Having the right tools in life can help each and everyone of us get through life maybe just a little easier! The next tool in your bag is confidence. You might be asking yourself why and how is that going to help me? Let's first look at the definition of the word confidence.
Confidence~ a feeling or consciousness of one's powers or of reliance on one's circumstance: faith or belief that one will act in a right or proper, or effective way: the quality or state of being certain; the quality or state of being certain; certitude; confidence of success. The opposite of being confident is self doubt or insecure. If you noticed I stated a sentence twice it's because, I believe certain things stated more than once, can help drive it home!
Confidence is half your battle when it comes to getting a job , even keeping a relationship or attracting someone to you. When your confident, people see it in you. The way you carry yourself has so much to do with being or becoming successful! When we don't have confidence, it's very easy not to feel worthy. You become self doubting and insecure which can have serious effects on your job and relationships in your life. I believe confidence is a state of mind. So next time you begin to feel insecure ~ Stop yourself! Say to yourself as many times as you need, that I am a wonderful person and people like me. I do have have more tips for you, but I do need to hear from you first. So what are you waiting for? Live life and move forward in confidence!
