26 Living Secrets To Being Confident

  1. Drink a glass of cold water every morning when you wake up. Think of that glass of water as new life just added into your body. The water will create a balance in your body between your brain and the rest of the body.
  2. Breathe in deeply and hold your breath for a few seconds. Then release your breath slowly—not at once, holding it after every few seconds. Repeat three or four times.
  3. Look in the mirror and tell the person you see in the mirror, “You’re beautiful and wonderfully made. You were created to defeat every adversity, whether internal or external, with finality.”
  4. Meditate for about 10 to 20 minutes and flush out every negative thought. Banish every negative thought and determine it should never invade your thoughts again. Replace every negative thought with 5 positive ones and write them down and cram them.
  5. Perform some basic physical exercises like push-ups, sit-ups, pull-ups, squats, jogging, etc. Increase these gradually until your body begins to complain, then move on to the next level. Make it a daily routine.
  6. Studies have shown that people are actually stronger than they think or feel. Look in the mirror once again and make a good laugh, even if there’s nothing funny to laugh about.
  7. Don’t eat your breakfast in a hurry to avoid upsetting the system, but eat a good breakfast rich with energy foods like cereals, eggs, milk and fruits, but don’t fill your stomach.
  8. If you’re walking, walk faster than the average person and don’t stoop when walking or standing. Straighten up and walk upright with a steady gait.
  9. When walking in the street, look at a point slightly above the people walking in the opposite direction. They’ll most likely give way, which will certainly give you more confidence.
  10. If you’re driving, drive carefully, but don’t mind about the other drivers or what they say about you or your car. If they wave at you or smile at you, wave back or smile back, but don’t exaggerate it.
  11. Never mind what other people think bout you, or how you dress, or the color or style of your shoes, but concentrate more about yourself and your own thoughts.
  12. When someone asks you a question, don’t answer immediately. Give yourself time to think about the question before you answer. The brain will gain more confidence to process information before answering questions. Don’t answer questions you’re unsure of.
  13. Look people in the eye for a few seconds but not long enough to embarrass them. Making eye contact is key to self-confidence, but don’t overdo it.
  14. Smile even when other people are serious. And look serious when other people are smiling. They’ll get confused and think you’re different.
  15. When people stare at you, don’t stare back at them directly. Stare at a point slightly above their eyes. Then drop your stare and look at their shoes. They’ll think something is wrong with their shoes.
  16. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Majority of people who don’t ask questions show a lack of confidence and fear.
  17. Don’t be afraid to speak. If you’re an introvert, practice extroversion, until your self-confidence grows.
  18. Stop comparing yourself to others, and remember that being loud may just be a sign of fear or lack of confidence. Detach yourself and stop looking up to others.
  19. Believe in yourself. Think of yourself as unique and different, and that there’s no one exactly like you in the whole world.
  20. Remember, everybody is just like you and as confident as you. The only difference is the courage they have.
  21. Develop the confidence to say “NO”. This is a symbol of inner strength, and remember, making mistakes is not a sign of weakness.
  22. Dress in style, but don’t dress to impress other people—dress in what makes you feel comfortable and happy, and what you enjoy seeing on your body.
  23. Resolve to learn a new thing every day by developing a reading habit.
  24. Resolve to make at least one good friend every year. It is important to develop support around you.
  25. Become the average of 5 good friends or 5 people who are smarter than you.
  26. Lastly but not least, be happy—always. Remember, lack of happiness is the beginning of slow death.
