7 Simple Habits That Will Make You A More Confident Person


If you met me a year ago, I would have seemed like a totally different person. WHY? Because I was about 1000% more insecure than I am today. WHY? That’s a whole other blog post for a whole other time. The point is – I’m a happier and healthier person today because of one thing: confidence.

A few weeks ago, I wrote a post called Is It Possible For Introverts To Be Confident? all about the appalling misuse of the word “introvert” and why most people automatically think it means “shy and insecure.” (MYTH = DEBUNKED. Obviously.) In that post I mentioned that I’ve gone from being an unconfident person to being a confident person…and I said I wanted to write a post about little things you can do to become more confident. To my pleasant surprise, A LOT OF YOU SAID “YES PLEASE WRITE A POST LIKE THAT.” So here we are!!

But first let’s clear up a few things. A lot of people misuse words. And I’m not just talking about “like” and “um” and “aesthetic.” I’m talking about CONFIDENCE.* So once again, let’s whip out The Abbiee Dictionary and redefine a few things. Like WHAT CONFIDENCE EVEN MEANS.

*CLEARLY. I’M TALKING ABOUT CONFIDENCE. Look at the title of this post. Look at the header image. What did you think I was talking about, friend????


To me, confidence means being certain of your own value, abilities, and awesomeness. It means feeling good in your own skin, feeling able to rise to any challenge, feeling secure at all times, not matter who attacks you on whatever grounds. It means being honest, bold, and limitless. It means blurring the lines between your comfort zone and everything else – chasing your dreams because you know that you have what it takes to fly past the finish line and keep going strong. Confidence essentially means: I’m a supernova star and I know it.

Pride. Ego. Arrogance. Self-conceit. A lot of these things can masquerade as confidence…but they are actually THE EXACT OPPOSITE. When someone (me) feels insecure, sometimes they (me) lash out with arrogance, loftiness, and pride (also me.) IT IS THEIR WEAKNESS. Don’t confuse this for confidence. Because a truly confident person is NOT prideful. If arrogance is a person’s reaction to feeling threatened (insecure), then this person is not confident. THIS PERSON IS DISILLUSIONED. 


A truly confident person doesn’t feel insecure or threatened. A truly confident person doesn’t lash out. WHY? Because they are secure – in who they are. They don’t need to justify themselves, protect themselves, or make excuses about their actions. I CANNOT SAY IT LOUD ENOUGH: Pride is a symptom of insecurity. Confidence is the result of security.

Confidence is important because YOU are important. You have beautiful things in your future!! Incredible adventures await!! But only if you have the courage to chase your dreams. Yes, I totally believe in opportunities popping out of nowhere – it has happened to me, and IT’S AWESOME. But what are you going to do with those opportunities? YOU’RE GOING TO MAKE THEM REALITIES. You’re going to grab your dream with both hands and run with it. And it might be fun at first, but somewhere along the line… you’re going to reach the limits of your comfort zone.

And that’s when you have to make a decision: stay here inside your comfort zone because you’re scared of what lies in the Great Beyond™ — or keep running, through the discomfort, and LIVE YOUR LIFE. That great adventure!! IT’S YOURS.

This is why confidence is important. Because if you don’t have confidence when you reach the limits of your comfort zone…chances are you’re going to turn back. You’re going to stick with what is easy and comfortable – not because it’s what you want, but because it’s what you’re used to. Because on some level, you’re not sure of yourself. You’re scared. (AND I FEEL THIS TOO, BELIEVE ME. The struggle is real.)

Your habits become who you are. << THIS IS A UNIVERSAL TRUTH. Over time, it’s the little things that shape the kind of person you are. Not the big decisions, like should I become a missionary or a civil engineer, but small decisions, like should I ask for the wi-fi password or not. Think of it like water dripping on a rock. Over time, that innocent little drip will bore a hole through the rock – but not if you stop it RIGHT NOW.

Confidence is important because it helps you to get the most out of your life. Fear of missing out?? YOU DON’T HAVE TO FEAR. Because the more confident you become, the less regrets you’ll have – the less you’ll look back and think: maybe I should’ve done that differently. Insecurity keeps you from living your full potential. AND WHAT COULD BE MORE HEARTBREAKING THAN THAT??? Let’s bust out of this societal norm of playing small and deprecating ourselves. LET’S BE DIFFERENT.

