Confidence is a realistic feeling of being sure and thinking what you are doing is right gracefully.
Are failures important?
Are successes important?
Focusing more on successes and less on failures can boost self-confidence.
Confidence can be innate or inborn, but it flourishes and deepens the meaning of confidence in your life over days and time. Confidence might come and go.
Someday you might be way too confident, and somedays, you’ll feel drained.
Feeling the essence of confidence is more important than being confident.
One way to realize this is that confidence is like building up a part of your muscle — the more you work hard on it, the easier it will become.
There might be days when you know the answer, but you don’t have the confidence to say it aloud. This causes a turmoil of stress or anxiety and also some heavy flow of hormones in your body.
It is very much normal to face them but making it a habit can pull you down somewhere.
Confidence is not something that you’d achieve in a day or two, it is a practice where relaxation is important as well as knowing yourself like the weaknesses and strengths.
Confidence can make you feel very strong both from outside and inside, with peace and happiness. Because in the end, it is only you who is going through that roller coaster phase.
So here we come,
WHAT IS SELF-CONFIDENCE?
A person develops confidence when they believe they can successfully do something by their proper judgment, knowledge, and past experiences.
For example, if You’re sitting for a job interview, it’s natural to be nervous and feel anxious, but the feeling of impressing people on the other side of the seat is important.
Okay, let me ask you to think about a situation,
Imagine or think of a time when you felt extremely confident in any scope of work?
Did you feel that electricity in your body? That adrenaline rush? That sense of conquering the world?
You know self-confidence can bring so much goodness to you. Self-confidence does a lot and plays a significant role in our life. It boosts our self-esteem, tones down stress, and often pushes us to do better. But most importantly, it makes us feel upright about ourselves.
How can self-confidence impact your life?
Your happiness and self-esteem will increase: What is self-esteem?
Self-esteem is one’s evaluation of worth and value.
So, self-esteem and self-confidence are not the same but are closely related. Your self-esteem and confidence increase when you believe in your talents, capabilities, worth, and potential.
Self-esteem increases when you believe you’re worthy and capable of fulfilling your desires and dreams—accepting your failure and making that your power tool for success.
So if you feel good about yourself and your decisions in life, you’ll be happier than ever, which increases your self-esteem and confidence.
- You’ll feel more motivated to act:
If someone is confident in any particular field of work, they are more likely to take responsibility to complete a task than someone less confident.
If you’re confident in your abilities, you will feel more motivated, and also the people you’re working with will also want to trust you more.
This takes us to our next section:
- People will trust you:
When you are confident in your abilities, people are likely to listen to you, trust you, and follow you.
You’re working on a group project, and one had to be a leader.
Person A says, “I know I can and will work hard for this group, plus I got better ideas.
Person B says, “I don’t really like leadership roles, but I could try if you all want me to.”
So here we take a look at two different people. We would work with person A
anytime because he seems more confident and convincing.
If you are confident, you’re more likely to be followed and looked up to.
Many ways you can build your confidence:
- Knowing yourself: Get to know yourself, meaning knowing your strengths and weaknesses and accepting them not as imperfections but as something to improve.
- Be prepared: When you are ready to do something, you’re more confident in accomplishing a task successfully.
- Stay positive: Positivity is a key component of building self-confidence. It keeps you from beating yourself up after a setback or mistake.
- Knowing the worth: Know what is actually making you feel less confident, and work towards it. Focus on the variable and know-how that variable can add to your life because once you start getting the right responses from that worthy variable, you feel happy and good about working towards it.
- Body language: sitting upright, with a smile on your face, that positive energy around like you own the entire property, and also moving your hands freely, and eye contact make you feel confident.
Don’t we say fake it till you make it?
That is exactly what am saying; let the world know you’re a serious competitor and very proud of your work. If the world knows it, you will get half of your confidence.
In the end, I’d like to conclude that, Self-confidence is not always that easy to achieve, but it’s something that everyone deserves to experience.
It is something that everyone should know how it feels to be confident.
Do you know how fuel works? Although it eases your travel, you’ll need people who inspire you to get that fuel.
There are several reasons why confidence is very important in our professional lives and in our daily lives.
To sum up everything, it affects your happiness, self-worth, and self-esteem. Most importantly, SELF.
Try being the best version of yourself every single day, but don’t forget to love yourself.
