While many say content is King, I would have to say that as an entrepreneur, confidence is Czar.
When we show confidence, we are attractive. Confidence tells others that we have something they want. They will be drawn to us to try to attain a piece of the “confidence” pie.
Sometimes confidence is not an easy thing to have, especially if and when everything seems to be going wrong. During those times, confidence can actually help everything “turn around,” and start going right.
So in today’s post, I am going to give you 5 ways to boost your confidence.
“You are the only person on earth who can use your ability.” Zig Ziglar
#1 Way To Boost Your Confidence: Grooming & Dress
While I am sure the majority of readers here do keep themselves well-groomed, I think it still needs to be mentioned. Those little things like showering, shaving, brushing teeth and wearing deodorant can make a huge difference in your personal confidence.
And wear clothing that is sharp!
“Make-up is the last thing to enhance your beauty, but it’s very important because it builds up your self-confidence and gives you more courage.” Evelyn Lauder
#2 Way To Boost Your Confidence: Take Negative Influences Out Of Your Life
One of the biggest confidence “killers” are the negative influences around us. Maybe it is time to take some of those influences out of your life.
I know there are just some negative people you cannot erase, but making a decision to stay clear of them can do your confidence great good.
“If you have no confidence in self, you are twice defeated in the race of life. With confidence, you have won even before you have started.” Cicero
#3 Way To Boost Your Confidence: Do It Straight
Consider how you walk, is it straight? Do you hold your head up and walk with firmness?
And how do you sit? Do you slump or do you sit straight?
Straight = confidence, so walk and sit straight.

#4 Way To Boost Your Confidence: Ask For Help
If you are trying to complete a task or project that is giving you a hard time, don’t allow it to defeat you and knock your confidence down. Just ask for help. There are people willing to help so don’t allow your ego to destroy your confidence.

Just pretend you have more confidence than all and the self confidence will grow inside you.
