I wasn’t the prettiest girl in the room, but I learned to carry myself with confidence – that’s how you make the best impression on people – Priyanka Chopra.
Confidence means feeling sure of yourself and your abilities – believing in yourself and in your ability to succeed. Confidence isn’t about feeling superior to others; it’s a quiet inner knowledge that you’re capable. It is a state of mind that comes from feelings of well-being.
Confidence has nothing to do with having the prettiest face, a huge bank account or an enormous walk-in closet, but a lot to do with how you face and live each day that comes your way.
Being confident doesn’t mean to be rude and sassy, it means waking up every morning, looking in the mirror, having a nice attitude, standing tall, looking into people’s eyes, facing your fears and living to your full potentials.
Below are the habits of a super confident woman. You don’t need to have all of them, just a few, and you are on your way to leading a happy, confident life.
HABITS OF A CONFIDENT WOMAN
- She takes care of herself within her means
A confident woman lives simply or largely, just according to her income. She doesn’t live beyond her means to impress others. Her confidence does not come from the abundance of things she possesses.
- Decision making
Confident women understand the power of decisions, so they take time to make decisions that will direct the course of their lives. They don’t let people or society decide for them, they make their own decisions and bear the consequences
- She takes responsibility for her actions
Insecurity makes one deny, excuse or cover up mistakes. A confident woman owns up to her mistakes and tries to do better next time. She doesn’t blame others for her actions and mistakes.
- She is not afraid of failure
A confident woman doesn’t allow the fear of failure to stop her from achieving her goals. She doesn’t hesitate to asking seek help. She understands that failing at something is an opportunity to learn and do it again differently.
- She is not afraid of being alone
A confident woman does not seek validation and love from people at the expense of her peace of mind. She’d rather be alone than remain in a toxic relationship.
- She communicates effectively
A confident woman holds conversations on variety of topics and is always curious to know more. She is easily approachable, has a positive body language and is easy to speak to.
- She embraces her imperfections
Nobody has it all. Being confident means feeling good even if you can’t do it all and don’t have it all.
A confident woman is not afraid to ask for help when necessary. Asking for help doesn’t mean you are weak and unintelligent, it simply means there are limits to your perfections, thereby creating some gaps and you need someone to fill it.
- She is not afraid to say NO
When it’s time to say no, confident women do not feel bad, beat about the bush, stall or say “I don’t think I can” or “I’m not certain.”
They say no with confidence. They don’t hurt themselves to please others. Confident women are not people pleasers.
- She steps out of her comfort zone
A confident woman isn’t comfortable in her comfort zone. She challenges herself to achieve more. She sets new goals for herself, and works towards achieving them.
When a woman exudes confidence, she reminds us of how good we are and how great we can be. Whether you consider yourself a confident woman or look up to one, it’s no secret that we’re all inspired by them and wish to be like them. Why not stay true to Helen Keller – Never bend your head. Always hold it high. Look the world straight in the eye!
