Hi folks! Welcome to yet another blog. Today in this particular blog we will talk about self-confidence.
What do you mean by the term self-confidence ?
Self means your self and confidence means to be really amazingly
sure of one’s ability to do things well.
Concept of self-confidence: if there is a particular activity that you
are very very fond of doing and you feel that you have absolutely mastered the art of doing it in the right manner it means that you are very self-confident about that particular thing.
If you want to be self-confident you need to trust in your own instincts.
Nowadays a lot of people suffer from a low self-esteem .
Well, self-esteem and self-confidence are two diverse subjects however they are closely linked together.
What is self confidence?
Self-confidence is a superpower. Once you start to believe in yourself, the magic starts happening and I’m sure you all have experienced this in one time on another in your life wherein you have really felt self-confidence in yourself and because of which magic starts happening & you feel like you’re the king or the queen of the world .
So that is the power of believing in yourself and being really confident of yourself.
Let’s take a look at certain reasons why people are not confident in their own abilities.
When you try to copy or ape somebody you really become fake and that is something which doesn’t make you self-confident.
Personal criticism affects you – when you get really affected by any feedback especially if negative feedback coming your way and you try to become a little defensive on that feedback and you don’t take it in a positive manner. This is when you’re not self-confident.
You don’t have supportive people around – when your network of friends, colleagues and family members do not support you is when you feel a lack of self-confidence in your own abilities.
Friends now let’s take a look at how can you become more self confident.
- Believing in yourself in terms of positive affirmation-you continuously need to repeat positive affirmations to yourself.
- Getting out of the comfort zone-do one thing that scares you every day. The idea is to get out of your comfort zone and get out of your fear zone get into a zone which makes you uncomfortable so do something like anything which you get scared of initially it could be bungee jumping or it could be hiking or it could be swimming if you are afraid of water
- Introspection-Question your inner critic. Well human beings are the best critic of themselves .So try to personalize it yourself by spending time with yourself during an introspection period and try to be your best critic.
Let’s understand people who are confident and what are their traits –
They are people who live in the present moment
They don’t think about the past
They don’t think about the future
They are very very balanced in thinking only of the present moment
They know the strengths and weaknesses
We should all go into creating the personality that exudes self-confidence Hence my dear friends it is really essential that you are self-confident.
