How to Get Your Confidence Back in 5 Minutes or Less

How to Get Your Confidence Back in 5 Minutes or Less

 1. Hold a high power pose for two minutes.

Try this superhero pose: Stand up straight, shoulders back, chin up with hands placed on your waist and legs hip-width apart. Feel yourself powerful and hold that pose for two minutes while taking deep breaths. You can also try a starfish-like pose where you raise your hands up in the air into a “V” shape and imagine yourself the victor at an Olympic event.

2. See the big picture of your life via your future self.

While it may seem arbitrary, having a long-term vision of yourself, even in your mind’s eye, can potentially put things into perspective. In the event of saving for retirement, for instance, before we’re likely to invest in ourselves, we have to like and respect our future selves. It helps to have a clear picture of who that would be.

3. Practice gratitude now and in the future.

Practicing gratitude is a way to gain perspective after a setback. Replace a statement like “I want two new clients this month” with “I am so happy and grateful for two new amazing, paid-in-full clients.” This specific phrasing pulls what you want toward you.

  1. Implementing the power pose is an excellent way to boost the confidence when it is lacking. Standing tall, throwing the shoulders back, and smiling can truly change your mindset. You forget that a moment ago the situation looked bleak because you now feel that it might just be possible. I am performing research on the topic of Confidence and would greatly appreciate it if you would take the time to fill out my survey. https://melaniefellmanwrites.wordpress.com/2016/04/08/a-survey/

  2. I love the second one about seeing the bigger picture from your future self. Everything diminishes in energy when you view the bigger picture – and through your future self, subconsciously shows you that you’ve survived whatever it is that you’re going through. Great advice here 🙂 With love, Sharon

  3. They all sound like great ideas, but suggestion #1 should probably be done in private, if at all possible. (Imagine assuming either pose while waiting to be called in for a job interview or before giving a big sales presentation!)

  4. Timely and ever-needed motivation. Our world fails in many respects to teach and promote the hallowed goal of loving self. And yet it’s that self-love that ultimately makes or breaks us. Liked the post.
