Confidence. It’s not easy to come by. It’s always naturally occurring in the depths of one’s soul. For some people, confidence doesn't exist - and yet, it’s these people that have the power to change things for the better. Being confident isn’t just a thing people do; it’s a feeling. It’s knowing you are excellent - even on the days where your skin doesn't agree.

Every single person starts out with total confidence. I mean, have you ever met a five year old who wasn’t absolutely sure that they were a princess who was correct about everything in the whole world? Have you ever met a six year old that felt self-conscious in a tutu, a blazer and a pair of jelly shoes? Of course not! Children are epic: everything is an adventure and they rock whatever they wear. Why? Because they do not care what people think.

If confidence comes from a place of putting your own opinions first and letting go of the stares, the whispers and the incessant need to impress anyone else, then it stands to reason that you can manifest your own confidence. By simply letting it all go and not worrying what other people think of you, you could be as confident as you like. However, that doesn't mean that you can’t change things that you want to change - but this time, you’re doing it for your own opinions on yourself and not the opinions of others. Shall we look at five changes that you could make to feel more confident? Let’s go.

Start with an easy one: your skincare routine. How often do you cleanse, tone and moisturize? If you know that you don’t have the right lotions and potions, it’s time to think of it as an investment in your skin. You want softer, brighter and more hydrated skin that is less prone to spots and scarring and you can have it. Check out these skincare products that were top of the lists for 2019!

Feeling conscious about your teeth? Why not check out how much braces cost? You may be a grown up, but no one said that there was a time limit to getting braces and fixing your teeth. Stop worrying about the crooked one at the front and get into the dental office and ask for help!

It’s time to go shopping. You need a wardrobe overhaul. There’s no more hiding yourself in black clothes that are shapeless and too big. Go and spend some money on the colours that you love for a change!

Start saying yes to those who want you to join them socially. Say yes to promotions at work that put on a little more pressure and say yes to the invites to head abroad. You can gain so much confidence when you put yourself out there!

Say no to those who make you feel less than the amazing person that you are. You do not need to go into the year feeling down, pressured, stressed or sad - and it’s you in control of this!

What do you do to feel confident? Do you have any tips to boost confidence?

  1. I don't ever feel confident. It's a part of myself that I really want to work on. I'd love to get some Invisalign to sort out my teeth because normal braces did nothing when I was a kid! xD
