Are you confident and resilient? Most people find such qualities fluctuate depending on circumstances. Wouldn't it be great to be poised and mentally strong most of the time though?

Connie Jordan, Las Vegas CEO and Life Coach, acknowledges the struggle and effort it takes to maintain a positive mindset at all times. Below, Mrs. Jordan reveals ten tips that will help you achieve your confidence goals.

Start each day with a positive intention

Your mood when the day begins colors the hours that follow. Luckily, your mind is open to suggestion as soon as you stir in the morning. Instruct your psyche to venture into the day with a positive outlook. Choose not to let anyone steal your good mood, and you'll be impervious to negativity.

Ignite your passion

When you love what you do, you build inner strength and vitality. Your spirit beams with joy. You might be busy, or forget to engage with motivating activities and people. Not making time for them, however, means you lack passion. Schedule time to ignite enthusiasm and watch your well-being soar.

Welcome opportunities for growth

People aren't designed to stay in their comfort zones where it's safe and cozy. Development follows when you stretch your boundaries and embrace the discomfort of change. Welcome opportunities to expand your horizons and you can't help but increase wisdom and inner strength.

Know you make a difference in people's lives

Everything you do has a knock-on effect; it influences how people feel about themselves. You might not usually realize the impact your words and behaviors have on others. Recognize what you do and say matters and you'll know you are valuable and make a difference to the lives you touch.

Remember the people who care about you when you are sad

You might forget people care about you when you're upset. Recall how fond others are of you, though, and you won't feel so alone. Just thinking about the way friends and relatives support you can increase resilience and give you the confidence to cope.

Know you can change your life

Do you ever feel as though you're stuck in a rut? If your daily routine's humdrum and you think there must be more to life, you probably don't know you can change.

Understand you can alter your thought patterns and behaviors. You can change your habits and career. You can change most things about your life; in fact, you just have to take the first step and allow the rest to follow.

Take control of your emotional state

If you imagine you're at the mercy of events over which you have no control, you might be insecure. While you can't always make things go your way, you have the power to control your emotional state.

You are in charge of the way you view what happens in your life. You can look for silver linings and learn from unwanted events, or you can suffer and focus on what you dislike. Grab the reins, and direct your emotions, and you will be confident and strong.

Recognize others acts of kindness toward you

Studies show happy people are aware when others are kind to them. They are grateful, appreciative, and benefit emotionally from other's acts of generosity. Keep your eyes peeled for benevolence aimed in your direction and revel in it when it happens. As a result, your self-esteem and positivity will expand.

Find a spiritual practice or belief that helps you

Resilient folks with a healthy self-image aren't always religious, but they have spiritual beliefs. They have a sense there's something more powerful than them and this 'energy,' for want of a better description, is compassionate and intelligent.

People with confidence and resilience often carry out rituals too. They might meditate to increase peace of mind or run to improve happy hormone production. Find something to believe in and, whether it's cherishing nature or chanting, your confidence and satisfaction in life will grow.

Be aware of your connection with life

Isolation's not a recipe for disaster; it's the feeling you are isolated that can damage you. People who feel lonely don't have a sense of connection with life. They don't see themselves in others, wildlife, nature, or the sky and ocean. Recognize everything's made from the same energy and your buoyancy and self-assurance will rise.

You can't be happy for long without confidence and resilience. Life's full of challenges and coping with them is tough when you are timid and fragile. Fortunately, however, you can construct a solid foundation of self-assurance and buoyancy.
