Waking up with confidence, it sounds simple enough, right? I mean all you do is wake up and love yourself. But let’s be real, it’s 2018. EVERYONE. IS. COMPARING. THEMSELVES. TO. SOMEONE. ON. INSTAGRAM.
How does confidence play into sorority recruitment?
It’s a major part.
Confidence is what allows your personally to shine. When you love every single bit of yourself, you show off who you really are. AKA the best version of yourself. You will be glowing when you enter the room. Just like Elle Woods.
Don’t go into sorority recruitment thinking that every sorority member you meet is a mean girl. I promise they are not Regina George.
They are opened minded just like you are.
They want to get to know you.
They want you to show them why you are the P E R F E C T new member.
Want to know 5 ways to stand out from all the other potential new members?
Now you are probably like, okay I got this…. but where do I start.
Here are my top 3 babe tips on how to wake up with confidence.
Babe Tip #1.
It’s simple. You start with believing in yourself.
You own who you are.
You embrace all self-doubt.
You turn your self-doubt into compassion.
How do you do that?
Let’s say you are nervous about all the small talk.
Instead of telling yourself, “I am just not good at meeting people”, you say “I can keep a conversation going with anyone I meet.” It’s basically like magic and a pep talk all in one.
You take any negative thought and make it a positive one. You replace can’ts with cans. You get the idea.
Trust me, the more you tell yourself how amazing you are the more you realize it’s actually true. I mean we all see how amazing you are, now it’s your turn!
This compassion is how you truly love yourself. You know your weakness and strengths, and you don’t let your weakness stand in your way.
Babe Tip #2.
Now that you have got this mind trick down, you have to get outside of your comfort zone. Like really get outside of it!
Try out new things. Take some risks.
Let’s say you are still worried about small talk, start having a conversation with more people. Talk to someone in line at Starbucks. Talk to someone you never really had a conversation with at school.
If you fail or something or does not go according to plan, pick yourself up, dust off your shoulders, and tell yourself it’s okay. Everyone fails. Like EVERY SINGLE PERSON . It’s how you grow. It’s how you gain resilience.
The same applies to getting dropped by a sorority. It hurts the ego a little bit.
Don’t sit there and dwell.
Tell yourself you are amazing.
Tell yourself you W I L L find the perfect sorority.
Go out there and show all the remaining sororities the best version of you.
Let your confidence shine through.
Show them that you are the It Girl of sorority recruitment.
Babe Tip #3.
Stop comparing yourself.
You are you, and that’s amazing. You don’t need to look like Sally Mae. You don’t need to be like Sally Mae. You don’t need to be influenced by Sally Mae. Be you!
When you are not being authentic to who you are, people can see it! Faking it through life will only get you so far.
Don’t be concerned with what you think the sorority want. Show off the best version of you. Dress how you want. Wear your hair how you want. Talk about what you want to know (just not booze, boys, religion, and politics). The sororities want to know you and only you. And guess what… by being yourself, that’s how you find your perfect sorority!
Moral of the story.
Don’t get caught up in thinking you have to fit an image to be in a sorority. It’s 2018 sororities are looking for all types of girls. They want to find the girls who the members are connecting with, so make connections. You know the number one way to make genuine connections…. by being you! Yeah, it really is that simple.
Show off your amazing personality, your amazing style, and don’t forget to embrace your inner It Girl.
