Confidence...a lucky few are born with it, the rest us have to work on it. It's not as hard as you think it is though, thanks to uplifting posts like Angel's.

"To wish you were someone else is to waste the person you are." - Kurt Cobain. You are remarkable and wonderful, have confidence in this and let others see it on you. There is always one thing that looks great on you at all times, and that is confidence, so wear it well. Here are a few ways to wear your confidence.

1 Your Smile

Your face and especially your lips are the first place that you should wear your confidence. Your smile says more about you than you can imagine. Wear a smile on your lips as often as you can, learn to smile, smile when you say hello to people, learn to find something to smile about. When you become conscious of this, it will be a surprise to you to find that there are more things to smile about than to frown about. A smile brightens up your day and makes someone else feel much better. In short, you can never go wrong with a smile.

2 Find Something to Admire in Yourself

Look for your best qualities and admire them. When someone gives you a compliment, accept it, don’t be suspicious or begin analyzing whether they really meant it or what they really meant. A compliment is just that, a compliment. Stop deflecting praise!

3 Check That Posture

It is common knowledge that your pose, posture and stance say a lot about what you think about yourself. It is easy to read your attitude from your posture and the way you carry yourself. Do not slouch, walk upright and with your head held high, stand tall and make others take notice that you are there.

4 Be Yourself

Ok, you really don’t want to be someone else, you will end up being a poor imitation of someone else. You have unique qualities and features, focus on these and celebrate them. Love who you are and let others see and know the real you -- no pretense or gimmicks, just you.

5 Do What You Love

When you are happy, there is a glow about you that radiates from within you. When you are doing something that you love, you are confident and happy and it will become obvious to everyone else.

6 Be Friendly

Wear your confidence in your approach to people and in the way you relate with them. Say hello, make conversations and learn about others. Make eye contact when you talk to people and don’t shy away from meeting new people. You are interesting and fascinating and people deserve to know you.

7 A Splash O’ Colour

Colour gives beauty to things and makes them vibrant and full of life. Don’t blend into the background. Dull colours make life boring and dreary and sour your mood, so it doesn’t matter the season or weather, adding that splash of colour will always brighten up your day. Wearing colour is a great way to wear your confidence.

8 Develop a Great and Positive Attitude

How you respond to situations matter. Don’t let anyone make you feel inferior. Write out your great attributes and affirm them over and over again and believe them. There isn’t much you can do about what is around you but there is a lot you can do about how you respond to situations around you. So keep that smile and great attitude.

9 Look Great

We all know the impact of great fitting outfits on our confidence, so invest in clothes, shoes and items that make you feel sexy and watch the confidence increase. Just be careful, you don’t want to end up a shopaholic. So look great, smell great, be great and let the world take note of you.

"You are as amazing as you let yourself be. Let me repeat that. You are as amazing as you let yourself be." – Elizabeth Alraune. Confidence is indeed a strong attractive quality, it is being happy with you and it reflects in your smile and the warmth you carry with you that makes others want to be a part of your life.
