Live it up!

The key to success in the life of any man or woman is high self-esteem or confidence. A person who can walk into a room full of people and make conversations stop and heads turn will always be a winner. This world is run by such people.

Lack of confidence is the only reason why most of us do not have the careers we wanted to, why many of us are married to the wrong person or why a lot of us lose out on good deals and great opportunities. If we only had the courage to propose to our college sweetheart or if we had the nerve to quit the job we hated, we probably would be in a different place or environment altogether.

Opportunity knocks, but ever so slightly. If we hear it and open the door, life may change hands, if not we remain stuck in our monotonous, boring and depressing world.

There are lots of ways you can boost up your self-confidence. You can find books to read, people to meet, techniques to apply and ways to improve your self-image and esteem.

Life is kinder to those who face it head-on. Shy away and it too, goes the other way. Do what you want, say what you feel, visit the places you have dreamt about and be with the person you truly love. Let go of false inhibitions, fake identities, hypocritical attitudes and all those skeletons in the closet.

When you go for an interview or an important meeting, dress appropriately for the occasion. Make eye contact with the person in front of you and try to be yourself. Remember, one tiny lie leads to another and another, and before you know it, you are entrapped in a series of lies that you cannot get out of.

Honesty, straight-forwardness and high self-esteem are usually the answers to many of life’s problems.
