How to Be More Confident

Optimized-IMG_9988

  1. Remember you are the only person holding yourself back from achieving anything.
  2. What makes you uncomfortable is the only way you will ever grow. Do something new that scares you everyday.
  3. This builds on the last point, but people are only motivated to do what is easy. Try something difficult like signing up for a marathon, joining a networking group, or doing something far out of your comfort zone. Get the courage to talk to that pretty girl or attractive guy in the office/on the train.
  4. Indecision is the thief of opportunity, so never doubt yourself. You are capable of more than you think.
  5. Whether you are a billionaire or a beggar, we all have same 24 hours in a day. Get organized, write down small goals each day, and see what you achieve over the course of a month.
  6. As cliche as it is to say, you truly just have to love yourself and be confident. There will never be a time on this planet where negative people will not exist. Don’t let the haters get you down.
  7. Any human being who gets pleasure out of making other people insecure and unhappy is just reflecting their insecurities onto you. You do not need to be unhappy or unsatisfied with yourself. People proud of who you are always.
  8. In regards to the work environment, if you want to do better or stand out ask for feedback from your managers/supervisors. You will learn how to be better at your job and your manager will appreciate and respect you even more.
  9. Listen to other people and truly care about their problems. Helping others provides you with new perspectives on how to handle your own problems.
  10. Life is short, you will always regret the chances you do not take, so go out and take those chances. You’ll never have any regrets that way.
