How to Become As Confident As Sex And The City’s Samantha



If you’re a Sex and the City fan like I am, you likely envy certain qualities of those killer Career Girls. Carrie is creative and spunky. Charlotte is artistic and poised. Miranda is professional and assertive. And Samantha is confident (and perhaps a bit risqué).

Although we can all learn a thing or two from each of these women, Samantha’s killer confidence is something desired by many. So how do you get that level of confidence?

#1 Do some self-exploration

In order to be confident, you must first have a thorough understanding of your strengths. These can include aspects of your personality or perhaps a special skill set that you possess. Once you are able to identify what these are, make it your job to emphasize them and use them to pursue your dreams.

As Samantha says: “I love you, but I love me more. I have been in a relationship with myself for 49 years and that’s the one I need to work on.”

#2 Appreciate your inner (and outer) beauty

Although Samantha tends to flaunt her assets, she is able to do that because she is secure from the inside out. Stay true to who you are.

As Samantha says: “If you listen to everything that goes through your head, you’re going to go nuts.”

#3 Step outside of your comfort zone

If you want big rewards then you have to take big risks. Once you step outside your comfort zone, stop focusing on the trivial and challenge yourself to dream bigger and achieve your wildest dreams. Just remember it’s okay to make mistakes along the way.

As Samantha says: “The right guy is an illusion. Start living your lives.”

Although easier said than done, I know. Confidence is something that must be practiced until it becomes second nature. Just remember, confidence is attractive!

    I love the ‘As Samantha says’ moments. I forget what an awesome character she is. Sometimes it’s easy just to put the confidence down to arrogance but it’s great to remember the strength and self assuredness that comes from behind the confidence. Awesome post!

    Love Samantha! But I think I’m more of a Carrie Bradshaw – like 60/40 :) It goes to show Samantha still has some great influence in me!
