4. Exercise.  A healthy body is a healthy mind.  Spend 10 to 30 minutes each day keeping your body in shape. It can improve everything from your posture and body language to your self-esteem and decision-making — especially during the most stress-induced situations. The endorphins you produce can not only build your confidence but also project it for others to see.  Achieving workout goals can give you a sense of accomplishment — momentum that can easily transfer to other aspects of your life. If you need a quick pump of adrenaline before an important meeting, working out just prior can provide the pop you’re looking for.

5. Make sure to smile.  When I coach my clients on effective introductions, the first and last thing I say to them is to smile.Amy Cuddy, a social psychologist, gave a TED talk on how your body language can not only change how others see you but also how you see yourself. The easiest thing you can do to feel confident is smile, especially when your self-esteem is low. Even in the most strenuous of circumstances, smiling can put everyone around you — including yourself — at ease.Then, you’re in a position of influence to make decisions people will trust.  Those who are the boldest and most confident may be the ones who lead the awesome life.  They can also secure the meetings and the next greatest business deal.  Make sure it’s you, not your competition.

Wherever you are – be all there.”  ~Jim Elliot
