”Low self-confidence isn’t a life sentence. Self-confidence can be learned, practiced, and mastered–just like any other skill. Once you master it, everything in your life will change for the better.”
Barrie Davenport

Building self confidence takes time. It takes work to change your belief system; increase your feelings of self-efficacy; become fully aware of your true value; and gain new skills and knowledge..

.
However, there are times in life when you need a boost of confidence, and you need it immediately. You have to give an important presentation at work. You are going out on a date with someone you really like. Or maybe you are going to attend a meeting at which you’re expected to contribute ideas and suggestions.

.
When you need to impress, give yourself an edge with these quick self confidence boost;

.
Improve your posture. Stand up straight; Push your shoulders back. Widen your stance and hold your head high. Take a moment to hold the power pose for one or two minutes before an important event in order to increase your self-confidence and make a powerful impression when you walk in through the door.

.
Dress for success. You have probably heard the adage, “dress for success”. It turns out that there are studies that suggest that what you wear can have a direct effect on how secure and powerful you feel. Ask yourself what clothes do I associate with power and confidence?  When you want a quick self-confidence boost, make sure to wear those clothes.

.
Think powerful thoughts. When you need some confidence in a flash, think of a time when you acted in a powerful way. For those times when you need to do your best, power-prime yourself with thoughts of previous successes. Remind yourself of how talented you are by looking at your qualifications, achievements and accomplishments.

.
We could all use some extra confidence now and then. Live your best life by being ready to increase your self-confidence on-the-spot. Take yourself forward with a confidence boost today.

“Always remember you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.”
Christopher Robin
