Happy Tuesday! Hope everyone is having a great night! I decided to do this post because it is so sad to me the amount of girls that lack self confidence nowadays (wow! that made me sound old). But it’s so true! Everywhere I look girls are lacking self confidence, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, at Target, the mall, and everywhere in between. I get so annoyed when I see girls self hating, and constantly complaining all over social media. The tweets about “I need to loose 20 pounds for my summer bod” and “I’m so ugly” like why??
Anyways, I decided to share with you all 26 tips for boosting your self confidence! I am huge on quotes, I have have a quote wall, so I will be sharing a a quote with every tip! Keep on reading if you want to learn these tips for a happier and more confident life!
➝Dress up & take lots of selfies!
“Playing dress-up begins at age five and truly never ends” -Kate Spade
⋮Even if you’re aren’t going anywhere that day/night get all dolled up and put on those heels that make you feel sexy and confident! Put on that dress that hugs all the right places, and then go and take a million selfies and post them all over the internet. But not for others and the likes but for yourself, because you look good!!
“Keep a smile on your face, it’s the best accessory you can ever wear.” -Anonymous
⋮I don’t need to tell you that a smile means happiness. Smiling always leads to laughter, which is always a confidence booster! Smiling boosts your confidence in so many different ways I’d be here all night explaining them all to you. So keep that smile on and walk around like you got this!
➝Do something nice for someone else
“No act of kindness, no matter how small is NEVER wasted.” -Anonymous
⋮Weather thats giving at least three different compliments to three different people, or returning a lost cell phone, or giving directions, or giving presents to a family in need at Christmas time, do an act of kindness everyday. Trust me it makes you feel good to know you did something good.
➝Change up your hair
“A women who cuts her hair is about to change her life.” -Coco Chanel
⋮Now weather you just get a trim, or you cut off 12in., or you dye your hair blue, I know I always feel so confident after a hair cut! I chopped all my hair off in December of 2015, like to my collarbone, It was down to my butt basically. I felt so much more confident in my self! When I went back to school for my last semester of senior year I killed it!
➝Treat to’ self
“Treat yourself as a Queen and you’ll attract a King” -Anonymous
⋮Go out and order five desserts at dinner and don’t worry about the calories. Go and spoil yourself at the mall and buy a new outfit or two or five! Get those silky bed sheets because you deserve them! Buy that hot new lipstick, why? Because you want it! Just go out and treat yourself to something new each week, because your hardworking and you deserve this!
“Take care of your body it’s the only place you have to live” -Jim Rohn
⋮Go to the Spa for a day of Mani/Pedis and facials! There is nothing like a fresh Mani to boost your self esteem! I swear every time I get a fresh Mani I am so extra fancy with everything I do. And when your skin is glowing you’re glowing! You radiate happiness and self love! So go out to your favorite spa or salon and treat yo’ self!
➝Surrond yourself with ONLY positive people!
“Don’t let the behaviors of others destroy your inner peace” -Anonymous
⋮Cut them out! Right now! Don’t let these toxic people be in your life one second longer! Don’t let them take away your confidence to only make them feel better about themselves. That’s not right an you are so better than that! So if that means that you have to block them on everything, DO IT! Trust me knowing that these toxic people can’t judge you and bring you down anymore makes you believe so much more in yourself!
➝Visualize your dreams and goals
“If you can imagine it, you can achieve it; If you can dream it, you can become it.” -William Arthur Ward
⋮Picture your dreams in your head right now. Got it? Good, now that you can envision yourself making those dreams a reality and killing it in whatever it is that you love to do, set goals so you can be in the moment and not your dreams! Start out with daily goals, and weekly goals, and monthly goals, and next thing you know BAM! your dreams right in front of you! And what do you know you’ve never been so confident in yourself!
➝Do something that scares you
“So please ask yourself: what would I do if I weren’t so afraid? And then go DO IT.” -Sheryl Sandberg
⋮Pick one thing a day that scares you, and then do it! And if that scares you, even better! Knowing that you’re doing something that scares you a day, and then getting trough it each day will boost your happiness and confidence in yourself! Just keep telling yourself “you’ve got this, don’t give up just because you’re scared!”
➝Care for yourself
“Put yourself at the top of your to-do list every single day and the rest will fall into place” -Anonymous
⋮Always remember that you come first! Over anyone and everyone you are the most important, because you are the only you there is. So get up everyday make your bed, clean your room, take a shower, and get ready for the amazing day you have ahead of you! Don’t forget to meditate in the morning! I like to put on headphones and listen to my favorite music while clearing my mind and preparing myself for the crazy day ahead!
➝Stand up for yourself
“You teach people how to treat you by what you allow, what you stop, and what you reinforce.” -Tony Gaskins
⋮Stop letting people walk all over you right now! Start standing up for yourself and what you believe in. Don’t let people bully you anymore! Girl you got this! I believe in you! Know, don’t go around treating others with the disrespect you once received. Simply Stand up for yourself and what you believe in a respectful manor.
➝Positive thinking, always!
“What consumes your mind, controls your life.” -Anonymous
⋮This quote says it all! If you are thinking negative things about yourself, you will start to believe these false things are true. Find the positive in every negative situation! And yes, there is a positive in every situation. Go into every meeting, every scary situation your put into, every doctors visit, and every test with positive thoughts. They will go a long way if you truly believe in them and yourself!
➝NEVER lower your standards
“Don’t lower your standards for anyone or anything. Self respect is everything.” -Anonymous
⋮Another quote that yet again explains it all! Their ceiling is your floor. Don’t make their ceiling your ceiling just to make them happy. If this means turning down a business opportunity, that you know is below you and you can do much better, DO IT and don’t hesitate. Don’t go to the other college just because it’s closer to your S.O., When you had the opportunity to go to an amazing college and pursue your dreams. Your dreams are yours, not theirs.
That is all for tonight! I will have the rest (part two) up around noon CDT tomorrow. Remember to “Always have courage and be kind” -Cinderella
