In 1996 researchers Edwards and Hardy published the results of their study of confidence in the Journal of Sport and Exercise Psychology and determined that what we suspected was true. Self-confidence is indeed an important predictor of performance.

This spring, as you revive yourself from the aftermath of your divorce, it’s time to wear your new-found confidence with style and pizazz. Move out of the shadows and onto life’s runway with the knowledge that you have come through a difficult time in life, and are now ready to take on the world again. Take the time to study new trends in fashions and lifestyle, an exercise you may have overlooked in the busy years of your marriage. Select which ones fit with your personality and work for you. Will you wear orange as the new black as Elle magazine suggests, or favor dramatic black-and-white combinations? Want to try out the trend towards icy pastels or add some fringes to your accessories?

Spend some time checking out fashion trend sources as well as lifestyle trends. Sites like www.trendhunter.com package all the latest cool things to do conveniently for you. What’s ahead for 2015? How about a renewal in domestic arts.

(all those days of baking cookies for the kids was cool after all), food-sourced getaways, kit culture or a brush with mobile romance?

Having self-confidence is figuring out what works for you and then putting it on with confidence. Who knows where it will all end?

Confidence is simple to describe. It is a state of trust in a person and belief in their powers. Self-confidence is a state of trust in yourself and a belief in your own power. And that’s where it all starts to get complicated.

It appears, looking at scientific research conducted in recent years, that self-confidence is a self-fulfilling prophecy. If you think you can do something, you can. If you are worried that you will fail, you likely will. ♡
