You know the saying, "Fake it 'til you make it"?

It turns out that doing things that make you appear confident -- even if you don't actually feel confident  -- can affect how others see you, and can ultimately have a big impact on your success. It can also affect the chemicals in your brain to make you actually feel more confident when all is said and done.

Think about the last time you felt unsure of yourself. Perhaps you were about to give a presentation in front of a group of people; or maybe you were feeling really awkward at a networking event where you knew no one. (Terrifying, I know.)

In these instances, there are a couple of handy things you can do to make it look like you're feeling confident. And when you come off as confident, authentic, comfortable, and enthusiastic, you'll come off as smarter, more passionate, and more likeable.

Check out the infographic below from Vegas Extreme Skydiving for tips on how to appear confident. Use them the next time you're feeling unsure of yourself, whether you're trying something new, forging new relationships, or taking new risks.
