The key ingredient in the recipe for an adventurous life – is confidence.
I am not sure where it comes from.
Or where it goes.
It’s important to get the balance right though.
So you don’t get a little too cocky or slimy.
Confidence, for me, is eye contact.
And being interesting and interested.
And it’s an open posture with warmth and vulnerability and kindness and maybe even awkwardness.
Because you are just being you – and you are totally happy with that.
Awkwardness and vulnerability can be very engaging, actually.
You know you’re not perfect.
Yet you show your full self.
Confident people do that.
Here are three things that confident people do:
- They think first about how they can make people around them feel good.
- They ask people how they can help them.
- They ask for help themselves, when they need it.
I mention these things because so many people seem to wish they were more confident.
Or (as some frame it) ‘naturally confident.’
I think that, if you do these three things, you will be.
Give it a go!
