We have all hear the saying “Fake it till you make it.”
However, this is very hard to do when you want to be true to yourself. Besides, if you are feeling low, finding the confidence to even “fake it” might seem quite difficult. However, when it comes to meeting new people and learning new things, you just have to believe you can do it, even when you are not in the mood.
According to researchers, one of the best ways to up your confidence level and improve your self esteem is to surround yourself with people who are outgoing and supportive! American author and philosopher Jim Rohn says every person can be summed up as “the average of the five people (they) spend the most time with.”
So, we ask the question: who do you spend the most time with? Are they outgoing and confident? Do they bring out the best in you or do they do a lot of complaining and are quick to wallow along with you when things go wrong?
It stands to reason that hanging around insecure people will always feed your insecurities. Conversely spending time with confident people rubs off and will boost your own confidence. Confident and secure people make others feel the same.