Okay, rant over. Time to start improving your life.


I’M GUILTY, MY FRIEND. I AM SO GUILTY. But that doesn’t mean I can’t call you out for the same thing. It’s pretty sad how many teens and young adults I see depreciating themselves every single day without fail. THIS IS SO IMPORTANT TO STOP DOING. In fact, it is probably the one thing that has given me more confidence than anything else. If you do none of the habits on this list, DO THIS ONE. STOP DEPRECIATING YOURSELF.

There are plenty of haters in the world. Plenty of people out there who are going to point at you and say mean things. DON’T BE ONE OF THEM. Even if you think self-depreciating thoughts, don’t say them out loud. You don’t have to be like “I’M THE GREATEST PERSON EVER” (because, like we said, that’s usually the ego speaking) but if you don’t have anything good to say about yourself, don’t say anything at all. < tbh if we’d all just listened to Thumper, life would be a lot easier.

Some of you are like “LOLOL NO WAY” and some of you are like “what’s so bad about picking up the phone??” To the latter: move onto the next habit. To the former: I KNOW. IT’S HARD. BUT IT GETS EASIER. I used to be terrified of picking up the phone. What if you aren’t the person they want to talk to? Or, even more terrifying, what if you ARE? What if you don’t have the information they’re looking for? What if you sound like an idiot??


It will be uncomfortable at first. But pretty soon, it will become easy and natural. I pick up just about every phone call, now. (Okay sometimes if it’s extended family I won’t pick it up LOLOL SO THERE’S YOUR ONE EXCUSE.) A simple “they’re not here at the moment, may I take a message?” is all it takes. TRY IT. It’s actually kind of fun. Also try picking up the next telemarketer/survey call and pretend you’re a five-year-old. That’s also really fun. 

OR AT LEAST TRY TO. I’m the kind of person who lives by that wise old adage, “If you want something done right, do it yourself.” Which means I’m usually not the type to ask for help – whether I can’t find the milk in my own refrigerator, or I’m hanging off the edge of a cliff by my fingertips. Sometimes it gets a little extreme (like in the cliff-hanger scenario) but otherwise, IT’S A GOOD THING TO DO.

Most of us instinctively try to figure something out by ourselves, first. Then at some point we give up and ask for help. But I encouraging you to not give up so quickly – try to figure it out for JUST A FEW MORE MINUTES. Because when you do figure something out by yourself, it makes you feel smart, efficient, and more confident. You feel secure because you know that you have what it takes to navigate your life without constantly leaning on someone else’s arm. 

DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF THE POWER POSE. You’ve probably heard about this before (especially if you’re a psychology geek like myself) but in case you haven’t, QUICK DEFINITION: power posing is the act of positioning your body in such a way that makes you feel like a superhero.* But power posing isn’t just about looking cool or feeling boss – it literally changes the chemical makeup of your brain and body.

YES I KNOW I’m getting all science-y on you here…but don’t judge it until you try it!! Here is a whole list of power poses you can try out – preferably first thing in the morning, or before any event you’re feeling anxious about. If you feel awkward about it (DON’T) then do it where no one can see you. But I know from experience that it’s super helpful to power pose in social situations, too. You don’t have to be theatrical about it – just stand with your feet hips-distance apart, your chin lifted, and your hands folded loosely behind your back. Whenever I’m feeling awkward in public, I do this and IT IS LIKE A MAGIC ELIXIR.

*Definition directly stolen from The Abbiee Dictionary


“Even when the truth will hurt?” you ask. “ESPECIALLY WHEN THE TRUTH WILL HURT,” I say wisely, sitting cross-legged in a rock garden with incense burning around me in a very spiritual manner. IN ALL SERIOUSNESS, THIS IS SUPER IMPORTANT. Little things are uncomfortable – such as picking up the phone – but what about when a friend does something that you know is wrong, unhealthy, or offensive? How do you respond?

