Let's talk today abotu confidence and why it is so important to helping you create your best life.  But first, here is the Quote of the Day...

If you have no confidence in self, you are twice defeated in the race of life
– Marcus Garvey
Confidence is a belief in oneself, the conviction that one has the ability to meet life's challenges and to succeed—and the willingness to act accordingly. Being confident requires a realistic sense of one’s capabilities and feeling secure in that knowledge.

Why is it important?

Being confident helps you make instant connections and build relationships and can also help you effectively handle conflict
Projecting confidence helps people gain credibility, make a strong first impression, deal with pressure, and tackle personal and professional challenges. It’s also an attractive trait, as confidence helps put others at ease.

6 Reasons which prevent you from being more confident

  1. Limiting Beliefs- What you do tell yourself eventually determines your confidence level
  2. Expectations-Over-expectation always leads to under-performance
  3. Social Circle- If you are in the company of negative thinkers then, it won’t be long before it starts rubbing on you.
  4. Past Failures- Your past failures keep making you fail- Stop replaying Failures
  5. Lack of Knowledge- uncertainty and incompetence creates fear and lack of confidence.
  6. The Unknown-Fear of the unknown is a silent killer of your confidence

Principles of how to be Confident

If you want to learn how to build confidence, you must be willing to change your state. Your state is essentially your mood at any given time of day.
