Have you noticed that all stunning women have one thing in common – besides their killer looks?
Confidence is also half the battle of passing or blending in as a woman.
How confident are you about expressing your fab femme self?
Do you think you’d feel more confident if you lost weight, started hormones, or had surgery?
Those things can help, of course, but true confidence comes from within.
Here are 3 ways to feel more confident right now:
1. Stop criticizing yourself
How can you expect to feel confident if you constantly put yourself down?
Most of us are so used to criticizing ourselves that we don’t even realize we’re doing it. It’s a bad habit – but like all bad habits, it can be broken.
The first step to stopping the cycle is to interrupt your thoughts. If you catch yourself beating yourself up, literally tell yourself to STOP.
Next, find a way to reframe your thoughts into something more positive. Remind yourself that you’re doing the best you can with what you have. Look for progress rather than perfection.
This might sound like simple advice, but it works if you actually do it.
2. Step outside your comfort zone
Confidence is like a muscle. If you don’t use it, you’ll lose it. And just like your muscles, it’s something you can develop and improve.
One of the best ways to develop confidence is to take action. You’ll never build confidence if you stay in your comfort zone and do the same things you’ve always done.
So get out there and try something new! Take a few risks! Once you do, you’ll be amazed at how confident you start to feel in situations that once terrified you.
3. Celebrate your successes
Appreciating your accomplishments is another great way to increase your confidence.
It’s easy to focus on the areas that still need improving, but don’t lose sight of how far you’ve come.
What risks did you take today? What did you do well? No matter how small, start to recognize these and celebrate them.
