Improving your confidence can help you in all areas of your life. One way you might not think it could help you is by making you better with money. If you’re more confident, you can handle your money more confidently and maturely. You could save money and even make more if you work on making yourself more confident and assertive.
Stick Up for Yourself in Sale Situations
With newfound confidence, one of the things that can help you most is being able to stick up for yourself. When you buy anything where a salesperson is helping you, you can easily be pressured into spending money you don’t want to spend - unless you’re confident enough to say no.
Stop Spending to Feel Good
With more confidence and higher self-esteem, spending money to make yourself feel good is less of an urge. You won’t feel like buying chocolate or a new gadget to cheer yourself up is such a necessity, and you can save more money.
You Don’t Need to Show Off
You can also find that with more confidence, you stop buying things to show off to others. You don’t care what others think as much as you used to, so you’re able to resist buying anything that’s just a big status symbol.
Try Out Some Haggling Skills
A more confident outlook could give you the power to take control when you spend your money. You could try out some haggling skills next time to make a purchase to knock some money off the original price.
