How to be Confident within Yourself

Heyy Nique Babies! ♥

1. Always begin at the end.
There are so many people that I've asked, What do you want to do? What do you want to be? and they would say, I don't know. Knowing what you want is the key. Everything else you do should be leading you where you want to go.
2. Start with gratitude.
Begin the day by thinking about some of the things you have to be grateful for. Most of the 7 billion people in the world won't have the opportunities you do. "If you start out with that perspective, you'll be in the right frame of mind for the rest of the day."
3. Take a daily step outside your comfort zone.
There's a funny thing about comfort zones. If we step outside them on a regular basis, they expand. If we stay within them, they shrink. Avoid getting trapped inside a shrinking comfort zone by pushing yourself to do things that are outside it.
4. Get ready to bounce back.
It's not failure that destroys our confidence, it's not getting back up. Once we get back up, we've learned what doesn't work and we can give it another try.

5. Breathe!
This one is so simple. If you breathe heavily, it saturates your brain with oxygen and makes you more awake and aware. It's very important in a tense situation because it will make you realize that you control your body, and not your unconscious mind. If you're not practicing breathing, you should be."
