7 Ways to lead a more Confident Life
It is never too late to go after your dreams and do all the things you want to do.
“Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ― I’m possible.” — Audrey Hepburn
If you want to feel more confident about life, if you want to have the courage to go after your wildest dreams, here are seven things that can help.
1.) Learn to trust your inner voice.
When you have to make decisions in life, try your best to take guidance from your inner voice. This voice is always positive and helps you to feel strong because it knows your true potential and what you are truly capable of. The mind, on the other hand, can fill you with fear and doubt.
2.) Try something new.
Confidence does not come from perfection, it comes from simply trying and being ok with whatever the outcome is. To really feel confident, you have to keep challenging yourself to new things and learn new things.
3.) Don’t be afraid to fail.
Failure is not a bad thing. Failure is a message that you need to try again but in a different way. It may also be wise to remember that failure is inevitable at some point. Embrace your failures as learning opportunities and a chance to try again.
4.) Practice power poses.
Standing tall and strong in a power pose with your chest out and your hands on your hips, has been shown to help naturally boost your feelings of confidence and optimism. Try these power poses for just a few minutes each day and notice just how much more confident you feel.
5.) Celebrate your achievements.
When you achieve a goal, give yourself permission to celebrate. The more you support yourself and become your greatest advocate, the more confident you will feel through life and in pursuing your dreams.
6.) Believe in yourself.
As Henry Ford once said, “Whether you think you can, or think you can’t ― you are right.” When you believe in yourself it makes it much easier to go after what you want, and it can also help you to succeed.
7.) Don’t be in competition with others.
Confident people know that there really is no such thing as competition with others. It is far more valuable to go after goals and achieve things for your own personal development, rather than to prove you are better that someone else.
