Are you using your confidence to radiate beauty?
Take a moment to consider these questions:
Do you know and trust yourself?
Do you define beauty your own way (instead of what the media or society dictates)?
Can you feel beautiful even without wearing nice clothes?
Can you skip makeup and still feel beautiful?
If you answered no to any of these questions, there could be one important element missing from your beauty regimen: confidence.
Of course just saying it doesn’t make it so. But when you think about it, insecurity is just as much work and produces way less favorable outcomes than radiating confidence. When you’re insecure, you are a difficult friend (sister, lover, etc.) to have. And insecurity may block your ability to return friendship (sisterhood, love, etc.). You count on others to validate you, to build the confidence you lack, to do your beauty work for you.
Here are a few quick tips to focus on confidence. Let yourself shine with inner beauty.
Don’t worry about trends
Don’t take things personally
Don’t worry about pleasing people
Don’t second guess decisions
Don’t see failure as defeat
Stand up to peer pressure
Listen more than talk
The good news is that confidence isn’t a fixed trait. You can always fake it ’til you make it. And just like checking your makeup in the mirror every day, be sure to check your confidence too. It’s the most important thing you can put on.
