5 Fearless Ways to Fuel your Inner Fire

Confidence always seems to be that secret trait that only a lucky few appear to possess, but I’ve come to realize that it isn’t something that they are inherently born with. Instead they have sought it out and cultivated it, watching their own confidence expand as they experience the world. Nothing worthwhile comes easy, and the major step of gaining confidence is embracing fear and stepping outside of your comfort zone. It doesn’t matter if you take baby steps or giant leaps, anything will do to help you spread your wings and light your inner fire. Though it may feel scary at first, know that you’ll eventually become used to it and you will end up reaching for bigger and better goals. So, go ahead and fuel your inner fire by adopting any of these tips and tricks.

1. Take an improvisation or drama class

Taking either an improv or drama class is a great way to build up your confidence slowly and surely. Playing fun games and letting loose is the perfect way to de-stress and not over think. It will also help with developing your public speaking skills and help you learn new ways of expressing yourself. Also, the main rule of improv is to always say yes, and confidence is just on the other side of yes!

2. Start a sport like roller derby, kick boxing or self-defense classes

The crazier the sport the better, as it teaches you fearlessness and new ways to have fun. Kickboxing and self-defense can give you a sense of confidence in your own physical abilities, and you will be amazed at what you can achieve if you are constant and are putting in your best efforts. Roller Derby is a fantastic team sport that will boost your spirit and let you become a true badass on the rink.

3. Take a solo trip

Everyone knows travel is good for the soul, so why not take a trip. It doesn’t have to be to the other side of the world. Even just to the next town for a weekend away by yourself will do wonders. Traveling alone fosters independence and leads to a greater sense of self and the confidence to face anything.

4. Volunteer

What better way to improve yourself then to help others. Whether you volunteer at a local thrift store, or at an animal shelter, get out there and help in any capacity that you can. You’ll view the world differently and gain a new perspective on life, appreciating everything you have.

5. Dress up for yourself

Put on THE OUTFIT. You know the one, where everyone compliments you and you walk down the street with your head held high and a flirty wiggle to your walk. The kind of outfit that makes you glow from the inside out, giving you the kind of confidence to glance a little bit longer at that cute guy or feel like your strutting down a runway. While it may seem superficial, it’s really not, it’s a way of projecting your inner flame that just needs more coaxing to burn brighter.
