Confidence is something that we all want to have right? When we look at the people, we admire the most, they tend to be very confident. They are confident in their abilities, what they bring to the table of their family, workplace and friendships. For some though confidence doesn't seem reachable. It's something that we struggle with because of mindsets, the things that people told us we could and couldn't do and the unrealistic expectations society puts on us to be more skinny, richer, to be married and have kids. The list is endless. Today we are going to go over some things that are said to make people more confident and secure in who they are.
1. They Get Their Happiness from Within
Happiness is important because in order to be happy with what you do, you have to be happy with who you are. People who are confident are that way because they are happy with their accomplishments and not what people think of their accomplishments
2.They Don’t Pass Judgment
Confident people don’t pass judgment on others because they know that everyone has something to offer, and they don’t need to put down other people in order to feel good about themselves.
3. They Know When and How to Say No
Research conducted at the University of California in San Francisco shows that the more difficulty that you have saying no, the more likely you are to experience stress, burnout, and even depression. Confident people know that saying no is healthy and they have the self-esteem to make their no’s clear
4.They Celebrate Other People
Insecure people constantly doubt their relevance and because of this they try to steal the spotlight and criticize others in order to prove their worth. Confident people, on the other hand, aren’t worried about their relevance because they draw their self-worth from themselves
5. They Aren’t Afraid to Ask for Help
Confident people know that asking other people for help won’t make them seem weak or unintelligent. They know their strengths and weaknesses and they look to others to fill the gaps.
There are several other ways to that confident people operate. I know that with the right mindset and people walking with you through this journey and God giving you confidence that cannot be shaken you will be unstoppable
