1. Become more aware of yourself
The first step to having more confidence is to understand yourself. It may sound stupid but think about it; how often do you actually take the time to think about who you are, what you do and how all these smaller actions combine to form a person?
2. Be proud of your achievements
So you’re not exactly what you want to be yet? You longed to be a prodigal tooth bonding dentist but you’re just a junior practitioner, dreaming of the day that you get that shiny office with your name on the door. Well, how much have you already accomplished? You’ve worked hard at school, aced your dental degree and built up a really good portfolio of experience. That’s more than many people will ever achieve!
3. Stop avoiding your problems
If you leave things unresolved, they’ll play on your mind until you sort them out. Worse than that, the longer that you leave them, the worse that they’ll get. If you really want to believe in yourself, you have to take a leap of faith and deal with the issues that scare you.
4. Work on it
Nobody’s perfect, but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t strive to better yourself. When you have a problem, if possible, then try and work on it. Got a massive deadline coming up? Use all the time you would spend fretting to tackle the issue and get it done. Worried that you may have ruined a relationship with a friend or family member? Write them a letter, buy the some flowers, do something that shows you are willing to put the effort in.
5. Treat yourself
Obviously you shouldn’t be reliant on clothes or cosmetics for your self esteem, but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t treat yourself. Everyone knows that a good suit can make a man invincible but there’s a whole host of things that may improve your life. Getting ABB treatment for example, will give you a winning smile and help reinforce your newfound confidence. You want to look as self assured on the outside as you feel within.
6. Set yourself some goals
If you’ve got a long project going on, or you work in a job that lacks any sense of achievement then take matters into your own hands. Plan to have so many articles written by the end of the day, aim to make 10 customers smile, hit that sales target. Even small things like this can really give you a boost.
7. Straighten up
If you hold yourself well, you’ll feel better. It may seem silly, but try it. When you keep your chin up and your back straight, you may well find that people look at your differently. It’s one of the best ways to project confidence to others and show them that you mean business. 8. Contribute
Get involved in something that you’re passionate about. Join a club or forum for your passion and create something that other people will want to look at and comment on. Just having other people appreciate your work can be hugely uplifting.
9. Relax and empty your mind for a little bit
Smiling more often will improve your life. Try it now and feel the little rush of happiness it brings. If you’ve taken our advice and been treated yourself to an appointment with the tooth whitening dentist, then you’ll want to show off those new pearly whites too!
