5 Easy Ways to Build Self-Confidence

Practice these 5 easy, daily confidence boosters for a fulfilled, positive life!

While self-confidence may seem to come naturally for some people, feeling comfortable in your own skin is a skill we all have to learn. Having more confidence in your abilities and the value you bring to others creates a positive momentum in your life that can make you unstoppable.

Robin Marvel, a multi-published author and presenter in the field of self-development, had her first daughter at a very young age and made it her personal mission to be a good role model. She is now the mother of five girls ranging in age from 3 to 18. She shares her top five tips for growing your confidence daily by learning to see the beauty in every part of yourself.

1. Affirm Your Worth Daily
“You are an amazing, beautiful, complete person – no matter your childhood, your present or past choices,” says Robin. Take a moment daily to acknowledge your worth.

2. Dress for Success
Do you remember the last time you dressed up or got a great haircut? Robin doesn’t suggest dressing to the nines every day, but she does suggest putting in the effort with your appearance. “Wake up each day, brush your hair, and put on clothes you feel great in. Don’t live in stretched or faded old clothes.” She candidly admits that for her, dressing for success means a pair of jeans that fit just right and an ironed T-shirt.

Tip: Keep your confidence-boosting clothing clean and smelling fresh with our recommended laundry-care regimen: Use Tide PODS with Downy to clean clothing, brighten and protect, and add Unstopables in-wash scent booster to the load for up to 12 weeks of irresistibly fresh scent. Skip the ironing board by drying loads with a Bounce dryer sheet to prevent static and wrinkles.

3. Maintain a Happy Shopping List
Create a list of 15 things that instantly bring a smile to your face. Maybe it’s your favorite dessert in the fridge or a beautiful plant in your living room. Update your list daily. As you change your focus to being happy, it will uplift your mood and shift the negative to a positive.

4. Try Random Acts of Kindness
Robin believes that being kind to others is an easy, foolproof way to boost confidence because it puts you in control. “Being kind to others directly reflects who you are as a person. It gives you the opportunity to imprint another’s life and start a kindness ripple.”

Smile at strangers, hold the door open for others, send a handwritten letter to an old friend and say thank you.

5. Learn, Grow, Explore
Find ways to challenge yourself daily. This tip is about building mastery, which builds self-esteem. Step out of your comfort zone and be brave. “I always tell my girls that the world is so big, and so full of opportunity, that they should never feel limited. There is always a way!”

Remember that what you say to yourself has much more power than what others say to you. If you catch yourself being negative and self-critical, take a moment to stop, listen to what you are saying and replace the negative words with positive ones.
