How do you walk? Do you strut or maybe you’re a shuffler? Do you stride with long steps and a determination or do you skip? The way you walk says a lot. Like, a lot a lot. Today I challenge you to go to the supermarket, the main street of your town or the school pick up, even in your living room and walk like the most confident person you know.

Top Model Style!


For this one I was really, really tempted to just film people walking down the street. I’d crop their heads off like some current affairs type show. They’d be headless torsos and legs strutting down the street. Confident, not confident; one by one marking them off and judging them by the way they walk. But really, that’s a bit stalkerish, right?

So you’re going to have to get out there, people watch. Look at the posture, the way they move, the pace and the shape of them. Use all this to determine what your best confident person walk looks like. After today you may never use this challenge again, maybe you will, but take the time to do it. What is it about them that make them look so sure? And what are you doing differently?

Daily Challenge: Create a ‘Confident Person’ walk for yourself.

    Am going to give it a go! I need to shake things up a bit and I think a strut might be called for. You are so right, some people ooze confidence and their walk and stance has a lot to do with it.

    As I said in a previous comment to you on another post, I already do this. I know I walk with confidence and I’ve been told as much but even though I’m walking with my shoulders back, my head held high and like I’m the hottest thing since sliced bread, inside I’m the complete opposite. I guess I’m managing to do that whole “fake it til you make it thing” on the outside, while completely crapping myself on the inside!!

    • Well one day I plan to check out your walk for myself. Keeping working it lady.

  • I love a good strut. I muck around with my walk all the time. Sometimes it’s skipping, or walking backwards, or pretending I am a model. Anything for a laugh and my kids think I’m billiant, so WIN!
