Get out of your own head by asking a friend what you can do for them today.
Hit the gym.
Go to a networking event and focus on how you can be helpful.
Get crystal clear on the things that truly matter to you.
Write a list of the things you’re tolerating and putting up with in your life, then remove them.
Look at a great win or success you’ve experienced and give yourself credit for your part in it.
Next time you’re at a social event, don’t just stick with the people you know.
Next time you talk yourself out of doing something say ‘What the Hell’ and go do it anyway.
Do one thing each day that makes you smile.
Look for the patterns of thought where you start second-guessing or over-thinking. Change it.
Keep your mind well fed, so write a list of 20 things that keeps your mind feeling nourished.
Stop playing different roles.
Learn to catch yourself every single time you tell yourself that you can’t have what you want.
Take yourself off auto-pilot.
Scared of looking silly? You and everyone else. It’s no biggie so don’t let it stop you.
Don’t think for a second that you can’t be confident.
Listen to your doubts but be ready to make deliberate decisions once you’ve heard them.
Tear up your rule book and notice how free you are to make great decisions.
Do you get annoyed with yourself because you didn’t make the most of something? Instead, ask yourself what you gained from the situation and what you lost out on.
If you’d already done everything in life you’d have no need to be scared.
If there’s someone in your life who puts you down. You deserve better.
Reveal a little bit of the real you in a relationship that might feel like it’s in a rut.
Acknowledge and welcome all of your experiences.
Always recognise that you’re more than a match for any situation.
Don’t get swept up in the drama of what’s happening right now.
Don’t automatically give in to the instant pay-off.
When you feel like stamping your foot and yelling, take a step back.
Confidence sometimes means admitting you’re wrong.
Trust your instincts. They know what they’re talking about.
Fear is a way of letting you know that you’re about to stretch yourself and grow your confidence.
Imagine you’re visited by a successful, confident, attractive and vibrant version of you from the future. What do they want to tell you?
Don’t feel like you have to do everything yourself.
Take a chance on something tomorrow.
You need to be around people who make you feel like YOU.
Stop struggling against the things you don’t like in your life.
No man’s an island, and you need to be a part of the world you around to feel confident.
Forget the pro’s and con’s – do something bold in the face of your challenges and fears.
Work on developing the skills you need to win at the things that matter to you.
The body is a mirror for the mind, so shifting your body into a confident state can have surprising results.
Don’t get disheartened or demotivated.
Keep comparing yourself to others? Stop it.
Speak up if there’s something you think could be improved.
If there’s something you’ve been struggling to understand for a while, stop trying to understand it. Accept it just as it is.
Shy with new people? Being shy doesn’t mean you’re not confident.
Your environment directly impacts your self-perception, get organised.
Write yourself a list of the amazing things you’d love to do in your life.
Don’t make your happiness or self-worth dependent on being in a relationship or being validated by someone else.
Your strengths can be used to overcome any of your weaknesses.
The longer you leave that big thing on your to-do list the more it’ll drain you and the bigger it’ll seem.
What golden threads, themes, patterns and passions have always been in your life?
Your body image does matter, because if you have a bad relationship with your body you won’t be feeling confident in yourself.
Being confident is an ongoing process.
Try a new path.
Don’t say “Yes” to taking on a task simply because you don’t want to rock the boat.
Look at the people you respect who seem confident, identify what they do differently.
Make a plan to do something, then make deliberate choices to follow through.
When you feel yourself focusing inwards and becoming paralysed with doubt or fear, switch to focusing outwards at what you can engage and interact with.
Recognise that everything, whether it turns out or not, is how you practice living a rich life.
