How to be more confident

Do you find it difficult to direct your thoughts onto success rather than failure? Or to not be hard on yourself? I have written another article on how to build confidence by changing your perspective and the way at which you approach life, but if you want to start out with some more practical steps, I have put together a little list:


Clean up your desk.

Mess creates stress, and both are among the biggest hindrances to being confident. If you clean up things and put things into order, you will be amazed at the overview you’ll suddenly have. And this will give you a sense of being in control of things and thus build your confidence.



Do something you’ve been postponing. Has something been on your mind for some time, but you haven’t gotten around to do it? Just do it, and you’ll see how good it feels that not only is it done and not pestering you anymore, but also that you can get things out of the way. Being able to say “I did it!” is a big confidence-booster.



Every single guide to confidence on the web includes this and that’s because we all know it works. Science has proven that exercise increases your motivation, energy, willpower, confidence and scores of other benefits. So if you’d like more motivation to get things done, take a walk a couple of times a week. It also helps clearing your thoughts, which in turn will increase your sense of control over your life, which in turn will make you feel more confident in yourself and your abilities.


Stand tall

The mind is irreversibly connected to the body in a symbiotic relationship. Whatever one does affects the other. So standing tall is the body’s way of convincing the mind to be more confident. Just try it. You’ll see.


Make an effort to look good

Groom and dress nicely. This may seem like an obvious daily task that you would do anyway, but have you ever thought about the ramifications? If you dress nicely and look presentable, people will take you more seriously. And if people take you seriously, it means you are worth something to them. Think about that. You mean something to them and what you do holds value. They would be worse off without you.
