Confidence is a skill

Yes, confidence comes naturally, but only to some. Confidence is a skill, and just like any other skill, you have the power to master it and I hope with this blog post that you will do just that.

Definition of confidence:

a feeling of self-assurance arising from an appreciation of one’s own abilities or qualities.

There you have it, self-assurance and appreciation. Love yourself. Better yourself. Appreciate yourself. Affirm yourself. Assure yourself.

Fake it till you make it. Just fake being confident. Posture straight, chest out, and shoulders back. Talk loud and clear enough.

When in a conversation, let things flow, don’t search for something to say, nearly missing all the details of what he or she is telling you. Let words come naturally, and if no words are there then let them be.

Step outside of your comfort zone more often. Do the things that give you anxiety.

Believe in yourself. You can do this!

Wear things that make you feel confident and sexy. If you look good, you’ll feel good, which means you’re self-assured. Make sure you look good for yourself and not others. Feel comfortable in what you wear too.

Smile and keep your arms uncrossed.

Don’t be self-conscious. Don’t focus on yourself too much. It makes it much easier to be confident.


Thanks for reading and feel free to leave any related and unrelated thoughts, I am always happy to hear what you have to say.

Take care๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’ž

    Fake it to make it. Yes! Our mind is easier to fool. Once we start believing that we are confident and practice the belief, we eventually become one!

    True, is an important and essential skill. I noticed visualizing yourself confident in situations that seem hard works over time in convincing yourself that all is well. By facing this situations you realize that the fears weren’t real or you Rob them of the powers they had over you.
