10 tips for instant self-confidence

1. Smile

The fastest trick I know to get more positive feelings and more self-confidence within seconds. Your mind is connected to your body. One influences the other.

When you feel good and confident, you automatically become more cheerful and get a smile on your face. The other way around is also true. Force a smile and you’ll notice a noticeable change in how you feel and the confidence that comes with it.

Tip: Smile as wide and as strong as you can. Raise both arms as if you just crossed the finish line first in a triathlon and clench your fists as hard as you can.

2. Belly breathing

When you are excited, you notice it the fastest: your pulse increases drastically, your breathing becomes shallow and hectic. The body shifts into a highly aroused state where it becomes difficult to keep a cool head. But you can specifically influence this physical state with a little practice. And this by means of the correct breathing technique.

As soon as you notice your body shifting into an aroused state, consciously begin to slow your breathing and breathe deeply into your lower abdomen. Inhale through the nose and exhale through the mouth.

Concentrate consciously on your breathing and where the airflow in your body is going. Feel your belly expand and the air rush out as you exhale. Breathe rhythmically and slowly. It helps me to make a sigh of relief when I do this. This works wonders!

3. Strong posture

As with tip #1, it is again about influencing your emotional state and thus your sense of self-confidence through your posture. Consciously straighten up.

Straight back, head up, look straight ahead. Think shoulders back down into the back pockets of your pants. Chest out. Think of a third eye on your chest that wants to look upwards. Knees are slightly bent and general posture is still relaxed and flexible despite all the straightening.

Think yourself 10% taller than you actually are and make that posture as strong and steady as possible. Think of a tornado coming at you and you would walk right through it in this posture and nothing would happen to you. It must feel this strong! Everything else flies away, only you stay put.

4. Run 25% faster

How does a focused, confident person run compared to a depressed, aimless person?? The answer is simple: confident people are generally more energetic on the road. They know where they want to go. You have a direction and are walking towards the goal full of energy, confidence and cheerfulness.

Do like them!

There’s probably nothing easier to cheer yourself up than just shifting gears while walking. You will automatically feel more energetic, important and self-confident. Give it a try! Next time walk faster through the alleys, with a purposeful look and step.

5. Do sports

Take time for yourself and for your body. When you’re in an energy slump, you automatically feel sluggish and insecure. How can you be confident?

The solution: go outside and do some exercise! Go for a jog, swim, bike ride or just go for a walk. You will feel much better afterwards – stronger and with more energy and zest for life to tackle your tasks.

You not only get your body moving, but you also do something for yourself and your condition. Also, you get a little positive experience on top of that, that you have already accomplished something today. There is nothing better!

6. Get in the front row

Everywhere you look, in the schools, lecture halls and meeting rooms of this world, people are mostly sitting in the back rows. You are afraid to be noticed and prefer to stay invisible. This behavior not only shows low self-esteem, but also reinforces it.

So don’t be one of these. Decide from now on to always take one of the front seats – even if the event has already started. So you fight that irrational fear that something bad might happen if others suddenly notice you, and at the same time you build up your self-confidence.

From now on the front places are your home. Promise?

7. Say it

It is unbelievable how few people actually open their mouths to say something. Most people just sit there and do nothing, then you can’t do anything wrong (I know that only too well, I was like that once). They fear being judged by others if they say something "stupid".

This fear is totally overrated. The people around you are much more open and accepting than you think. You can’t say anything "wrong" at all. The reality is that these people are just as scared as you are and are usually extremely happy when someone else asks/says what has been on their mind all along.

So, again, if you want to get ahead, speak up and say it! Bring in your ideas. Say what you think about this or that. Share your opinion. Nothing bad can happen!

8. Gratitude

Think about what you are thankful for in life. You may be surprised how effective this tip is. Just by consciously focusing on the things that are really great in your life, you can build up your emotional state and your self-confidence.

Start with yourself. What are you thankful for? What do you appreciate in life? Make yourself clear what you have already achieved everything!

And now don’t tell me there is nothing you are thankful for. I do not believe it. There are certainly a lot of things, you just have to think a little bit and make yourself aware of it (you have e.g. a lot of things).B. a computer on which you read this and with which you can get all the information in the world to your home – for that you can be thankful).

It doesn’t always have to be the most earth-shattering things either. On the contrary: the smallest things are often the best ones.

Then go one step further and think about all the things you are grateful for in your environment (family/friends/profession). Consciously focus on the positive things and not on what upsets you or doesn’t work out. This is all about what you are thankful for in life.

Then go one step further and think about what you find great in this world and in this fascinating life, in this unique moment.

9. Compliment the people around you

When we are not satisfied with ourselves, we often project that dissatisfaction onto other people. To interrupt this negative behavior (which, by the way, doesn’t get you any further and only reinforces the negativity in your life), get into the habit of giving compliments to other people.

Of course you should be honest about it and really mean what you say. Then these people will not only like you more for it, but you will also automatically strengthen your self-confidence.

Because if you always try to see the best in the other person, then you indirectly bring out the best in yourself as well. Not to mention, giving compliments in the beginning can also be a challenge that expands your comfort zone.

10. Contribute something to this world

There’s no better feeling than that of having meaning in life. Make a difference. To be important for other people. Contributing something, to society, to this world we live in. Unfortunately, we are far too often preoccupied with ourselves, our own wants and needs, and of course, our "flaws" and "shortcomings".

Therefore, start focusing more on what you can give to this world and the people around you. Then you will not only reap their gratitude, but also dissolve your own self-consciousness bit by bit.

Your confidence in yourself and the world will increase and you will have this great feeling of contributing, of being important to someone, of making a difference.

The more you give to this world and your fellow human beings, the more you will get back in the end!
