Kappa Delta created the Confidence Coalition to address the many issues that diminish confidence in women and girls.
This international movement enables women and girls to embrace their uniqueness, stand up to peer pressure and media stereotypes, say no to risky behavior and abusive relationships, and put an end to relational aggression, such as bullying – on the playground and in the office.
Spend 10 minutes writing down all the things that make you uniquely, wonderfully you.
Focus on the things you’re proud of and happy with, the things that you want to celebrate about being you.
Honestly, this really works and if you’re in any doubt, then I’d suggest you just give it a go.
Sometimes we need to take time out of our busy lives to remind ourselves why we’re so brilliant/cool/funny/attractive etc.

This means every time you make a decision, you know you’re doing the right thing.
Your confidence will soar once you know you can rely on yourself and you don’t need to worry about what others think of you.I recall exactly how I felt that, how I acted, what I did and then I hold on to those thoughts and feelings and head out to face the world with renewed sass.Would Beyonce go out on a date worrying about how she might come across or worrying if it was going to go well? The minute you feel your confidence failing, think about what Beyonce do (or someone super confident that you admire) and you’ll feel yourself rising to the occasion.Life is nice and easy when you don’t push yourself but it doesn’t give you that incredible buzz that you get when you do. Pushing out your comfort zone will probably scare the heck out of you…but then the feeling when you succeed is fantastic. Try and commit to doing something once a day, week or month that pushes you and you’ll find it boosts your confidence to whole, new levels of brilliance.You’ve had some bad experiences in the past with online dating, right? As you try to shrug off your bad dating experiences, keep an ear out for your inner critic. It might be saying things like: Every date you’ve been on has failed. Argh – your inner critic, if left to its own devices, will control how you feel about yourself and will gradually wear down your confidence levels. To do this, first you need to actively listen out for it and then you need to stop it in its tracks.Write down what you’re hearing - it will be a shock for you to see it written down, then find evidence that proves otherwise.You want to get to a place where you feel brilliant about yourself.The quickest road to growing in confidence is to push yourself out of that comfort zone you’re living in.It amounts to the same thing as far as your date is concerned.They will see the you that you’re projecting so you might as well make sure you’re projecting the best version of you, whether it’s real or not.
