We all have days where we feel more confident than others. But how do we stay consistently confident? Days where we are down in the dumps, or feeling confused and numb.. How do we break these moods and keep our heads high? I mean we are only human and can't help but to have bad days.. But I am going to give 5 helpful tips to improve the confidence instilled with you and your day-to-day life.
1. STAY POSITIVE
I'm a pretty positive person most of the time but I do have my days too of course.. What really helps me is to think how blessed I am with everything I have. And I'm not really talking about materialistic things, but our family, being healthy, the good friends around us, our wonderful memories, our house, food, transportation, etc.. These things are common sense, but we tend to forget the most IMPORTANT things right in front of us in our lives that truly matter. So when I start to feel down about something, I think of how lucky I am and it totally changes my mood.
Also, one of the BIGGEST tips of advice is, YOU are WHAT you expose yourself to. You are WHAT you hang around. If you hang with smokers and complainers, then the odds of you becoming one of them is likely.. If you expose yourself around people who are successful and positive people, then you'll most likely become this way too! It's as simple as that!
2. COMPLIMENT YOURSELF & OTHERS
Us girls, tend to be a little harder on ourselves and put pressure on everything we do... But I think it's CRUCIAL that we compliment one another and even ourselves. When I see a girl with a cute dress I comment something to her about it! Girl's take pride and so it's nice to hear it from other fellow females. I feel happy knowing I made someone smile, and you'll feel the same way! You might make someone's day. :-)
Also, tell yourself all the good you've done so far in your life.. Yes the past too! My mom used to tell me, look in the mirror every morning and think of at least 5 things you LIKE about yourself. And then 5 things you want to change and grow from. We as people are always changing. Each year we mature and learn.
Smiling is the best thing EVER! We all feel better laughing and smiling! A smile will switch your bad mood into a good mood in no time! Turn that frown upside down. :-)
4. HAVE YOUR OWN STYLE
A lot of people today feel like they need to dress like everyone else and wear what's in magazines to impress.. But everyone has their own unique way of expressing themselves. Fashion can honestly be whatever you want it to be. Everyone has their own thoughts and different opinions, but what about what YOU think? You need to strut down that street sidewalk in whatever your CONFIDENTLY wearing! You are fashion, make your own style and make them look.
This is the last and MOST important piece of advice I can give. Believe in YOU. I know you've probably heard that over a million times.. But coming from someone who knows and understands a little on this, I can promise you BELIEVING is key to success, to happiness, love, a long happy life - there's no reason to NOT believe?.. Believe in what you want and CAN do. If you have dreams and desires well GO FOR THEM! YOU LIVE ONCE! Make your life full of happiness and success. Believe you are amazing, because you truly are!
I wish you all the best!
