How Guys Get Confident: iVillage.com

You need to develop personal habits that will put you in the right frame of mind and keep your confidence chain well-oiled and running strong. Try the following to keep yourself motivated:

Talk to yourself: Practice speaking in the morning before leaving the house by clearing your throat and saying aloud, "Good morning. You look great. You are number one. Today is going to be a great day. Today, you will say hi to at least five strangers."

Keep a list of your strengths: Write down 10 traits that will make you invaluable to any woman who's lucky enough to get your attention and time (you have to think this way to be confident).

Change negative outlooks into positive ones: If you're single, stop being depressed about it. Instead of worrying about being alone, be happy that you have the opportunity to meet and seduce many women.

2. Physical appearance

Your physical appearance plays a very big role in your level of confidence. Not so much regarding how you feel about yourself but how other people make you feel. Naturally, the more physically fit you are, or the closer your appearance is to what society deems attractive, the more eyes there'll be on you. And that feeds into the Confidence Chain. So naturally, you should be exercising regularly and maintaining a healthy diet in order to give the ladies what they like — a strong, fit body with abs of steel and anaconda arms, and don't forget to stand up straight.

3. Style

Sorry to break it to you, but the threads you wear play a part in determining how the people in your life — both strangers and acquaintances — will treat you. This, in turn, will affect the way you feel, which, in turn, will affect your state of mind, which, in turn, will affect your confidence. Get the point? If you want to feel confident 100 percent of the time, you have to look stylish 100 percent of the time. If you don't, you'll subconsciously feel inferior, and before you know it, that will outwardly manifest itself as nervousness. Make sure you're properly groomed and dressed better than the people you expect to meet.
