
