For a long time, I wouldn’t. You love them because of who they are, not what they do – right? WELL THAT DEPENDS ON HOW YOU DEFINE LOVE. To me, love means helping the person next to you reach their full potential – showing them who they really are: a beautiful supernova star created for greatness. So when they do something that is a step away from greatness, is it love to just “accept” that? I don’t think so.*

Over the past few years, I’ve confronted people – both close friends and acquaintances, both on the internet and face-to-face. I wasn’t impolite about the issue at hand; I was simply honest. I told them the truth, purely with the intention to help, not hurt. And was it uncomfortable?? HECK YES. IT WAS SOME OF THE MOST UNCOMFORTABLE CONVERSATION I’VE EVER HAD. And did I lose some friends? Heck yes.** But did it help me grow? HECK YES. Every time I confront someone with the truth, it becomes a little bit easier to speak my mind. And that makes me a more confident person.

*I COULD RAMBLE A LOT MORE ABOUT THIS TOPIC but for the sake of your precious time I’m going to shut up now. Tell me if you want to read a discussion-type post on this some other time though!!!

**A friend I’ve known for more than 7 years completely shut me out after I confronted her about something and hasn’t spoken to me since. NOT THAT THIS IS A GOOD TESTIMONY LOL, but it kind of is??? Because the people who can accept to your confrontation and respond to it with maturity and love… THOSE PEOPLE are your real friends.

“WAIT ABBIEE, isn’t this kind of contradictory??? YOU JUST TOLD US TO FIGURE THINGS OUT FOR OURSELVES.” << yes and no. Because there are some things you can’t figure out. SUCH AS THE WI-FI PASSWORD. (Believe me, I’ve tried to guess about 5468135456 wi-fi passwords in my lifetime and do you know how many I’ve actually guessed correctly?? 00000.)

^ ACTUALLY ME TRYING TO GUESS THE WIFI PASSWORD ^

Asking those little “stupid” questions is SO IMPORTANT. Because what’s holding you back?
You think you’ll look awkward, ignorant, or oR OR??? WHAT. I’ve struggled with this too – SO MUCH. Anxiety is real, and please don’t think I am belittling it. But just like any other ailment of the mind or body: IT IS OVERCOME-ABLE. You can do this!! I BELIEVE IN YOU.

When someone asks you a question (even a stupid question like “I lost my shoelaces can I borrow yours?”) YOU’RE BRAIN IMMEDIATELY TRIES TO ANSWER THE QUESTION. You’re not thinking about how awkward the person asking it is. Which means it doesn’t even matter if YOU look awkward asking a question. JUST DO IT. And for the record, the wi-fi password is NEVER wifipassword1234. So you can eliminate that one from your list.

I get it: BUILDING CONFIDENCE IS HARD. I’ve been there and I’m still there. No one is 100% superhero. We all feel nervous, anxious, and insecure from time to time. WE’RE HUMAN YAY. But you don’t want to be the person who holds herself back from chasing her dreams because she’s nervous, anxious, and insecure. How do you avoid making the wrong decision when the stakes are high? Make the right decision when the stakes are low. Do the thing that is uncomfortable but good for you. STOP DRIPPING ON THE ROCK. Pick up the phone, ask for the wi-fi password, and confront people with the truth when you feel like you should.

And if you say to yourself “I’m not confident, I’m just pretending I’m confident” <<< GOOD. DO THAT. Fake it till you make it! Even if you feel like panicking and crying and hiding in the bathroom, PRETEND YOU DON’T. Be bold and strong and fabulous, even if you feel like curling up in the fetal position. Don’t excuse yourself by identifying with a problem – act like you don’t have that problem. Aspire to be the healthiest and most confident version of yourself. Power pose when no one is looking! Fake it till you make it!

You’ll be surprised when, one day, ever so gracefully, you wake up and smile and say to yourself, “You know what? I’m a supernova star. And I know it.”

