8 confidence boosting tips to improve your self-esteem

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be?- Marianne Williamson

Groom yourself / dress nicely: You have no control over other people’s taste, so focus on staying true to your own.

Visualise: You can have anything you want if you are willing to give up the belief that you can’t have it.

Improve posture: If you are insecure, guess what? The rest of the world is too. Do not overestimate the competition and underestimate yourself. You are better than you think.

Think positive to kill negative thoughts: Talk to yourself like you would to someone you love.

Put in the hours: The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease forever to be able to do it.

Fake it until you make it: Confidence is a habit that can be developed by acting as if you already had the confidence you desire to have.

Redefine fear and failure: Confidence comes not from always being right but from not fearing to be wrong.

Power pose: If we all did the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves.
