Confidence is like a muscle – you can totally work on it and make it stronger. If self-doubt is knocking on your door, don’t worry!  Here are five super easy ways to pump up your confidence and make you feel like the superstar you are.

Choose Your Posse Wisely

First things first, surround yourself with people who lift you up, people who blow air under your wings.  You know, those friends who celebrate your wins, back you up when things get tough, and just radiate good vibes.  Keep the cheerleaders in your life close and wave goodbye to the critics.  Positive vibes are catchy, and when you’re soaking them up, your confidence is bound to get a boost.  It’s like having a personal cheering section!

Flip the Script: Let’s Get Positive

Negative thoughts can wear down the most positive ones if left unchecked.  Tackle the bad vibes by flipping the script.  Whenever a negative thought pops up, jot down three awesome things about yourself.  It’s akin to changing your life from a drama to a feel-good movie.  Before you know it, you’ll be swimming in positive affirmations, reminding yourself that you are a superstar.

Talk to Yourself Like a BFF

We all have that inner kid inside of us.  Even though we may be adults, we are still operating off subconscious programming – the same thoughts, beliefs, and perceptions we formed before the tender age of 7.  So, why not talk to yourself like you’re talking to your seven-year-old self? Imagine giving Little You a pep talk.  It’s surprisingly kind, nurturing, and powerful.  By doing this, you’re softening the self-criticism and embracing a gentler way of talking to yourself. It’s like giving yourself a big, warm, reassuring hug.

Repeat After Me: “I Am Enough”

Let’s add a daily mantra to your routine—something simple yet super powerful. How about saying “I Am Enough” every morning? Write it on your bathroom mirror, say it out loud, and carry it with you throughout the day. It’s like a confidence secret weapon. Try it for just seven days and see how your self-image transforms.  Spoiler alert: You’re going to feel awesome!

Get Hypnotized for Confidence

If you find you can’t hold positive thoughts or maintain positive actions long enough to affect the change you want, chances are there is a negative thought or limiting belief keeping you stuck.  If this describes you, don’t fret!  Instead, say hello to RTT®!

RTT®, or Rapid Transformational Therapy,® developed by the world-renowned therapist, Marisa Peer, is THE coolest, self-development tool available.  RTT® provides deep, subconscious work that uncovers the root of any underlying negative thoughts and limiting beliefs that keep you stuck and installs new, positive, powerful beliefs that improve your confidence and help you create the life you want.  Unlike talk therapy, which can take YEARS, RTT® can help resolve most issues in 1 to 3 sessions.  Yes, you read that correctly, 1 to 3 sessions.

After experiencing the power of RTT® in my own life, I became certified to offer RTT® to my clients.  Trained by Maria Peer, herself, RTT® allows me to not only help my clients navigate the daunting divorce process but to also help them get their confidence back post-divorce. 

Ready to boost your confidence?  Put the first four steps into action – commit to these steps for seven days – and see what happens.  If you don’t feel markedly better about yourself, or if you find that you’re unable to follow through with the first four steps, I’m offering a complimentary, 30-minute Breakthrough Session.  To take advantage of my offer, click here to access my RTT calendar.

Wishing you peace & plenty of confidence!

Your gray girlfriend,
