When you dress nicely, you feel great! Take note of how you feel the next time you put on that sharp business suite or outfit that you look really nice in!

2. Stay Motivated
One of the best ways to build confidence is hearing from others who have achieved success; use others success stories to motivate you. We all have passions and talent; tell yourself that if they did it, so can you! So listening to a motivational speech is a great source for inspiration. Better still is, creating your own personal motivational speech is even more powerful! Get used to hearing yourself speak positively about yourself and see yourself as successful! With many of us using smart phones, computer microphones and other software, creating your own motivational speech is easy. Write a speech that highlights your strengths and goals. Keep it short, about a minute long and then record your written speech. Replay it to your heart’s content. Not computer or smart phone savvy?... no worries! Get in front of a mirror and recite your written speech aloud whenever you need a boost of confidence.
3. Eliminate NegativityWhen we think negatively about ourselves, we often project that feeling on to others in the form of insults and gossip. Break this cycle of negativity by getting in the habit of praising other people. Refuse to engage in backstabbing gossip (try it for 7 days straight) and make a conscious effort to compliment those around you. In the process, you’ll become well liked and build self confidence. By looking for the best in others, you indirectly bring out the best in yourself.
Setting aside time each day to list everything you have to be grateful for keeps your focus on what is a blessing in your life. Recall and list your past successes, unique skills, loving relationships, and positive energy. Oprah, talks about the power of keeping a Gratitude Journal which helped her to “eat her anxiety”. You’ll be amazed how much you have going for you and motivated to take that next step towards success. When you focus too much on what you want, the mind creates reasons why you can’t have it. This leads you to dwell on your weaknesses. The best way to avoid this is consciously focusing on gratitude.
