COMES FROM LATIN WORD FIDERE. TO TRUST HAVING SELF CONFIDENCE IS HAVING TRUST IN ONESELF.
To me, confidence is just as important, If not more important, than learning and all the incredible technology we have at our fingertips. I believe with more confidence. You can achieve more things. It gives us more possibilities to keep trying. We see what we can achieve, not what we can't. We then can acknowledge the things we tried. Didn't see them as failures. We saw them as feedback and how we could succeed next time. With the added confidence we actually, try living our dreams and purpose. For myself personally, Confidence didn't come naturally, and I still happily work on it every day. I see the opportunities confidence brings. Can you?
Can you imagine the difference, never to think of failure again?
It's only feedback!
Would that make a change to your confidence too!
Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up. Thomas Edison
Why is being confident so important?
Confidence is allowing yourself to be HAPPY just as you are naturally and feeling comfortable in your own skin. Being your true self is beautiful. Much easier to live your life being you, RIGHT! Nobody can take your confidence away, or less you let them.
You have to know your own self-worth. We all have so much to learn, give and share.
You will find you'll have a better connection with people when you're showing up with more confidence because it looks so good on you. Even on those days when you're showing more confidence than you feel, you will achieve more pushing through that little fear, and people will believe in you.
