When your body language is confident, your mood is instantly lifted and people around you respond positively. You instantly gain the respect you deserve and people notice you. You affirm each day that you're awesome and worth it (which you truly are, hot stuff!) but does your body language reflect the same message? One sure way to instantly not only radiate but also feel self-confidence in a matter of seconds is to power pose! Practice by standing in an open space. The open space is important because clutter can emit negative energy. Once you're in the comfort of an open space, stand as straight as possible with perfect posture. Arch your back and slightly lift your chin. Spread your feet hip-width apart and firmly plant your hands on your hips. Close your eyes, breathe deeply in and out and smile. You feel amazing and fierce, don't you?
The next time you are faced with a challenge, have to talk to your boss, or are asking for something you want, be sure to stand tall and use this proven confidence booster. Let's empower all women to power pose so that they can feel and radiate self-confidence now and every day. I want you to show me your BEST power pose and I want you to uplift other women by asking them to do the same. Snap a photo (or a video) of yourself lookin' like a BOSS and post it to your social media accounts with the hashtag #JacquelineRosePowerPose. You'll instantly be entered in a contest to win free jewelry!
Here are a few other PROVEN methods that will boost your confidence in seconds:
1.) Wear Jewelry - adding some bling to your everyday outfit ensemble is a sure way to go from a 10 (which you already are, gorgeous!) to a 10+++! Adding a little sparkle, or something that is uniquely you, makes you feel creative and special.
2.) Smile - When I'm upset or feeling self-doubt, I instantly stop what I'm doing or thinking and force myself to smile. I hold my smile for as long as I can, sometimes until my cheeks hurt. Like magic, I instantly feel gratitude and realize that there's no obstacle I can't overcome. Do the same when you're faced with your own challenges and feel the joy immediately kick in. Carry that smile with you wherever you go and when talking to others. Trust me, your life will surely become even more awesome!
3.) Give Back - Helping others is a sure way to feel better about yourself. Helping others will give immense meaning to your life and a sense of purpose - resulting in increased self-esteem and self-worth. There are many ways to give back such as volunteering, donating, or supporting a cause that you're passionate about.
Now go do your power pose, beautiful!
