One of the most common job hunting tips given to candidates is to “act confident.” Acting confident is a lot easier when you really, truly feel confident. Practice these 6 habits, and you’ll find your confidence levels soaring.

  • Push yourself outside your comfort zone. When you try new things, you become more trusting of your ability to excel at unfamiliar endeavors.
  • Minimize your negative talk, and speak positively about all situations. Looking on the bright side helps you see yourself more positively, too.
  • Take responsibility when you achieve something, rather than chalking your accomplishments up to chance or fate.
  • Don’t get disgruntled when you fail. Look at failure as a learning experience — now you know what to avoid doing next time.
  • Seek out advice and inspiration from others who have accomplished what you want to accomplish. Ask them not only about their successes, but about their struggles, too.
  • Adopt a confident stance, which involves standing with your abs tight and your chin up. You feel more confident if you stand confidently.
