6. Take action

6. Take action

Fear can be paralyzing. Ignore the voice in your head telling you that you can't do something, and take action anyway.

10. Embrace the power of body language

Body language speaks much louder than words. When you're feeling down on yourself, change your posture: Pull your shoulders back, hold your head high, stand with your feet wide and put your hands in the air like a superhero.

Ashley Anthony

Shankul Varada
