What is self-Confidence? Self-confidence means you are the owner of your life. You know yourself. You believe in yourself. You believe in your ability to get things done. It means that you know who you are, what your strengths and weaknesses are, and what makes you really happen.

Self-confidence is attractive. If you are a confident person, people will want to follow you. If you are confident, people will do anything for you. People will move toward you. People will invest their money in you- in your business. If you want to succeed in life, in your business, in your relationships, you must believe in yourself. You must believe in your ability to get things done.

Self-confidence is contagious. If you believe in yourself, people will see it. You don’t need to fake it. If you don’t believe in yourself, if you lack self-confidence, people will see it. So don’t fake it till you make it. People will not believe in you if you don’t believe in yourself.

Rosabeth Moss kanter says, “The best resolutions will go nowhere without the confidence to stick with them.” People follow a confident leader. They believe in a confident leader. They know that he or she is capable of doing what he or she says he or she will do. In other words, they talk the talk and walk the walk. A confident leader is an honest leader. They don’t play game with their people.

Why you must have it.

To make progress in life, to succeed in life, you must believe in yourself. When you are a confident person, a lot of things happen. Your self-esteem goes up. You don’t need to prove your self-worth to anyone. You attract confident people into your cycle. Confident brings success to you. It increases your social presence. It gives you the freedom to make your own choice. People don’t have to make your choice for you. It motivates you to start something, because you have the courage to handle anything that stands in your way. It allows you to be who you are, and you don’t have to apologize unnecessary for small issues.

If you lack self-confidence, people will move away from you, because they don’t trust you. They don’t trust your ability to get things done. You will find it difficult to integrate into the society. You can boost your self-confidence. Let see how you can do that.

To boost your self-confidence, one thing will really help you to get it done: do the thing that you scared to do. That is the best way to boost your self-confidence. Face your fear. Do difficult things. Talk to your difficult boss (with respect). Take that hard science course that you never want to take. Embrace difficult situations, and your self-confidence will go up. You can do it.
