Spring is one of my favorite seasons because it’s all about new beginnings. After a brutally cold winter, flowers are starting to bloom and the temperatures are getting warmer. Like Mother Nature, we can also create new beginnings for ourselves and bring a little extra sunshine into our lives. Creating the life of our dreams begins and ends with confidence, so I wanted to share three simple steps that will make you feel unstoppable. Start practicing each one, and I know you’ll be on your way to feeling your most confident!
- Stop Comparing Yourself To Others.
Hands down, this is my number one tip to living a more confident life. If you’re looking at someone else and telling yourself “I could never be as (fill in the blank with whatever nonsense you tell yourself!) as them” you’re discrediting yourself big time. You have talents and gifts that no one else does, so start owning them! The world needs your unique gifts – not you being a copycat version of someone else. Another key tip to help you with this principle is to limit the amount of time you spend on social media channels (ahem Facebook!). When you spend time peering into someone else’s life, you’re wasting that much time not living your own.
- Embrace Beauty & Fashion To Feel Unstoppable.
Beauty and style are powerful tools that can increase your confidence and self-esteem. How incredible do you feel with a beautiful white smile? Or what about knowing that you can have a clear, radiant complexion with the right skincare products? And that feeling when you wear a great pair of stilettos that make you look long and lean? Embracing self-care and carving out time each day for you will make you feel valued. And remember my mantra – you don’t need to spend a lot of $$$ to look your best! There are so many incredible products right in your drugstore. Check out my video segments on my Twitter page for some of my top drugstore picks!
- Don’t Waste Any Time Thinking About People Who Don’t Like You.
Not everyone is going to like you – recognize this and keep it moving! Yes, it never feels good to be mistreated or the target of someone’s misery, so it’s critical to recognize toxic people and remove them from your life. Surround yourself with positive people who provide support and encouragement.
