10 Tips to Help Boost Your Confidence

#1 When you look good, you feel good

Take time to find the clothes that make you feel good. Even when you are working from home you should take a shower, get dressed in an outfit that makes you feel good, and do your hair and makeup. Whatever you need to do to say, "I feel good!"

Let go of negative self-talk. We all have something about our bodies that we wish we could change.

You know the drill, you get up in the morning, you stand in front of the mirror, and it starts. "Oh, I don't like my thighs." "Why is my skin so wrinkled?" Whatever it is, change the mindset to where you get in front of the mirror, and you're like, "Huh, I have pretty blue eyes. My legs are looking really good today."

Changing your internal self-talk is going to take time. You will have to force yourself to stop mid-sentence, maybe even fake it until you make it. One day you will notice that your negative self-talk is not so loud, that your internal positive compliments come easier.

My Story When I was growing up, I had the nickname "No Chin Sabline". I have a very weak jawline. I did not feel good about my appearance. I constantly felt ugly and unworthy because of my jawline.

I share that with you because of what I had to accomplish to overcome this internal dialog. I realized that my jawline is just one aspect of who I am as a person, and my weak jawline does not make me any lesser of a mother, a partner, a leader, or a business owner.

I had to accept that this was just a trait, something unique about who I was. I spent time trying to figure out other aspects that I loved about myself. I am still insecure about my jawline, but I no longer allow it to define me.

#2 Let Go Of Negative Talk.

You know that voice in your head that tells you all those hurtful, awful things? Maybe you tried something new and you failed. The voice is in there calling you a loser, a failure and whatever else that it wants to talk to you about. You need to put that little bitch in her place and tell her to STOP.
