How to Look and Feel Confident

How To Look And Feel Confident

Confidence is one of the most important factors that will help you lead a happy and successful life.

If you don’t feel or look confident, your employer, co-workers and even your loved ones won’t think of you as trustworthy. What’s more, studies have shown that people who appear highly confident, but are not actually that much confident, manage to get better positions at work, and have more success with love partners.

Therefore, with a few tricks you could also become more confident and look like that as well.

Positive Thinking

Positive Thinking

Think positive and positive things will happen.

If you try to keep this saying on your mind every day, you’ll see how your life will start going in a better direction. You’ll feel good about yourself, and you’ll see the world differently.

When you think that you’re not happy about your weight, and say, “I’m fat”, try to put it in a different perspective. Instead of feeling desperate, do something about your dissatisfaction, and don’t be so hard on yourself.

Feel Grateful

When you have low self-esteem, you usually feel unfulfilled in your life and you start noticing all of its shortcomings. Instead of looking for all that you’re missing, look around you, and feel grateful for all the things you do have in life.

Therefore, take care of everything you have ‒ your health, job, loved ones, and good home ‒ and that is all you really need in life.

Help Others

Helping others helps you grow as a person. Doing good deeds boosts your self-confidence and makes you feel good about yourself, because you’ve made someone else happy.

If you need to be and look more confident, become a qualified home care professional and take care of elderly people. It’s a great profession for meeting new people, helping them with everyday activities, and interacting with all kinds of individuals that can even teach you a couple of things about life.

Smile Often

SmileThe more you smile the more confident you’ll feel, because when you smile, your mind gets the signal that you’re feeling well and satisfied.

What’s more, after you smile, the hormone of happiness ‒ serotonin is triggered in your body and you instantly feel happier. So smile more often and you’ll relieve your stress, boost your immune system and lower your blood pressure as well.

Additionally, it’s been proved that people who smile often are more attractive, other people perceive them as more radiant and confident.

Dress for Success

Dress for successAn outfit does say a lot about a person, and makes them feel a certain way.

Just imagine the way you’d feel if you walked into your office in a pair of jeans, sneakers and a hoodie, as opposed to a business suit, and with a nice hairstyle and makeup. The first one would make you look less confident, while the latter will form a look of a true confident and trustworthy person.

When you look yourself in the mirror wearing a business outfit, you’ll like what you see and immediately start feeling more confident.

Improve the Posture

Studies have shown that those who slouch give away the impression of shy and introvert people, unlike the individuals who sit and walk with their back straight and their head up. Next time you walk down the street or have a business interview, keep your back straight and your head up.


The road to high self-confidence is paved with a few lifestyle changes. Start to think positively, help others, be grateful for everything you have, turn the frown upside down, dress sharp, and walk as if you own the streets.

You’ll soon become more confident, and others will notice it too.
