How Do I Push Out Of My Comfort Zone?
“Doubt can motivate you, so don’t be afraid of it. Confidence and doubt are at two ends of the scale, and you need both. They balance each other out.” – Barbra Streisand

It has been shown that people are more willing to follow someone who is confident rather than someone who has low self-esteem.

Believe in yourself.

You cannot project confidence if you don’t have a belief in yourself or what you are doing. For instance, if you want to start a business, you need to believe that your business is feasible.

If you don’t believe in yourself, then you can’t possibly project genuine confidence.

Get others to believe in you.

When you project confidence, you will find followers to your cause. They will be attracted to your strength and will feel comfortable that you know what you are doing.

“With confidence and a strong work ethic, most dreams can come true.” – David Brett-Williams

It is much easier to act confident when you are surrounded by the belief of others.

Create an environment for others to succeed.

Confident people don’t fear competition. If you are in a position of power, you can project confidence by promoting a successful environment for all.

People will see that you aren’t afraid of being upstaged. There are few things more confident than someone who isn’t afraid of other’s success.

Remain calm.

If you overreact to every situation that comes your way, people are going to lose confidence in your abilities to lead. They will view this as a weakness and will suspect you lack confidence.

How To Keep Going When You Want To Give Up
“Confidence is key. Sometimes, you need to look like you’re confident even when you’re not.” – Vanessa Hudgens

Once that happens, it’s hard to turn that image of you around in their minds. Try to keep calm even during tense situations.

Use the right body language.

It might not be fair, but we are often judged by our appearance. One of the best ways to project confidence is to make an excellent first impression with the proper body language.

Stand tall, make eye contact and shake hands firmly and confidently.

Dress for success.

This goes hand in hand with the last tip. If you want to feel more confident, then dress the part.

Getting Started Is The Key To An Outstanding Life
“Beauty is grace and confidence. I’ve learned to accept and appreciate what nature gave me.” – Lindsay Lohan

Take some time in the morning to make sure your outfit and personal hygiene is really on point. The time spent doing this will easily pay off down the road when you feel and act more confident.

Know your capabilities.

If you are well aware of your strengths and capabilities, then you will naturally be more confident.

Having a good grasp of what you are good at, what you enjoy, and what you know will allow you to project more confidence.

Actionable Steps

1. Be more positive.

Having confidence requires being positive. Otherwise, you won’t believe in yourself and others won’t either.

Use daily affirmations to shift your mindset to positivity from negativity. You’ll find plenty of resources online that can give you the affirmations you need.

You are also welcome to create your own. Make sure you say them out loud every day.

2. Analyse your past failures and learn why they happened.

Also, determine what you did that you would do differently the next time something similar were to happen. Start recording your failures and continue to analyse them in the future.

“Confidence is a crucial building block in a successful career, and embracing it fully will take you places you never thought possible. With proper guidance and hard work, anyone can become more confident. Once you pass a certain point, you’ll feel it from the inside.” – Travis Bradberry

Be sure to accept that failure is a learning process rather than something to be ashamed of.

3. Ask three people you know what they think are your strengths and weaknesses.

This will prove that you are better at things than you believe. It can also help you improve on the areas that are considered weaknesses.

Once you improve on some of these key weaknesses, you will be naturally more confident.
