Journal Prompt and/or Visualization:

Notice all different kinds of confidence and ways people embody and demonstrate it. You can observe public figures or people you know well or encounter as you’re going about your day.

Pay attention to the qualities you admire and then try them on! You can journal about what you notice and/or close your eyes and imagine stepping into their shoes, seeing through their eyes, feeling what they feel. In this way, you can get a better sense of your preferences and get ideas about how to adapt and make it your own.
