Confidence gives us the freedom to pursue our true dreams when it comes to careers. Confident people put themselves out there – they go for fame, fortune or a combination of the two.
Meek and mild personalities who are loaded with self doubt are too timid and shy to make a name for themselves. After all – who would listen to them?
Confidence enables us to pursue romantic interests with ease. A confident man or woman walking into an establishment has no trouble making eye contact and smiling before initiating a conversation with someone they like.
But even a handsome man or beautiful woman could miss out on the love of their life due to a deficiency in confidence. And confidence doesn’t spare beautiful people – many of them are riddled with personal criticism on the inside.
Confidence helps us make the right decisions when it comes to raising our children. A confident Mom or dad sets the rules and boundaries and is firm and vocal about them – including how others interact with their child.
There are many parents who lack confidence and always seem to defer to others to raise their kids. They let their peers, the teachers, law enforcement, and even the child himself be responsible for how that person is raised – all because they don’t want to have to answer to anyone about their decisions or take responsibility for any outcomes.
Confidence can assist you in living a better life. Confident people go places and do things. They aren’t afraid of being seen or of acting silly in public.
Someone whose meter is low on confidence will often walk with their head and eyes down, unable to look others in the eye. They attend functions only when they have to, and try their hardest to blend into the surrounding unnoticed.
I don’t want to see you suffering anxiety in any area of your life when it comes to feeling confident. Whether it’s your big butt or nasally voice or low GPA in high school or an ex who told you that you weren’t worth anything – none of it matters when it comes to confidence.
Don’t worry if you feel like yours has been depleted for too long. We’re going to find ways to build the supply back up so that you can take on anything and have peace of mind doing it.
