If you want to look, feel and act more confidently in your life — whether in your personal life, your relationships or in your career — it’s important to know some of the common traits that confident people share. By knowing what to do, as well as what NOT to do, you can build your inner sense of strength, resilience and confidence, no matter where you are in life.
1. Confident People Don’t Devalue Themselves
One of the most core, foundational mindsets that all confident people share is that they’re worth it. This isn’t coming from a place of ego or overconfidence, though. Instead, confident people know that their inherent value and self-worth is equal to everyone else around them.
This gives you the same right as everyone else to stand up for what you want, declare your vision for your life, and work hard towards achieving your goals, all while knowing deep down that you deserve it!
2. Confident People Don’t Wait for the Right Time or the Right Place
“If you keep waiting for the right time, it may never happen,” said Priya Ardis. “Sometimes you have to make the most of the time you have.” Confident people know this in their soul. They don’t sit and wait for the right time or the big move. Instead, from a place of confidence, they take the steps they need to take to live the life they want to live.
Often, people think of confidence as some sort of big, outward expression, like a change in career or a new romantic relationship. But confidence exerts itself on the daily level, in new habits or new conversations or small changes that boldly move you forward in your life journey.
3. Confident People Aren’t Afraid of Critiques
Many people shy away from conflict, disagreement and critiques, but confident people see this as mere feedback loops that help them to improve. Because they already see their self-worth for what it is - of equal value with everyone - they can hear feedback without the unwarranted fear of rejection or self-doubt.
When you receive criticism and feedback, express gratitude for this chance to improve, take from the feedback what is essential for your growth and improvement, and know it means nothing about your own self-worth or inner value.
