After getting through ups and downs for about 16 years (neglecting the toddling moment), no matter in academic or my own career, I realize the importance of self-confidence. Back in 17, I have once attended a scholarship interview, right after the release of my SPM results.
I was asked by the interviewer started with
'Why do you think that you deserve this scholarship among others with better academic or co-curricular results than you?'
And that's your answer to promote your own self thick-facedly, no matter flaws or strength, sort of hard-sell yourself to the interviewers, so that they get to know you better from your own understanding and interpretation of yourself.
Hence, I've survived through this interview and I got my offer from STAR scholarship from foundation leading to master degree in architecture. After all, that the first thing that lead me to success :
There are many ways to build confidence within self in life, I'm here to share mine.
#1 Empower yourself by reading books
Read everything, no matter what genre. Gaining knowledge is one of the best way to build confidence. It always get you prepared, not only exam but dealing with all kind of circumstances in our life.You act and think better whenever you're ready, that's the confidence within.
A smile that keep negative thoughts away. Kill all your negativeness deep down, stop persuading yourself with negative words like 'It's too hard' "I gonna give up' and you gonna left with zero confidence once you doubt about yourself. Smile is always powerful. It's how people perceive you as an energetic and kind person. It does helps activating the chain reaction and bonding relationship with one another.
#3 Groom yourself
Dress up and make up. A way to build our self-image as well as confidence from both inner and outer. Grooming up helps in boosting our mood and creating a great impact on first impression. You will definitely receiving compliments from others and owning a perception of 'I am always looking good' not only the appearance but within! Thus, that's confidence boosting!
#4 Photoshop your self-image
Yeah, the imaginary-self! We have a mental picture of ourselves, and it determines how confident we are in ourselves. Figure out why you see yourself that way, and find a way to fix it. Even when we got compliments from others, it helps to boost our mood and confidence too, a way to work on to become the imaginery-self! Like a target. Set and go for it.
#5 Taking good care of your skin
Showing your barefaced, showcasing the real YOU. I can tell that none of you like having terrible skin, how can you feel confidence with your acne skin and breakouts? How confidence are you showing your barefaced? Constructing your inner confidence is far more effective than the outer one. Need not to put on any make up or even photoshop your skin, but looking real great and healthy!
