In our last post, we talked about habits of women who are never broke and how they manage their money.In today’s post, we are talking about habits of the most confident women.
I am sure you have a vivid image in your head of what a confident woman looks like. And I know this is different for everyone of you reading this, but one thing is in common and that is that we all look up to that image and want to be like her.
You know how some women light up the room they are in? Yes, you could be one of those women too. But, first things first, being confident takes time and practise. It won’t happen overnight. But the good part is that it’s a habit and over time you can cultivate it.
Imagine being confident and how it would change your life. You’d definitely take more chances with your life, be more content with where you are and what you have.
So these are habits and some daily practices that you can do, which, over time will help boost your confidence. They will help you believe in yourself more and go after things that you never thought were possible.
And because we are all about personal growth and self development, and we truly believe that being more confident will help you go after the life that you deserve, so here are the habits that all confident women have in common:
1.She has clear goals & Plans:
A confident women not only knows here dreams and plans, but she works towards them. She knows exactly what her dreams are and what goals will help her get there.
And then she works towards achieving those goals. Creating goals and plans in one thing, but it doesn’t work unless you take action. So be clear about what your goals are, divide that into smaller steps and work towards achieving that goal.
2. She is not afraid of judgement from people:
A confident woman is not afraid of judgement from other people. she does not make decisions based on what other people might think. She doesn’t hold herself back because of other’s opinions.
She goes after her dreams without the fear of being judged because she knows that people are going to always judge you no matter what.
So often we get so caught up on what others say behind our backs and waste so much of our time and energy into trying to change their opinion of us. but a confident woman knows her worth and knows that people are going to talk anyway and it doesn’t define who she is. And no matter what, she can’t please everyone around her or change everyone’s perception.
3.She is not Afraid to say “NO”
We get so many messages, emails, requests and opportunities through social media these days and how we respond to them determines how much we can get done in our day. And a confident woman is not afraid to say no. She doesn’t fear that people will be displeased or think she is rude. She just knows her priorities and knows that her time is not worth that opportunity.
We know that saying “NO” isn’t always easy and it requires practise, but saying No to things that don’t matter means saying yes to other things. It means that you value your time too much to waste it on worthless things.
The easiest way to say NO without offending anyone is to simply tell the truth. And even though that might be a little uncomfortable at times, it’s best to be clear and a confident knows that and puts it to practice.
4. She lifts others up:
A confident woman doesn’t believe in bringing people down and she knows that she can grow in life without pulling others down. She truly believes in lifting others up around her, especially other women.
She understands the importance of encouraging and supporting others and knows that their success will not affect hers. A confident woman doesn’t compare herself with others and doesn’t get jealous of other people’s achievements. She uplifts and encourages those around her.
This is one of the qualities that all confident women have in common. They don’t look down on others and they know how to take other along as they grow themselves. They usually make amazing bosses because they understand the value of investing in people and lifting other’s up.
