There are more people who lack self-confidence than you might think… But having confidence in yourself isn’t natural, you have to learn it. Here are our 5 pieces of advice to boost your self-confidence.
1. Maintain eye-contact.
Basically, look who you’re talking to in the eye and don’t lose their gaze, but also try not to creep them out. If you avoid looking someone in the eye, it can make you look timid and weak.
2. Start the conversation.
Being taken by surprise is unsettling, anticipating a conversation is a good way to give yourself confidence. Be confident and courageous and start a conversation. It might not be so obvious at first, but over time, you will start to feel more at ease.
3. Do something you’re passionate about.
This means you can destress after a long day and you blow off steam. Then you also have another thing to talk about.
4. Know your strengths and your weaknesses.
There’s nothing better than knowing yourself for boosting your self-confidence. Once you know what your weak points are, you can work around them, and as for your strong points, you can use them to your advantage.
5. Remember you’re unique.
Stop comparing yourself to others because this will make you frustrated which doesn’t help anyone. Forget your complexes and look at what you like about yourself and what you’re proud of.
