Yep, we're still wearing coats despite the fact that it's April now, British weather eh. I'm very tired of this deceptive sunshine and bipolar weather. Anyway, your girl is back with a new post and this one's for the bada$$ bih's. I thought I'd put together a lil edgy look with my fairly new leopard print coat and cat eye sunglasses because why not?! I felt especially badass with these sunglasses on; I swear they make you feel like a completely different person. Confidence levels on 1000 x
I'm not the most confident person but I'm a firm believer in stepping out of your comfort zone and also faking it till you make it. By the latter, I don't mean stunting and acting like you've got it all together but rather forcing yourself to be confident in the moment and then making that your norm. For example, when I'm at a networking event I'll force myself to walk over to at least one person and start a conversation without overthinking it! Literally, just do it (no Nike). As you continue to do that frequently, it will come so naturally to you, which is what Dr Ivan Joseph talks about in his Ted Talk; he describes confidence as a skill that can be trained and I think this is so true. I also think, however, that we are all born with a certain level of confidence, some greater than others and in different aspects, but we're still capable of increasing our level on confidence in the areas we lack in.
