Confidence tips

Confidence Tips

  • Self confidence is a state of mind

  • Self confidence begins with positive thought processes

  • If we are thinking positively then we will have positive feelings and these feelings will then become obvious to others through    our voice and body language

  • Practice turning your negative thoughts into positive ones

  • Your inner voice is very powerful so you must take control of it or it will take control of you

  • Negativity destroys self confidence. Don’t let it happen!

  • Each time you have a negative thought, quickly kick it into touch and replace it with a positive one

  • Turn your “negative affirmation” into “positive affirmation” and you will look, sound and feel much more confident

  • When we look at someone who is very confident, we immediately assume that they are totally in control. This is not always  true - they are often “feeling” unsure but they are very good at “appearing” to be totally in control

  • You too can come across as a self confident individual – if you believe in yourself enough!

  • Stand tall, your shoulders relaxed and down and your chin level with the floor

  • Breathe easily and deeply and take your time when speaking. Don’t rush!

  • Keep your physical gestures controlled – don’t fidget!

  • Use relaxed, direct eye contact

  • Keep your mind clear – focus on your communication, not your nervous tension
