Confidence. Either you have it or you don’t. But even if you don’t feel confident yet, there are ways you can look it until you master the art.
You know what they say. Practice makes perfect. Even if right now you feel shy as a wall flower, you can tap your kick-ass inner confidence any time.
You can exude true confidence and wear it like a coat of arms.
Here are some ways to wear self confidence right.
1. Upright Posture
- People who are confident usually walk upright, not slouched over
- Walk with your shoulders back and head up
2. Love Yourself and Others
It’s about how you treat yourself and the people around you.
Are you generally bitching and gossiping about others? Sometimes, it is the people who are the most insecure who make the most noise about other people.
When you are generally good at what you do, you don’t have to try to put others down to make yourself look better. It’s the ones who are already succeeding that may have the strength to lift others up.
3. Attitude Is Everything
When you greet people, do you greet them with a smile or a scowl? You only get one chance to make a first impression, so make it count.
During a live conversation with someone, even if you feel distracted and feel like looking around while they are talking, or even if you feel super shy and are avoiding eye contact. Do your best to look them in the eye.
Make the person you are talking with feel appreciated, not ignored.
4.Use A Firm Handshake
A limp handshake certainly does not exude confidence. So when you meet someone or are doing a business transaction, grasp their hand firmly.
This says, I am confident in who I am and I know what I bring to the table.
Most of all, be you – and do it
