Whether you are looking for a new job or going on a first date, one of the most important characteristics that will stand you in good stead is your self-confidence. Increase your self-confidence with these tactics to help you through interviews, meetings, and more.
Make eye contact. People are insecure by nature. We always wonder if we’re boring a person, if they really want to speak to us, if what we’re saying makes sense. Eye contact eliminates this doubt. If you look a person in the eye, it signals that you not only hear what they’re saying but are interested in it. If you have to look away do it slowly. This reinforces your interest and enjoyment of what you’re hearing.
Never compare yourself to others, here's why: Every person is born with particular gifts and innate skills, a tendency to be better at some things rather than others. We all have different qualities, skill sets, and priorities.
Tell me who your friends are and I will tell you who you are. Studies have shown that we become the average of the closest five people in our lives. As humans we are so easily manipulated by others that often times our outcomes in life can be predetermined by people with completely different goals and visions. You must be conscious of the people around you and self assess if they are influencing you in a positive way and how much of that influence they have in your life. Some people you'd want to stay away from that you might encounter in your life:
Try to refrain from telling them too much about yourself. By doing this, you will intrigue (him/her) and keep them interested. They will be excited at the thought of meeting you, and will always look forward to seeing you again. Which is what we want to build up a strong attraction for.
TAKE A HOT BATH. Soak in the tub. Epsom salt, bath bombs, bubble bath. Light a candle and throw on some music and relax! Shave your legs, exfoliate, make yourself feel good! Anything lavender scented is great for stress.
Don’t waste time being fearful. Go for that job that you’re certain you’re not gonna get. What’s the worse that can happen? You are rejected, but you gain interview experience. Self-doubt is really a waste of time.
To really feel more confident and to get a clearer vision of how to establish what things in life your most confident version of yourself would have. What would they look like? How would they carry themselves or do things differently from you now? Create a vision board or write it down so you can understand what exactly you want and start working towards that right now.
What is the thing that is most holding you back from being the best version of yourself? You might be tempted to say something along the lines of time, energy, money, or opportunity. Perhaps you feel limited by other people?
A Goddess does not dream up some fantasy future that she wants to come true. She does not obsess over what the guy is or isn’t doing. She will not analyse his behaviour. She has no deluded beliefs that being with him will somehow make her happier, more complete or make her life any better than it is right now. She has fun in the moment and enjoys her interactions with her man. When she is not with him she’s not really thinking about him at all.
Create an air of mystery. Never reveal more than you need to about yourself. This generates interest and a desire to be involved in your life, considering you’re not bearing all of it on social media. It’s as if only certain people get access to you, and everyone is aware of that.
Who you know greatly affects your net worth. You’ve probably heard the saying “you’re the average of the five people you spend the most time with”. This is real! Who we spend our time with is a reflection of who we are and where our life is going. Hang around 4 broke people, you’ll be the 5th one. Or you can hang around 4 wealthy people, and become the 5th one.
