Self-confidence can be described as self-belief or self-assurance in your own power, in your own abilities, as well as in your personal judgment. Being confident about oneself means you accept yourself, that you think highly or favorably of yourself, that you do not seek anyone’s approval before embarking on any task and that even when all odds are against you, you still believe in your own abilities and you will go right ahead and tackle the situation.
Each one of us, regardless of our status in society, educational background or relationship statuses, have gone, and still go through phases of low self-confidence. This is because once in a while, life presents us with difficult situations that make us doubt our abilities and make us feel like we cannot do anything. That lack of faith in oneself (self-belief), low self-esteem and feeling incapable all point towards a lack in self-confidence. It is, however, relieving to know that self-confidence can be developed, one step at a time.
It is the way we respond to life’s situations, failures and the way we view ourselves during those difficult moments that builds up and develops our confidence. We must not run away from our problems but, rather, go through them in order to develop mentally and spiritually. We need to always trust that we can do anything and that we can be who we want to be if ever we are to be confident. The moment that we get rid of negative thoughts, start believing that we have power and realize our potential is the moment we become great.
