confident people

Confident people, do you know what the habits of these people are? Do you want to grow more confident? Maybe you want to improve your career, relationships, or become more self-reliant. Maybe you want to change something that is vital to your happiness and life. Or maybe you want to reach your full potential or get that job.

You’ve read dozens of articles and examples, watched hundreds of self-help videos, and stayed up at night thinking you’re not good enough and still have a hard time being confident. You aren’t a confident speaker or have a hard time with word articulation and pronunciation and so on.

You know there is something in your life that needs to change. The problem is that you don’t know where to start.

Lack of confidence is something that many of us experience often. I’ve learned that the best way to grow confident is by looking at the habits of successful people and applying those habits to oneself. It’s an ability that can be achieved if you put your mind into it.

I will share with you a collection of habits to improve your confidence and eliminate the negative mindset that is preventing you from living a better life. Each of these insights has helped me enhance some aspect of my life, and I have no doubt that they will do the same for you as well. Maybe you will follow these examples and become more self assured or confident. You will reach your success and confidently share your achievments with your friends and family.

Confident people are optimistic

It is challenging to be confident and look cool if you are constantly anxious about events outside your control. Self confidence doesn’t come easily and there is no correct way of getting it. Maybe that’s what Marcus Aurelius meant when he said:

You have power over your mind – not outside events. Realise this, and you will find strength.

Instead of worrying about events beyond your control, the best solution would be to focus on your reaction to them. For instance, I’ve learned that when you’re kind and sympathetic to everyone, you don’t have to worry about other people’s negative thoughts.

So, ignore everything that is outside of your control if you want to feel absolutely more self confident as a person. Because any feelings of anxiety about the future will vanish when you are optimistic and bold about the things you can change rather than worrying about the things you cannot.

Take pride in their appearance

It’s crucial to keep in mind that until you learn how to feel good about yourself, other people won’t see you as self confident.

Start by considering some ways to take more pride in your appearance and figuring out how to incorporate them into your life if you want to change it. Showing confidence with your clothes is a must. Whether you like it or not, the first thing someone will notice about you is your appearance. So, take pride in it and be bold. Wear confidently and be excessively bold when the situation requires it. Build complete trust in people by taking pride in oneself.

Curtis Jackson put it very well when he said,

Your opinion of yourself becomes your reality. If you have all these doubts, then no one will believe in you and everything will go wrong. If you think the opposite, the opposite will happen. It’s that simple.

Don’t judge other people

One of the most important lessons in life is that we frequently judge others because we judge ourselves. I learned to stop judging myself and other people for things outside of my control thanks to Eckhart Tolle:

The moment that judgement stops through acceptance of what it is, you are free of the mind. You have made room for love, for joy, for peace.

So, if you want to improve your confidence, let go of external judgement and events outside of your control. Epictetus once stated:

There is only one way to happiness, and that is to cease worrying about things which are beyond the power of our will.

Recognize the importance of body language

I believed for a very long time that body language was impossible to control. During a conversation, I was never sure what to do with my hands. I came to the realisation that the majority of communication is non-verbal. I worked on my body language because I knew it would help me engage in more meaningful conversations with everyone I met. It gave me more assurance of myself.

Start with easy techniques like remaining composed and relaxed, maintaining eye contact, and expressing interest in what the other person is saying with your facial expressions. When you make a genuine effort to improve the quality of your conversations with your body language, the other person will a more positive response.

Step out of their comfort zone

Stepping outside of your comfort zone is hard but it’s a great way to build confidence. It is easier to gain confidence when you are willing to face challenges and your greatest fears in a confident manner.

So if you’re looking to become more self confident, stepping outside of your comfort zone, improve your abilities and be a positive person seems like a good start. Test your skills and listen to what someone more confident than you suggests. Musician, Jimmy Cox said,

Life will only change when you become more committed to your dreams than you are to your comfort zone.

So, every day, ask yourself, “What action do I need to take now to step out of my comfort zone and fulfil my potential and become more confident?
