TIPS ON BEING CONFIDENT?
Tip 1: BELIEVE IT FOR YOURSELF
Confidence really is a mental mindset. Therefor if you don’t believe it for yourself you can’t expect anybody else to.
Start with small things :
Try doing this every morning for a whole week, right when you wake up just go to a mirror and look at yourself head to toe. Natural faced, bed hair, morning breath and all. And then repeat “ this is the real me, just as I am and I’m still poppin ” *snap ya fingers* and walk away.
After so long of saying it, it’ll be like your own personal anthem so that way no matter what you look like you’ll still always be grounded with who you are. Whether you’ve gone and did yourself up to go to a drake concert or you just rolled out of bed.
Tip 2: INNER AND OUTER BEAUTY.
Outer beauty is important. I’m not saying you need to walk in like you just won Miss Universe 2016, but jazz it up every now and then. If you like wearing makeup then do your eyebrows, put some mascara or eyeliner on, lipgloss and then slay. And if you prefer going all natural then you better step out the house exfoliated, moisturized and all and werk! Inner beauty is just as if not more important. We’re humans and balls of energy so you have to know that you do make mistakes and it’s okay, as long as you learn from them. Be nice to yourself. Anything that you consider to be flaws (stretch marks, acne, extra weight, being thin, crooked teeth, big lips, small lips, talking too fast, being too tall or too short, the way you talk, having an accent, birthmarks, cellulite, short hair, thick hair, thin hair, having dark chocolate, chocolate, caramel, vanilla or pale skin, the fact that your thighs touch or jiggle, and anything else that you might not be comfortable with about yourself. Realize that you wouldn’t be the same person without it, your flaws give you character. speak kind words to yourself, as well as to other people. Trust me an ugly spirit can be seen from the outside. Just love on yourself as well as each other.
Tip 3 : MAKE AN ENTRANCE
It doesn’t need to be anything extreme. Now this may sound corny but for me, whenever I go anywhere whether it’s the mall, the bank, the gas station even the grocery store I have a short playlist of songs titled “entrance music”. Lol I try to find the most random ratchet music ever and right before I walk in I press play. I don’t know how but it kind of just gives me a little boost. you can pick what songs you like or you can use mine.
Entrance Songs :
Flex - Rich Homie Quan
F*ck Up Some Commas - Future
Flicka Da Wrist - Chedda Da Connect
Thro Sum Mo - Rae Sremmurd ft Nick Minaj
I’m A Flirt - R.Kelly
She Got A Donk - Soulja Boy
Milkshake - Kelis ( Dawin Remix )
Tip 4: YOUR WALK
ladies as well as other things, your walk says a lot about you and it plays a really big role with confidence.
Just a little
But just enough.
You can even put a little sway in the hips if you feel like it, but walk like the Queens you know you are
Your posture will talk you a long way
Tip 5 : GET TO KNOW YOURSELF
sometimes I feel like people are afraid to be still with themselves for too long. Just disconnected from everything, no phone or electronics, no music, no distractions. Just you and your thoughts. So you can soak in how you really feel about yourself.
Meditation and Mindfulness are really good remedies for centering yourself and just being in that moment. It’s noticing the small details about yourself and learning to accept and love them regardless. That’s what makes the confidence you’re shooting for to be genuine.
Sorry for it being soo long btw, I hope this helped in some way✨🌻✌🏾️🍃
