Confidence plays a huge role in your success — eliminating these bad habits will immediately boost your self-esteem.
Stop expecting perfection.
American journalist, activist, author of six best-selling books Maria Shriver once said, “Perfectionism doesn’t make you feel perfect; it makes you feel inadequate.”
A great deal of how our mind functions can be influenced by what our body is telling it to do. Not only does our body language send a message to others, but it also sends a message to ourselves.
Stop being lazy with your wardrobe.
Studies show that our mental state is linked with our wardrobe — if you wear an outfit associated with successful people, you’ll look, feel, and speak like a successful person. And if you dress like a “hot mess,” you’ll most likely act the part too.
Stop comparing yourself to others.
“Comparison is the thief of joy” — Theodore Roosevelt
Stop dwelling on your failures.
“The difference between successful people and others is how long they spend time feeling sorry for themselves.” — Barbara Corcoran
Stop letting others influence your self-esteem.
Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
Stop fearing the unknown.
The phrase “A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for,” is truer than ever for your confidence.
