Do you find yourself looking at people around you did they get so much confidence? Chances are most of them have doubts...just like you. Confidence isn't something you is something you create! Confidence is believing in yourself, knowing you can accomplish whatever you set your mind to, knowing your worth, your value & your importance. Confidence comes from within...let's look at 4 ways we can start to improve our confidence!

1. POSITIVITY - Improve your self-talk
Thinking positive can manifest itself in many different ways. What you focus on becomes your reality – and that includes what you focus on within your own mind. Replace negative words with positive ones and start seeing the bright side of situations. By changing your focus you’re changing your state. Our minds are powerful and can determine how we are perceived and how we view ourselves. Even when you having doubts about how positive your's important to "fake it till you make it".  Our words create our emotions, and our emotions create our world. If we’re not feeling confident, it’s a result of the stories we tell ourselves – and the words we use to tell them. How do you talk to yourself in your own mind? The self-talk you use, otherwise known as your inner monologue, has an important effect on your confidence. Catch yourself when you are thinking negatively about your body and replace the thought with something you like about yourself.

2. GRATITUDE - You are amazing!
A gratitude practice has really changed my life! Stop thinking of your body as existing only to look at – or worse, for others to look at. Your body is more than a vessel or a painting to be admired. Think about all the things your body does for you. When you take a minute to appreciate all the things your body lets you do, it will start to feel more like a gift than a burden. Start to write down 3-5 things that your grateful for about YOUR body! You will find yourself feeling a little more love for yourself, which will in turn give you a confidence boost!

3. STAND Tall
The fastest way to become more confident is act the part. Stand up straight. Make eye contact. Square your shoulders and open up your chest. Breathe deeply. Maintain brisk, purposeful strides when you walk to cover more ground. Maintaining a posture like this makes you feel stronger and where your body goes, your mind follows. When you appear to be confident visually..people will take notice. 

Pay attention to times when you compare your wealth, possessions, skills, achievements, and attributes. Thinking that other people are better or have more will erode your confidence in yourself. When you notice you are drawing comparisons, remind yourself that doing so isn’t helpful. Everyone is running their own race and life isn’t a competition.
Instead of comparing...Be good to others,  count your blessings, identify and avoid frenemies, seek positive support.
