The above video is a great way for people to combine becoming more confident with artistic expression.
Confidence is something that we all struggle with at some time or another. Maybe you are great in small groups of people but if you had to speak in front of a large group you begin to become anxious. I believe that children come into this world with lots of confidence but it quickly gets put to the test through our experiences. We can gain that confidence back again by taking daily baby steps towards that goal.
One of the major steps to moving toward confidence is the intention to become more confident. Making it your intention is most important. Make it important to you. Feel that YOU are important and that you can do this for yourself.
Here are 3 easy steps to take toward confidence today.
- Make eye contact and smile! Today as you go about your life, set your intention to make eye contact and to smile with as many people as you can. You don't have to say anything but look and smile. I think you may be surprised at the responses you get. If someone ignores or looks and doesn't smile, just realize that they are fighting their own battles today. Maybe your smile gave them reason to feel that things are not so bad.
- Give a compliment. Maybe you are in the grocery line, or the elevator, or anywhere there are people that you don't know. Find someone and give them a compliment. It not only will help with your confidence but you will be helping them with theirs also. By giving a compliment you are speaking with someone you don't know but there is no deep conversation going on. It is usually quick and then you move on. Do that as much as you can today.
- Wear something that makes you feel good and watch your body language. Maybe you have an outfit that makes you feel good. Maybe it is just a pair of shoes or a scarf. Wear it today and stand tall. The way you move makes a huge difference in how you feel about yourself and wearing something that you feel good in will help you move more confidently.
These are only 3 easy things to start with TODAY! Just know that by smiling, talking to strangers, and walking more confidently will not kill you. You will live to see another day. What it will do though is give you more confidence see and accomplish all that you desire. Start today, don't wait!
