6 things Highly Confident Women Do Differently
Everywhere we look, most of us have examples of confident women in our lives. They can be a friend, family member, or someone we have admired from afar but haven't met yet. There is often an attraction that draws us to this person, mainly due to their self-assurance, their style and positive outlook.
These women seem to have resistance against adversity in the way they live their lives and have the ability to turn stumbling blocks into a stepping stone to self-fulfilment and happiness.
Have you ever wondered what their secret is to believe in themselves?
Listed below are six rules confident women live by to enjoy more confidence.
1. Confident women embrace their purpose
Confident women know their strengths well and make sure they put themselves in both personal and professional situations where they can utilise these skills. Confident women 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 make every mistake into a personal learning experience.
2. They practice a self-confident habits
Confident women are always backing themselves with an internal pep-talk whenever they need a little extra confidence, no matter what it is about, work, family, relationships or life, which is what makes these women stand out from others.
Whether the habit entails positive thoughts while looking at themselves in the mirror or wearing quality clothes that help them feel fabulous inside and out, (buying less, buying better). Confident women know what rituals works for them when they need to gift themselves a boost. And the best part, more importantly, they are not afraid to use it.
3. They love spending time alone
Rather than always having to be with someone, confident women enjoy spending time alone, mainly to relax and feel free of others’ obligations. Confident women are also inspired to go out alone, whether it is to enjoy a coffee, lunch or catch a movie or show.
Confident women cherish their friends and family, but also realise that it is essential to enjoy “me” time, where they can openly indulge themselves. The more you indulge on you, the more you can gift to others.
4. They don't buy into the media’s image of a perfect woman.
Confident women do not let the media dictate their physical appearances or behaviours. They realise that it is all false advertising. They don't buy into the photoshopping of images and made up lifestyles. Instead, they enjoy lifestyle choices and focus on what they want and how they want to be perceived.
Confident women 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 ask empowering questions.
Another item confident women have is asking questions that make them better individual and have a direct correlation to their self-fulfilment. They realise that asking themselves the “why me” question is detrimental to their well-being and contentment in life.
They eliminate the broken negative record playing in many womens heads, to replace it with positive questions and affirmations like "what am I going to learn today?" or "what goals would I like to achieve?" and "what steps do I need to take today to make myself happier?" and then they follow through with actions.
6. They want to know what they can do to improve the world.
They are asking themselves how they can use their strengths to make the world in a better place.
The selflessness action of caring for themselves so they can care for others 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.
Here are some wise words from a confident woman I admire, the gorgeous Oprah Winfrey.
“Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough.”
“Surround yourself with only people who are going to lift you higher.”
“The biggest adventure you can ever take is to live the life of your dreams.”
