Keep your head up when you’re walking—the floor will always be there. Smile and don’t be afraid of standing with your best posture as possible.
Remind yourself that you’re strong, that you’re confident, and that you’re pretty darn awesome. Convince yourself that you know what you’re doing. You don’t need anyone else to tell you what you already know—it’s up to you to recognize and embrace what you have.
Every time you try to pick up a new hobby or you get nervous for some sort of presentation or performance or anything, just tell yourself “I’ve been doing this all of my life,” even if it’s your first time. Basically, convince yourself that you have the strength and that you can do anything you set your mind to.
“Tell a man he is brave, and you help him to become so.”
Be the one to tell yourself that you are confident and you will realize that you are more confident than you think.
What helped me gain my confidence the most… was helping others. If I can help someone else become more confident, then it boosts my confidence as well.
So find someone that needs your help and take the time to make them smile. Even one smile from yourself to another goes a long way. Even if you don’t realize it, everyone is a sort of role model to someone else, regardless of whether someone is demonstrating the right thing to do or not. Despite whether someone completely worships another or if there’s only a slight admiration, at least looks up to you. Recognize that you have a purpose—that you can help spark confidence within someone else, and you will become confident with yourself.
