Contrary to popular belief, confidence is not something you’re born with - it’s something you acquire as you go through life’s experiences. Very often, unexpected situations challenge our level of confidence, but with just a little bit of faith, an optimistic mindset and a sturdy willpower, we can accomplish just about anything! All we have to do is believe in ourselves. So, if you want to keep that fiery attitude alive, here are 8 tips to help you become a more confident version of yourself!



1. Believe In Yourself


No matter what you do in life, not everyone will wish well for you. Some people might even say things to intentionally bring you down. THAT is when you play it cool. You don’t need to reason with them; you just have to be true to yourself and ignore what you think is irrelevant. The moment you believe in yourself, others will too.

2. List Out Your Positives And Negatives


This list is not supposed to be for anyone but you. It’s just as simple as writing down your positives and negatives in different columns on a piece of paper. Now, refer to these positives every time you think you need a pepping-up, and those negatives - now that you know what they are, set goals to work on them bit by bit. Try it - it always works!

3. Try Stepping Out Of Your Comfort Zone


Because you won’t know what you’re capable of till you try! Don’t be afraid of the unknown - embrace it with arms wide open. Change is beautiful, and it’s the only thing that’s constant. Whether or not you emerge victorious, it’s the experience that contributes to you being a more confident person. Just remember to NEVER underestimate your own capabilities!

4. Love Your Imperfections


You cannot love another human being till the time you learn to love yourself. And this love also means accepting imperfections - everyone has them; they are what make us human! Accept who you are, know your strengths and acknowledge your weaknesses. Once you become comfortable with who you are, nothing, and we mean NOTHING, can bring you down!
