7 Things Highly Confident Women Do Differently
We all have examples of confident women in our lives, whether it be a family member, a friend or someone we have not met but admire from afar. We are instantly drawn to this person by their self-assurance and positive outlook on themselves.
They seem resilient against adversity in their lives and turn each stumbling block into a stepping stone to self-fulfilment and happiness. Wonder what their secrets are to believing in themselves? Here are seven rules that they live by to live more confidently.
1. They embrace their purpose
These women know their strengths well and make sure they put themselves in both personal and professional situations where they can utilise these skills. They focus on what they excel in, more than dwelling on their weaknesses.
They acknowledge that they have imperfections but realise this is part of being human and they take every mistake and turn it into a personal learning experience.
2. They practice a self-confident ritual
Giving themselves a pep-talk whenever they need a little extra confidence, either before a big work presentation or even working through a fight with a loved one, is what make these women stand out.
Whether the ritual entails affirmations while looking at themselves in the mirror or putting on a special outfit that makes them feel good inside and out, these women know what routine works for them when they need a confidence boost. And, more importantly, they are not afraid to use it.
3. They enjoy spending time alone
Rather than always having to be with someone, they enjoy a few moments to themselves during the day to relax and feel free of others’ obligations. Confident women are also empowered by going out alone, whether it is to see a movie or enjoy a leisurely dinner at a local restaurant.
These women cherish their friends and family, but also realise that it is essential to have their “me” time, where they can shamelessly indulge themselves. And they can always be social when they are ready.
4. They refuse to buy into the media’s image of a perfect woman
These women do not let the media dictate their physical appearances or behaviours, because they know that it is all false advertising. These women are confident in their lifestyle choices, whether they decide to get married and have a family or not and the type of career they choose to follow.
They do not feel the need to be stick thin, but instead, they know the value of a healthy body and an active lifestyle.
5. They refuse to take anything to personally
Letting the hard days and moments in their lives roll off their shoulders is what defines these women because they know how to keep everything in perspective. Women who have confidence always see the bright light at the end of the tunnel and refuse to wallow in their pity because they know it will only harm them in the end.
Confident women are also aware that they cannot control other people’s emotions, only their own, and that is what matters.
6. They ask empowering questions
Asking questions that make them better individual and have a direct correlation to their self-fulfilment is another thing that these women have in common. They realise that asking themselves the “why me” question is detrimental to their well-being and contentment in life.
They make sure to eliminate the broken negative record (that plays in all of our heads) and replace it with positive questions like “what do I need to do to be happier in life?” and then follow through with immediate actions.
7. They ask what they can do to improve the world
Asking themselves how they can use their strengths to make the world a better place is a common trait for these women.
This selflessness is one of the critical factors for confident women since they know what they are capable of and would like to share their talents with others.
