You’ve been working long and hard trying to climb that corporate ladder, and there are some days you simply feel like the underdog in a world of top dogs. You eye that corner office with envy and practically worship your boss, wishing you had his/her sense of confidence and self-assurance. You may even see other underlings who seem to emulate the same confidence.
So how can you feel like a boss even if you are still an underdog? The good news is that it is easier than you may think. Here are some tips to help you raise your self-assurance and help you feel like a boss.
5 Ways to Feel Like a Boss
Walk the Walk
Take a good look at your boss and how he/she enters a room. He/she probably walks erect, and his/her stride has a sense of purpose. His/her handshake is firm, and he/she looks you directly in the eye when he/she speaks to you. He/she emanates power and purpose.
Follow that lead, improve your posture when sitting, standing, and walking. The straighter you stand, the more you will stand out. Practice shaking hands to ensure that your grip is sure and strong, and make sure that you look every person you meet in the eye when you are talking to them. Know where you are going and what you intend to do when you get there, and you can have a sense of purpose in your stride.
Start Looking the Part
You’ve probably heard the expression “dress for success,” and while no suit or dress will actually make you successful, dressing the part will help you to feel more confident and self-assured. However, to really feel like a boss you need to do more than just wearing the right clothes. Going for the right grooming routine can also help you to feel more in control and more confident.
When you look your best, you feel your best and have more confidence. Looking the part can make you feel like a boss.
