Visualise yourself as you want to be
Picture yourself in an image that you are proud of in your own mind. When struggling with self-confidence we have a poor perception of ourselves that is mostly inaccurate.
Try visualising the ideal version of yourself, achieving your goals.
Do one thing every day that scares you
It may be a cliché, but clichés are clichés for a reason!
A lack of self-confidence can often lead to us finding ways around conversation or interaction, tempted by the possibilities of a text or an email in which we don’t have to look, listen, or reveal ourselves.
The best way to overcome fear is to face it by doing something that scares you every day and gaining confidence from these experiences. So, get out of your comfort zone and face your fears.
Change your body language and image
Posture, a smile on your face, making eye contact and speech all influence the way others perceive you.
Just the simple act of pulling your shoulders back gives others the impression that you are someone who is confident.
Also, remember to look at the person you are speaking to, not at your shoes – keeping eye contact shows confidence.
Whatever is next on your ‘to achieve’ list, make sure you learn everything there is to know about your field, job, presentation etc.
If you are prepared and have the knowledge to back yourself up, your self-confidence will soar.
Stop dusting your trainers and start wearing them
Self-confidence also depends on a combination of good physical, emotional and social health.
It’s tough to feel good about yourself if you’re not happy with your physique and sometimes feel low on energy.
In addition, as part of a healthy diet and lifestyle, Berocca contains vitamins B1, B2 and B12 which can help release energy from the food you eat. This can help you feel energised and make the most of that gym membership.
Confident people inspire confidence in others, their friends, work colleagues, bosses and clients. Gaining the confidence of others is a vital way in which self-confident people find success.
