Listen to bass-heavy music

Bass-heavy music can actually trick your mind into feeling more confident.

One study revealed job-interview candidates who listened to bass-heavy rap music ended up exhibiting more confidence and performing better than those who didn't.

Groom yourself

Making yourself more pleasing to your own eyes can make you feel more confident.

When you need some extra confidence, head to a mirror and apply some makeup, fix your hair and otherwise tidy up your appearance a bit.

Take a "power posture"

Our posture can have a significant effect on our internal dialogue.

A "power posture" pose, held for several seconds to several minutes, can increase your confidence in almost any situation.

Do something you're good at

We feel confident when we do something successful. On the other hand, if we fail to succeed, we might feel insecure for a while.

Get ahead of this process by doing something ahead of time that you know you're good at.

Remember a powerful moment

If you need an extra boost of confidence, visualize yourself in a past moment where you actually did have confidence, or you felt powerful.
