Self confidence can be your friend or foe depending on how you look it in the eye and conquer any fears of it you may have about it. The easiest way to feel more self confident is to make a few simple changes that can have a huge impact on your outlook about yourself.
Wear clothes that fit and flatter your figure
This may sound super simple, but how many times do you wear something that no longer fits or flatters you? Stop worrying about the number on the tag and get real with what looks best on you. Clothing that doesn’t fit you properly will have you feeling insecure before you even step out of the door.
Wearing things that enhance your shape gives you an instant boost to your mental attitude and helps you know you can handle anything that comes your way.
Seriously! No one wants to talk to the woman who walks in with a chip on her shoulder or who has an attitude. You guys know who we are talking about here. Smiling more is free and lets everyone know you are confident in who you are. Your smile is one of the first things people notice about your appearance and can open more doors for you than you can imagine.
Whether you are on a first date or at an awkward business social, smile more and watch them melt in your hand.
Accessories are gold
This simple trick is often overlooked. Earrings, hats, scarves, and jewelry are some of the most valuable items you can own. How often can you dress up a pair of leggings and a tee shirt with some gorgeous hoop earrings and a baseball cap? It can change your entire look right? A long necklace can make you look taller and can take an outfit from boring to chic.
Don’t be afraid to mix up pieces you love.
Look people in the eye
Eye contact is one thing that exudes self confidence. It lets people know that you are sure of yourself, you are not afraid, and you are listening. If you are always looking down or away while someone is speaking to you, it makes you appear uninterested or insecure.
The best part about eye contact is that even though it may be uncomfortable at first, you can fake it till you make it. While you are staring someone in the eye, you can still be thinking anything you want to yourself and they don’t know it! LOL
All they know is that you are playing a power move while they believe they have your undivided attention. Over time, you can get more comfortable with eye contact, just practice it. It will become second nature to you soon.
