Highly confident people believe in their potentials to achieve in life. If you fail to be self confident, others will never perceive you as capable.
There can be no failure to a man who has not lost his courage, his character, his self respect, or his self-confidence. He is still a King. – Orison Swett Marden
Self-confidence is the self assurance we give ourselves about our abilities to perform a number of activities that requires our ability to judge, make decisions and respond accordingly. Self confidence increase when we have gained mastery over a particular task and the positive belief that we will be able to accomplish once again.
To walk with swagger and improve your self-confidence, watch out for these fifteen things highly confident people don’t do.
1. They don’t make excuses.
Highly confident people take ownership of their thoughts and responsibility of their actions. They don’t blame the traffic for being tardy at work; they simply accept they were late at work.
They don’t sidetrack their short-comings with excuses like “I didn’t get enough time.” or “I am not worthy enough of this.” They work on themselves to get to where they deserve to be.
2. They don’t avoid doing the scary thing.
Highly confident people know how to domesticate fear.
They are highly aware of their shortcomings and drawbacks. They know that they need to overcome the fear which holds them back only to reach where they are supposed to be.
3. They don’t live in a bubble of comfort.
Highly confident people avoid the comfort zone, because they know that the success recipe lies just outside it.
They are thrilled by the uncertainty, therefore actively pursue the feeling of discomfort. For them giving up on comforts is the most crucial step to achieving the best.
