WHAT IS A SELF CONFIDENCE?
Self-confidence is a feeling of trust in your abilities, qualities, and judgment. It is how we feel about ourselves and our abilities. Self-confidence is nothing more than a sense of power in you. It’s the feeling of certainty that you can accomplish whatever you set your mind to.
We need to practice self-acceptance, feeling OK about ourselves and others regardless of the existing conditions. If we make mistakes, hurt or offend other people, it may be appropriate to make amends but it need not lead to low self-confidence.
DOUBTING YOUR ABILITY
The desire to be confident in yourself means a willingness to change your state of mind. Your state of mind is essentially your mood at any given time of day. Your attitude is influenced by how you feel about yourself at that point in time. For example, if you constantly doubt your ability to do something, then you will not believe you can do it. More over, confidence draws from a powerful sense of self-belief. If you‘ve been drowning yourself in negative thoughts, confidence is not going to come easily.
SELF-CONFIDENCE THROUGH PRACTICE
Confidence comes from within, and you can create more at any time. Confidence is not something you have, it is something you create.
I feel, if one tried to do the thing he fears and practices it regularly, he can develop some self-confidence. Self-confidence is not an attribute, but rather, a skill that one needs to hone. You must consider the importance of “persistence” and the immediate need to stop negative self-talk. And basically steer away from all the negatives and find ways to overcome them or be better at the positives, i.e. focus on all your good things. You need to get out of your comfort bubble and develop the SKILL of self-confidence to succeed.
Be positive, get a good hobby, and talk yourself up to feel confident. Always try to stay focused on your positives to get rid of low self-confidence. Confidence is an internal system based on experiences and our environment. Talking positive and using therapy as a tool for self-development can be massively beneficial.
Confidence comes from competence. Competence comes from repetition. Repetition happens when you interpret failure in a positive way (positive affirmations to create good beliefs). Others can have confidence in you only when you are confident in yourself.
WHAT DOES A CONFIDENT PEOPLE LOOK LIKE?
Confident People look strong, sure of themselves. They are standing tall and their shoulders are back, upright. They make eye contacts, their head is up not down. Anyone can develop confidence. Some might have to work on it harder than others because they have conditioned themselves into a lack of confidence for much of their life. But anyone can develop confidence. Even the majority of shy people have moments where they aren’t shy like around people they trust maybe family, friends or their partners: moments where they can be themselves fully. Which means you can make confidence permanent if you consciously decided to be the person and do the things you do not just around you trust the most, but all the time.
Being confident doesn’t mean you are loud and it isn’t about being the one that has to be noticed. It is the opposite. It’s knowing that you are great, without having to be seen. It is the silent winner, it is the humble champion. If you lack confidence and committed to finding the answers, you can change. Unlock your greatest version of yourself, your true nature.
DON’T COMPARE YOURSELF WITH ANY ONE
Confidence is not comparing yourself with anyone. Comparing yourself to another person is not the right thing to do at all. You are not above anyone. You are not below anyone either. How do you know that you have a confidence? When you can get to the place in your life where you don’t compare yourself with anyone and you are good enough to yourself not to others…that’s confidence. All you need is changing your mindset. Confidence can be developed in many ways. You can start with your physiology or posture.
IDENTIFY YOUR STRENGTH
Build Your Confidence by Identifying Your Strengths. Finding your strengths is a good place to start. The more you do, the more you convince yourself what you are capable of. Ignore your weaknesses and focus on your strengths.
Being confident doesn’t mean you’re completely sure of yourself at all times. Creating confidence is not about knowing at all; it is about trusting that no matter what happens in a particular situation, you’ll be able to handle and learn from the outcome.
