5 amazing and easy tips to increase confidence level

Confidence? How do you define confidence? or how can one say that you are a confident girl? Confidence is essential to stand above the crowd. Google defines it as “the feeling or belief that one can have faith in or rely on someone or something,” but the practical meaning of confidence is much more than it. Many women prepare well for the job interview but don’t get it because they couldn’t represent their knowledge and personality well. Many girls get nervous during college competitions and eventually lose due lack of confidence in themselves.

As a woman, it’s an inbuilt feature that we worry more about our looks, knowledge, personality, and abilities. Most of the women always doubt their individual personalities which decrease their self-confidence. Confidence is more about who are you rather than what you want to be! Here, Womenlite wants every woman to feel confident about themselves and thus we present you:

5 Easy tips to increase confidence level

1. Dress up well.



You don’t have to dress up to impress anyone. Dress up well means that you have to dress up the way you want to get addressed. No matter what the event is, you must dress up in a way that whenever you look yourself in the mirror, you always gain some amount of confidence. It’s not for anyone else, not your classmates, your colleagues, your boss, your friends or even your boyfriend. It’s for you!!

2. Don’t try to please.


Never try to be someone what you’re not. Fakeness is not welcome and you’ll end up messing things. You don’t have to please everyone, you can’t, no one can! Sticking to yourself and being proud of it, is the first step towards a confident life. For instance, if you don’t like to put on makeup but your other classmates do, don’t try to become one of them in order to be with them. It’s all about choices of living life in a certain way.

3. Don’t doubt on your appearance.


Most of the women are never satisfied on how they look and want to change or modify their looks in the desire to look prettier than the rest.  Well, it’s the high time to realize and believe that everyone is beautiful in their way. Obviously, being fit is good and maintaining a good physique also benefit you internally but you don’t have to constantly criticize yourself for being chubby.


4. Stop being anxious.


It is found that women are more anxious than men and anxiety can never let you build your confidence. Anxiety about anything leads to disturbance in mental well-being. Confidence is more related mentally! Situations happen and you can’t control your tension because it doesn’t contribute anything good to the situation. So, how not to feel anxious? Just trust yourself that you can deal with the situation and your one thought can uplift your confidence and courage. So, here is something to encourage you-

The simplest thing to increase your level of confidence is just ‘BE YOU.’ You have been learning so many things since your birth and no one is exactly similar to each other. You may have your own ideology and mindset which may not fit in the norms of the society but that doesn’t isolate you from it. You can happily stay within the society by creating your own individuality. Remember your different takes on fashion, love, career, marriage etc, separates you from the stereotypes!

So, a simple short and sweet message is that being confident is just about believing yourself and your capabilities.

    Thanks for sharing this motivational post. Honestly, I am guilty of having doubt in my appearance and anxious all the time. I don’t have the confidence to wear the clothes that I want and also wearing makeup.

  • Jeenu Pillai

    For a decade my mother thought that confidence is something that comes naturally. She has always been conscious of herself. She would never wear something that would actually look good on her just because she isn’t confident enough. Also the fact that we live in India and women in general here are taught not to do what they want to but to listen to the men around. Not her fault. But off late, she has begun to understand it is absolutely necessary to love yourself and do what you feel is good for you. Your posts reminds me the tremendous change that my mother has gone through. I just hope i am making sense.

  • David Elliott

    Mostly it comes down to acceptance of who you are and not trying to be who you are not. This is such an important thing to know in order to improve confidence.
