Question is: How do YOU become him?

The thing about confidence is that it isn’t something you can just decide to have and then be able to achieve it overnight. More importantly, confidence cannot be faked. It is very easy to spot a man who tries too hard to look self-assured, because he would always end up giving the exact opposite impression.

The trick to being more confident is actually simple. It’s really all about knowing yourself, being comfortable with what you have, and trying to enhance what can be enhanced without having to change the person that you really are. If these all sound too complicated, then here are simpler and more detailed ways on how to be the confident man you’ve always wanted to be.

Love your Skin

Have you ever tried looking at yourself in the mirror and being able to say “Man, you’re awesome”? If you haven’t, then you should try it every once in a while.

It is important that you give yourself the credit you deserve. It’s nearly impossible to make others see all the good things you have if you can’t even convince yourself that you are a good catch. This is usually the root of most confidence issues.

Constantly remind yourself of all the reasons why people are lucky to know you. Sure, there may be a few flaws here and there, but you have to do away with your insecurities. Don’t be too hard on yourself. If other people can be comfortable with all their shortcomings, there’s no reason for you not to. Remember that no one is perfect, unless maybe he is Channing Tatum or Johnny Depp.

Work Out

Just because you are comfortable with what you have doesn’t mean you have to be forever content with it. It is always good to improve on the little things that can be easily improved.

Why bother to hit the gym at least once a week?There is of course the obvious reason that working out will enhance your physique. A wonderfully-toned body doesn’t hurt, and it surely feels a lot better to walk around with abs instead of flabs. Also, regular exercise contributes a lot to your health, and knowing that you are fit makes you feel better about yourself.

Pay Attention to Grooming

Fact: Even he who is handsome and hot could fail with the ladies if he looks and smells…well, anything but pleasant.

Let’s face it; before you even open your mouth or do anything, the first thing anyone notices is what can be easily perceived by the eyes and the nose. A bad haircut, shabby facial hair, body odor, and last night’s meal still wedged between your teeth—that’s the perfect recipe to turn a woman off.

You never know when you’re going to bump into the woman you’d want to exchange numbers with, so it’s best to keep proper hygiene and grooming worked into your regular routine.

Dress to Impress

Clothing is very subjective in as far as style and fashion sense goes. Each man has his own set of preferences, and that is fine. What matters is that you are comfortable in what you wear.

There are also a few general things you have to keep in mind.

First, do not overdress; choose your clothes so that you stand out because they make you look good, not odd. Second, try also not to be underdressed. Dress appropriately according to the occasion and the venue; the last thing you’d want to do is show up in a formal party wearing your favorite shirt, jeans and sneakers. Lastly, when going out, choose clothes that are in good condition and are clean. If the clothes you wear make you feel like a million bucks, you are bound to feel more confident and people will definitely notice.

Walk the Talk

If you ant to be a confident man, you have to look the part. Aside from the body, grooming and the clothes, the last thing you have to pay attention to on the physical aspect is the way you carry yourself.

A good posture and walk translates to confidence. Stand tall with your head held high and walk purposefully. A person who walks hurriedly or walks with his head down is usually someone trying to avoid eye contact and conversations. If you carry yourself with confidence, people will notice you the moment you walk into a room.

Show Proper Temperament

One obvious sign of insecurity is the constant need to insult someone, even a mere passerby. Someone who lacks self-confidence usually does this because (1) he is jealous and (2) he thinks that making others look bad makes him look better. This actually gives the opposite effect.

A confident man isn’t jealous, mean, or petulant. The fact is a good, calm and pleasant temperament is usually what differentiates a truly confident man from someone who’s faking it.

Act Natural

Don’t try too hard to please someone if it means having to forget your individuality. The more you try to be someone you’re not, the more you lose confidence in yourself.

During conversations, do not be ashamed to admit it when there are things that come up that you are unfamiliar with. There’s a lot of shame that follows when caught pretending to know something you don’t.

Even when you are around someone new, try to act as though she is a really good friend with whom you can be who you really are. Feel free to joke around, move about, and laugh at yourself.

Be Assertive

Read: Be assertive, NOT aggressive.

Confident men are known to be very self-assured when talking about what they want. Don’t be a pushover who agrees with just about everything your date says for fear of being rejected. You should know when to agree to disagree. Do not be afraid to speak your mind and make your own choices. It’s really quite annoying when a man can’t decide what movie to watch, can’t make the suggestion of where to eat out, and can’t tell a woman how he feels about her.

However, you should be mindful of the thin line that separates assertiveness from aggressiveness. Overdoing this could make you look more cocky than confident.

Take Risks

What’s good about staying in your comfort zone? It’s familiar and, yes, it’s comfortable. What’s bad about it? It’s boring and does nothing to enhance your courage and self-confidence.

If you constantly allow yourself to be consumed by your fears, you will never be able to try out new things. A life full of “what if’s” and “if only’s” is not the life of a confident man. Every once in a while, take a risk even if you know that the possibility of rejection, pain and failure is just around the corner. You’d be surprised how much these will make you stronger and more confident.

Have Fun

Finally, do what you enjoy and enjoy what you do. Don’t take everything TOO seriously. Impressing people isn’t an exam where you have to think hard about everything you do to pass. The more relaxed and care-free you are around people, the more confidence you will project.

When you hear people say “Confidence: it’s either you have it or you don’t,” here’s a tip: don’t believe them. It is possible for even the most insecure person to learn how to be confident. All it takes is a bit of courage, determination, and a lot of practice. In trying to be more confident, it is not enough to just KNOW; you have to DO it.
