A person who lacks confidence will speak too much. They feel they have to do this to prove their worth to you, and to themselves. By contrast, a truly confident person is secure in their inherent value. They would rather expand their mind than their ego.
7. They Say “No” Often.
True confidence requires an honest and thorough knowledge of self. This involves acknowledging and respecting our limitations – those involving time, energy, money, or any other finite resource.
After all, it’s better to do three things well than to do ten things poorly. People who feel pressured into saying “yes” all the time often find themselves over-committing. This can lead to stress, anxiety, and depression. Set your boundaries, and commit to defending them.
8. They Don’t Pass Judgement On Other People.
To see the value in yourself, you must recognize the inherent worthiness of every human being. We each have strengths and weaknesses. We each have flaws.
We each have something special to contribute to the world. In rejecting another person, we are really rejecting ourselves. This practice may give us a momentary feeling of superiority, but in the end, it will drain our sense of confidence and self-worth.
9. Their Confidence Comes From Within.
For most people, happiness and confidence seem to go hand-in-hand. When one increases, so does the other. In the end, both of these are the result of a deep sense of self and a commitment to self-love. Truly confident people don’t need the approval of others. Their sense of security comes from within.
“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent,” said Eleanor Roosevelt.
Cultivate a sense of self-worth that is so strong it can never be shaken. Know yourself. Love yourself. Care for yourself. Confidence will follow.
