5 Tips To Becoming A Confident Woman

Have you seen women that exude an air of confidence and self-assurance.  You get the feeling that they can conquer the world and achieve anything.  You admire them and wonder how they reached that level.  You secretly wish you had half of their skills and success.   

I was there at one point in my life.  As a single mother, I wanted to be successful.  I wanted to achieve a six figure salary and I wanted to know how to get there.  I wanted to be strong as a mother, as a leader, a mentor and manager.  I’ve had a mentor through out my life and I’ve been a mentor.  I accepted the fact that I couldn’t achieve success on my own, I needed guidance and advice.  
Our role as mothers, spouses, partners and influencers is huge.  We need to display confidence to our children, our spouse or significant other and those that we influence in our life and on the job. Building confidence is a process.  It doesn’t happen over night, but if you continually enhance your skills you will become a confident woman.
Here are a few traits that I believe all women need to become confident:
  1. Define Your Belief System – These are your core values that remain unchanged.  They can include but are not limited to being ethical, family-oriented, reliable, trustworthy.  Define them and stand firm
  2. Be Consistent – You must be consistent in all areas of your life for the most part, but be flexible when needed.  If you’re inconsistent you won’t be taken seriously by your family, co-workers or anyone else that you influence.    
  3.  Become An Achiever –  Set goals and make a plan to achieve them.  It’s important to be an example for your children in this area.  Achieving goals requires stamina and hard work.  
  4. Be Positive – I read daily affirmations to help me stay positive.
  5. Have a sense of humor – You will make mistakes along the way.  Be able to laugh, pick yourself up and move on.
If you don’t want to obtain a mentor, surround yourself with positive people who have arrived at the destination that you’re trying to achieve.  Ask for advice when you need it.  Unfortunately, there isn’t a road map how to achieve success in your business or on how to be a good mother.  Becoming confident and believing in yourself will help you achieve your goals in all areas of your life.  Your spouse, partner and children will see it and believe it.  Take the first step and everything else will fall into place.
