Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself
– Coco Chanel
We are all deep into this personal development and self-care journey and that’s great but one thing we can’t leave out is confidence! Confidence is defined as “the feeling of self-assurance arising from one’s appreciation of one’s own abilities or qualities”. Why are some women more confident than others? How can you become confident if you don’t feel as though you already are? Here are seven things confident women do differently.
- They don’t apologize unless there’s a good reason
Have you ever met those women who are constantly apologizing and saying “sorry” for everything? Yea, we all have! There’s no need for it so stop! Most of the time women who are doing it haven’t even done anything wrong! It’s just been programmed in us to constantly apologize. Confident women move IN purpose and ON purpose. So, if you haven’t actually offended anyone unintentionally or hurt someone stop it.
2. They are their own cheerleaders!
Here’s the reality of this thing ladies, sometimes NO ONE is going to be there EVERY step of the way cheering you on your entire life. You have to have enough confidence in yourself and what you believe in to keep going anyway. I mean, everyone has their own agenda in life and rightfully so. Be your own cheerleader and motivate yourself along your journey with a smile!
3. They focus on SOLUTIONS instead of PROBLEMS
The quickest way down a spiral of negativity is to focus on problems in life. There WILL be problems and issues along the way but how you choose to deal with those “problems” will make the difference between a positive outcome in life or a negative one. Confident woman focus solely on SOLUTIONS. Like, okay I’ve got this obstacle but what can I do to resolve it and move forward?
4. They help others
Have you ever been in a situation in life where you were at the”right place at the right time” and were able to help someone in need? How good did that make you feel? Confident women are constantly helping others whenever they can because they know it’s the right thing to do and it boosts self-confidence.
5. They don’t compare themselves to others
Confident women know that everyone has his or her own journey in life and they embrace that. They never try to compare themselves to the next person. If anything, they ask someone how they got to where they did instead of envying the next person. They are happy for everyone’s success around them and know that they too can have great things because they’re confident in that!
6. They are comfortable in their own skin
Confident women love the way they look because they know its who they are! Every “imperfection” is perfect to them and they own it. If there’s something they want to improve on themselves such as their health for a happier life, they take the necessary steps to make it happen!
7. They uplift others around them and radiate positivity!
Have you ever been around someone that was just so happy and positive all the time that you couldn’t help but get in a better mood around them? That screams CONFIDENCE. Being a woman of confidence helps you uplift and keep those around you in the best mood so you can take on all of life’s wonderful adventures!
