We all have quirks that set us apart from others...here are my favourites!
1. CHOOSE TO BE REAL OVER BEING PERFECT
Others aren't impressed or interested in your attempt to be perfect, in fact, you become infinitely more relatable, interesting and approachable when you let your imperfections show! Taking the pressure off allows you to relax and be confident in who you are and makes you more likeable.
2. LIFE OTHERS UP
Build others up and bring them along for the ride. Edifying your peers makes them feel secure and positive in your presence. Highting their positive traits and putting others in the spotlight rather than yourself strengthens relationships and makes everyone feel confident!
Remember, a rising tide lifts all the boats in the harbour.
3. BE SELF-AWARE
Being aware of how your thoughts, words and actions affect others can have a dramatic impact on how confident you feel in a crowd. Are you able to make others feel awesome in your presence? If so, you're killing it! If not, no worries, do the work and learn the things about yourself you need to level-up (which means staying open to constructive feedback). Avoid speaking negatively about yourself or others. Nothing robs you of confidence and credibility faster and you won't show up as your best self regardless of the situation you are in.
4. STAY HUNGRY FOR SELF-IMPROVEMENT
Own your need for constant self-improvement and get excited about growing in new directions. Your commitment to yourself will show others that you are teachable and help you to take responsibility for your own success! Become comfortable leveling-up!

5. SAY NO MORE OFTEN
Stop feeling the need to please others - your worth is not tied up in others' opinions of you. Simply, stop this.
Saying yes to everything and then feeling bitter or flustered when you realize that you can't keep your commitments AND maintain your sanity, creates more stress and discomfort than saying no in the first place. You must say no to the wrong things so you can say yes to the right ones. You can’t do it all so please stop trying. Saying no to others is ultimately saying yes to yourself and to what matters most to you. You'll end up feeling more confident and focused and less overwhelmed.
6. ASK FOR HELP
Learn how to gracefully receive it. Be the example. No one who really excels at life does it all on their own. Asking for and accepting assistance allows your confidence to shine while influencing others in a positive way.
7. FEEL THE FEAR & DO IT ANYWAY
Feel the fear and honour it, just don’t let it stop you. The only thing holding you back from the life of your dreams is YOU. Whatever it is that you fear - fear of judgment, fear of the journey, fear of failure...or even fear of success, you can’t let fear control your actions.
Taking ACTION kills fear and makes your CONFIDENCE SOAR!
Be patient. Practice. It takes time.
