Staying confident is one of the best attributes any man or woman can ever have and this shouldn’t be confused with arrogance or pride.
If you know you lack confidence, then here are some few tips to help you stay confident.
1. Hold Eye Contact
When talking to people, learn to look them straight in the eye. This gives you power over them and it also makes your words honest because people trust you the more if you look them in the eyes while talking to them. It shows that you’re not shy nor afraid.
2. Walk With A Good Posture
Walking sluggishly is a sign that you lack confidence. Learn to keep your chin up, shoulders high and back straight when walking. This gives you a confident posture and makes people respect you.

3. Motivate Yourself
Don’t wait for people to inspire you to do something or tell you how good you are. You must learn to motivate yourself to get things done because you are capable. If you rely too much on people, they tend to believe that you don’t believe in yourself.
4. Surround Yourself With The Right People
Don’t associate with people who only know how to bring out your weakness and are full of negativity. Surround yourself with people who will point out your great assets and accept your weaknesses while helping you overcome them.
5. Love Life
No matter what you do, life comes with its ups and downs, learn to love and don’t let just one bad fall control your entire life. It’s not about falling or about failing, it’s about rising after a fall and fighting on.
6. Love Yourself
Loving yourself gives you a confident outlook because it offers you an opportunity to accept who you are, your flaws and strengths. Once this is done, it tells on you and that’s how people will also accept you.
7. Dress To Impress
Don’t let people or society decide what you need to wear, learn to dress to impress. Your dressing must be able to turn heads and when that happens, you will automatically feel confidence surge through your veins. Appearance is very important.
8. Feel Confident
One best way of staying confident is to learn to feel it and the rest will take its course. If you want people to see you as a confident person, you need to exude confidence in the way you talk, walk, greet and relate with people.
9. Talk To Yourself
Learn to talk to yourself when you’re alone and sometimes look in the mirror and tell yourself how confident you’re and all the best things you can do to change the world. Speak some positivity into your life.
Smiling is contagious so always have a smile on your face. Once people see your smile, they’ll smile back and this will boost your confidence since their reception will be very warm.