This issue is very near and dear to my heart, AS YOU PROBABLY NOTICED 2,400 words later. So what are YOUR thoughts? Would you consider yourself a confident person? If not, DON’T SELF-DEPRECIATE. Just say that you’re still working on it. ;) What’s your favorite power pose? Add to this list with something that makes you feel more #boss.

rock on,
abbiee

  1. I'm confident in my values as they are unwavering, but I'm typically a confident person. I often find myself looking to the ground when I walk instead of looking ahead. Its a weird habit I'm trying to stop.

    This post was amazing, as always. You're so good at being encouraging and truthful. I needed to read this.

    Also, how do you make your graphics? I love the little arrows and flowers. I want to make more personalized graphics for my blog and was curious what you used.

    God bless you!

  6. "Fake it til you make it." MY LIFE MOTTO.

    Another thing that helped me grow in confidence was realizing that the only thing that matters IS GOD. And we can be confident because He loves us. He clearly thinks that we are awesome (He created us, for goodness sake), so why don't we see ourselves in that same light?

  8. OH hi *hides*

    I MEAN WELL LOOK AT ME I'm SO CONFIDENT!

    THIS POST.

    I totally agree with your definition of what confidence is. I used to be super confident and now...not so much. Like I get really scared when asking something even a WIFI passwords so yeah need to start doing that.

    I mean...being confident is hard especially when you doubt yourself so much. Like sometimes I want to say something but then I'll know people will say I'm stupid if that something is wrong. And sometimes I say something and it's wrong and I just go along with it you know? but then I make a mental note to never speak out if 'm not sure of myself. which is like never.

    BUT enough of my ramblings. I'll just try and fake it from now and soon make it. THANKS SOMUCH for sharing!

  10. *copies and pastes EVERY LEGENDARY CLAPPING GIF EVER*

    Girl, this guide was both helpful and hilarious. These were some of the most practical tips on improving confidence I've ever read, and improving confidence is something I NEED to do.

    Some little things I'd add to your list:

    8) Wear that outfit that you wanna wear. Two reasons: one, it's good not to worry what others think of your appearance. And two, YA LOOK BOSS IN IT.

    9) Sing in public. You don't gotta be obnoxious and disruptive, but a little quiet singing to yourself can lift the spirits (and the confidence!) And who knows, someone might overhear and join in, and spontaneous duets with strangers are always lit.


    K, I'll stotp hijacking your post now. Because it's AWESOME as it is. Well done *more applause GIFs*

  13. This was such a wonderful post! I seriously loved every tip you gave. Fake it 'till you make it is something very confident person does. The more confident you act, the more you will be. It's okay for people to laugh at you and to laugh at yourself. Sometimes you say really strange things and that's fine. Trying to be considerate to others helps me focus on them more and less on myself. Thanks for sharing Abbiee!

  14. Thank you so much for sharing this! Confidence is something I'm still working on daily. I've gotten past most of my phone anxiety but I still cannot confront a person to save my life. Honestly, I feel like it's just my prideful desire to be loved and liked by everybody that draws me back from being the most loving, open, and genuine person I can be. I think that in a since, confidence is a sign of humility, because confident people are not always thinking about themselves, they're just doing their thing, free of the fear of other people's harsh criticism and snarkiness, and instead focussing on uplifting OTHER people. It's kind of a beautiful thing, and something I aspire towards more every day.

    And honestly Abbiee, I feel like so many people needed this post (including myself) because it is so so so inspiring to hear tips from someone WHO HAS ACTUALLY HAD RELEVANT EXPERIENCES AND SUCCESS!
    Anywho, sending so much love and positivity your way, You are a supernova star! We all are <3

  15. Wow, this might be my favourite of your posts - this is something pretty big to me too. We weren't made to live in the shadow of insecurity, and our comfort zone is only there to be broken. And like you said, it does all come back to confidence. And wow, I just realized from rereading your tips: confidence is a choice. That's all.

  19. Okay, this post is literally one of my favorites of all time. "Even when the truth will hurt?” I love love love this because I have found that when you are able to confront someone you are close with, it DOES make you more confident. I also just love how you defined the difference between confidence and pride because there most definitely is a clear difference. And you are so right that figuring out things for yourself creates confidence. I've found when I only rely on other people and what they're doing, it makes me less confident because I'm not entirely sure what I actually THINK.
