Building Self confidence
A lot of people try to mask their insecurities with false confidence – being arrogant, trying to be noticed everywhere,always trying to prove right and many other ways.
I used to be a loud crowd mouth, very bossy back then in high school and I thought this had something to do with a high self confidence, but as I got to college and out, I realized I was nothing close to it. I had great ideas in mind but I won’t dare to try them because I might fail and people will laugh at me. So I held my peace.
Then someone called me to look at my confidence level which I did and it was actually very low.
What is Self Confidence
Self confidence is the ability to move from thought to action, just as Mel Robinson explains. it is not a personality trait but a skill to be acquired through continuous practice . Our confidence is our positive energy that drives us and cheers us even when everyone else won’t.

It is a growth process and you must be willing to take the gradual steps. That is when you will see yourself grow in confidence. A personal guide is also made available for you to rate yourself on how confident you are at present and the various areas you will need to work on on yourself.
How do you know confident people
Confident people are seen in the way they walk, they carry themselves elegantly, how they interact with others.
Opinion or approval is not their thing
Never feel jealous or insecure of others’ success
Your approval is not what they are waiting for. They may ask for them but their decisions are solely dependent on their judgement.
This is one of the most stand out quality of confident people which make them shine among the crowd. They are not jealous about what you are good at, they never wish to be others.
Speak when required
They won’t be blabbering all the time but whatever they speak, it’s gold. The save their best for the occasion and hit the right ammunition at the right time.
Manage situations well
The ups and downs of life are inevitable. Things may or may not go your way all the times. At the time of challenge, the fact does not matter but rather what we choose to do in that situation. Confident people are willing to take challenges and never run from them
They know how to approach others. They never feel uncomfortable among people and create a nice environment for others to interact.
Confident people never think about confidence, they know they have it and they feel
Low self-confidence can be self-destructive, and it often manifests itself as negativity. Confident people are generally more positive – they believe in themselves and their abilities, and they also believe in living life to the full.
Building self confidence is a journey that continues over time. little by little and a step at a time ,you will get.
