Don't Use Words And Expressions That Make You Sound Unsure

Reminisce a Time When You Felt Confident

Reminisce a Time When You Felt Confident

Right before you do something you feel nervous about, try going back to a previous experience where you had an optimal level of energy, focus and achievement.

Replay and review the event in your mind. What were you doing? Who was there? What was the response you got from others? How did you feel when it was over?

Take that positive energy and confidence with you back to the present.

Get Off Social Media. Right Now!

Get Off Social Media. Right Now!

Confidence comes from believing in yourself, your own abilities, and where you are in your personal journey.

Don’t go on social media when you’re feeling unsure of yourself or when you’re about to do something challenging. Its so easy to fall prey to posts that for the most part do not reflect reality. Comparing yourself to people who are only sharing the “glamorous” side of their lives makes it difficult to clearly see the positive side of yours.

Instead, grab a journal and write about the things you’ve accomplished that you’re proud of.

Whatever it may be: a dress, a suit, a pair of jeans, or piece of jewelry that makes you feel fabulous and powerful; put it on and transform yourself into the most confident and powerful version of you.

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
