3 Things You Should Do Daily To Increase Your Confidence

Confidence. Some people have it, other people lack it, but everybody wants it. Here are some things you can do each day to increase your confidence level:


1. Do something scary.

Comfort zones are great because, well, they’re comfortable. But if you want to break ceilings and records, you need to make a habit of challenging yourself. Do something that scares you every single day. Whether it’s public speaking or delegating tasks, make a habit of pushing your comfort zone. (Psst! Can’t get hired? Watch this free tutorial.)

2. Dress up.

Have you ever noticed that when you wear certain clothes you feel more confident? Well, your clothes can actually affect your confidence level. Don’t believe me? A recent study found that things like walking in heels, wearing a trouser suit, and wearing lipstick make women feel more confident. Confidence boosters for the guys included wearing shiny shoes, a new suit, and cuff links. So, next time you need a little confidence boost, put on your best blazer and favorite shoes!

3. Move on from your mistakes.

If you constantly agonize over your mistakes, it will be very difficult to get past them and move on to your next challenge. Plus, if you’re constantly focusing on what you’ve done wrong in the past, it can hurt your confidence going forward. Mistakes happen all the time. You can’t avoid it – it’s just a part of life. Recognize them, learn from them, and let them go.

Starting a family is one of the biggest milestones in a person's life. It's in those first few months when a parent can really bond with their newborn and make lifelong memories. However, for some new dads, it can be difficult to juggle being a new parent while remaining dedicated to their career.

Fortunately, some companies have generous paternity leave policies that give new dads the ability to take time off of work to stay home with their child.
