How To Be Confident

Confidence is not walking into a room thinking “I’m sure they’ll like me”, it’s walking into a room thinking “I’m good if they don’t”. Your confidence is not gained from the outside world, it’s not gained from what people think or say about you — if it’s yours it’s gained from you and only you.

Similar to the concept of lasting fulfilment — you must create your own confidence. This is done by you becoming comfortable with yourself — you can do this by spending time with yourself and learning to accept yourself for who you are.

Some of you are not confident in your looks because you are comparing yourself to others. Some of you are not confident in your own skin because of what others have projected onto you. Some of you are not confident in your minds because you have not spent enough time with yourselves.

Reconnect with who you truly are and look within to find that which you are trying to find outside. You will never be truly confident if you rely on the compliments of others to fulfil you. You will never be truly confident if you are waiting for others to validate you — this must come from within.

Look at yourself in the mirror every day and get used to the way you look, speak and think. Understand that you are the only person living in your head — therefore everyone else’s opinions are irrelevant. We all like different things, just because one person says they like you — it doesn’t mean everyone else will.

The real question is — do you like yourself? Are you happy with the person you’ve become? What is your self-talk like? What are the dominant thoughts in your head when you’re alone? Are you proud of yourself? This is where true confidence comes from — when you are at peace with yourself.

Confidence is gained from the way you see yourself.
