Building your confidence

with one comment

Confidence comes with knowledge. Confidence does not mean being rash and aggressive. It means being able to deal with situations and to be able to talk to people in a polite, assertive way. The following are some of the suggested tips to boost your confidence:

  • Confidence begets confidence, meaning if you speak with confidence it instills confidence in people around you.
  • If you are afraid to speak in public, practice in front of a mirror, learn a speech by heart and speak on every opportunity that comes your way
  • Maybe some people will laugh at you initially but just continue, learn from your mistakes; soon you will become a confident speaker.
  • Be comfortable with who you are and develop skills that you admire in other people. It could be an ability to organise events, the ability to write or to make people laugh. It is a rare gift.
  • Remember the confident picture you see in people has been cultivated with care and definitely with hard work.
  • Do not associate with people who pull you down. There are many such sorts who are ready to stop you and hinder your progress.
  • We are surrounded by people with aptitude and attitude both. People who are ready to give you suggestions are ready to advise you too. The wise saying about free advice is to pass it on.
  • You must heed wisdom, to people who are close to you and people who love you and care for you.
  • Remember the saying “fools rush where angels fear to tread”, which means taking a step impulsively can be dangerous. Be confident but not fool hardy.
  • Believe in yourself and in what you do. This will definitely lead you to success. When you are confident it will show in your words, expressions and mannerisms.
  • When you start on a chosen path, you will have hundreds of people following you. Confidence is also humbling.
  • Work on it and enjoy the difference, you have to experience it to believe it.
