Like a scene in a movie. The moment the most popular girl steps into the room and everyone stops to stare. I am not referring to the blonde girl, dressed in pink with a puppy in her purse. I am referring to the class President who helps everyone with their homework.
She always seems to know all the right answers and willing to lend a helping hand. I am almost certain that at some stage you encountered a similar situation and wondered how he/she pulled it off.
Confidence isn’t walking into a room thinking that you’re better than everyone, it’s walking in and not having to compare yourself to anyone at all. One needs to realize that nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent and that is undoubtedly powerful. As you wake up each morning, make an oath to yourself.
This oath is about running your own race and like the girl in the movie recognize her positive attributes and emulate them .However this doesn’t take away your self-worth, it rather serves as a motivation to be a better version of yourself each day. Confidence remains to be one of the most essential ingredients of success in all spheres of one’s life. Without it, it becomes challenging to take risks and seize the opportunities right in front on you.
Being that one friend that is never confident enough to stand up for him/her self and speak their mind becomes a burden to the rest of the group at some stage. If you don’t believe in yourself and your abilities how would you expect someone to do so.
Thus confident people know who they are, where they come from and where they are headed to. Don’t limit yourself at any point in your life, simply because you’re not confident enough to take on the challenge. Like any other attribute, confidence is molded and crafted into a being. A great sense of self belief is required.
Confidence is believing that you can and that you’re half way there. Believing in giving your best, be it preparing kapana, debating, driving a taxi or drawing. But belief is not enough. The secret is embedded in mastering it. This requires dedication, discipline and persistence. And ultimately leads to breading confidence.
Confidence remains to be an art mastered daily. Making a mistake doesn’t make you less confident. The ability to detect the mistake and learn from it breads confidence. I believe that looking and feeling great is not only a sign of respect but also confidence. So as you wake up each morning, dress like you’re about to land a million dollar deal.
Do your hair at ‘Meme Anna’s’ salon and ask Courage the barber to trim your signature style. Apply that red ‘Mac’ lipstick and spray a great dose of your ‘Gucci’ perfume. Lift your head above your shoulders. Because self-confidence is a beautiful attribute, rock it and own it!
