Hey there, Serena here! Some people have been asking me lately how I stay so positive AND be a good a leader. Let me tell you a secret, it’s not because I’m a cheerleader or because I’m second in command of Delta Nu… it’s CONFIDENCE! When you exude confidence you automatically command the room! It’s not about being an attention whore, it’s about commanding and demanding that people take notice of everything you do. Some people may call you a bitch for it, but own it! What some people see as bitchy, I see as large and in charge!
Anyway, so I figured, why not spread the wealth? Everyone deserves to feel their best, and confidence is a big part of who you are (and as we all know, being yourself never goes out of style!) so I’ve compiled some tips to help you out.
Know what you want, then do exactly what you need to do to get it!
Don’t let other people dictate what you’re capable of. You’re so much better than the limitations people put on you.
Choose something that you know will make you happy every day, for example, a signature color!
Exercise! It makes you feel good about yourself and gives you endorphins!
Remember that your friends always have your back, ask them for help if you’re feeling down.
Be your own cheerleader. Sometimes you just need to remind yourself of how awesome you are! Know your strengths.
Get a chip on your shoulder! Prove everyone who doesn’t believe in you wrong!
Eventually if you tell yourself something often enough, you start to believe it’s true! So think like a Delta Nu, follow these tips and watch your confidence soar through the roof!
