Work on self-confidence
Believe in yourself! People tend to take advantage of those who lack confidence, or have difficulty showing it.
Stand up straight
Straighten your back and keep your head up at all times. Research indicates that people with good posture look and feel more confident than those who slump their shoulders.
Speak your mind. Those who struggle to stand up for themselves rarely make their voices heard, but if you refuse to speak up, how will anything ever change?
Command respect by speaking at a slow, measured pace. Try not to stutter, mumble, or speak softly.
Learn how to say "NO"
Just. Say. No. Turning down requests when necessary is essential to maintaining a position of strength. Don't be too negative though, or you could risk turning into a bully yourself!
