10 Easy Life Hacks for Building Confidence

At SweatBlock, we’re all about helping achieve confidence through stopping the embarrassing effects of excessive underarm sweating. But, we know that stopping sweat is just a “part of the balanced breakfast” when it comes to building self-confidence. So here are 10 easy life hacks to help boost your self-confidence:

BE CLEAN

When we are groomed, fresh, clean-shaven, hair-styled, etc., we tend to feel better about ourselves. It’s a simple step that is the foundation of an confident self image. Most people already have this one mastered, but if you don’t. Git er’ done.

DRESS FOR SUCCESS

When you love what you are wearing, you feel great. Have you ever seen a 3 year old in a Spiderman costume? You have to hold them back from jumping off the balcony. They feel invincible. Same applies for dressing for success. You’ll feel more confident

THINK POSITIVE

Expect great things instead of the worst possible outcome. See greatness instead of folly. Think positively and reject negative thoughts. Not only will you feel more confident, you’ll be find that it is contagious.

ACT POSITIVE

We tell ourselves everyday that it can’t be done, the WE cannot do it. Take the step to conquer that idea, by taking action. Challenge your self-imposed limitations by taking positive actions to overcome.

PREPARE

Do your homework. Get educated. Pay the price. The time you spend preparing will always pay off.

SPEAK SLOWLY

You have great things to say. Say them more slowly. (somewhere in between the turtle and the rabbit) It’s shows confidence and poise. Speaking too fast demonstrates weakness. (unless the house is of fire)

SMILE

Scientifically proven to help you feel better. Infectious and inviting. Just try it. You’ll like it.

STAND CONFIDENTLY

Literally, stand tall and confident. There is power in posture. Square your shoulders. Straighten your neck. One of the world’s best athletes uses posture for power. Watch Ronaldo take free kicks.

SHOW GRATITUDE

Tell the people you love, the people you work with, the people you socialize with that you are grateful for what they do. You’ll feel good and so will they.

BE HONEST

With nothing to hide, you can truly be confident. Live honestly. Work honestly. Play honestly. The truth gives you all sorts of confidence to be the best you.
