The Power of Self-confidence: Ayesha Sayakki

Self-confidence denotes the lofty heights of courage and measures a person’s confidence as to how his stand is infallible. It underlines a person’s magnetism and his aura of personality which are quite essential to his victory and prosperity. Sometimes, a liar escapes detection, for he has the supreme self-confidence to assert himself and fool others. Truthfulness, honesty, patience, compassion, love, etcetera are the positive qualities while anger, deception, dishonesty, untruthfulness are the examples of the negative qualities. We should avoid negative ones and develop the positive qualities to live in an exemplary life.

In fact, self-confidence is one of the priceless positive qualities in everyone’s life. It is the combination of a state of a mind and a strong feeling of self-belief which is commonly used when one needs self-assurance – especially in one’s personal judgemental power, ability. It is that voice which comes from inside and boosts you to do something about which a fear subsists in you.

In today’s epoch, there is a place for those who lack self-confidence because there is no shortage of competition now. Infinite number of people process it and a great number of them are achieving their goals by using self-confidence as a ladder. For the students, self-confidence plays a key aspect of their school life, the higher self-confidence gives more chances to succeed.

Whenever you think of an upcoming event, talk to yourself in a positive language, perhaps the most powerful affirmation of all for building self-confidence is to repeat over and over – 50 or 100 times per day, although, the words as “I can do it. I can do it.”

If you want to do your work better, just say, I love my job, I love my job. One of the favorite affirmations whenever you feel worried about anything, is to cancel it by saying, “I believe in the perfect outcome of every situation in my life.”

However, the confidence is believing in yourself, and feeling comfortable jn your true self-knowing you have worth. If you are confident, people will believe in you. Confidence is attractive, which brings success, helps to connect well with others and you generally feel happier. Only you can say you are not confident. So, what excuses have been stopping you from your confidence?

The self-confidence is the actual belief in your own ability of doing anything, by viewing yourself positively and being realistic to yourself and your environment. In addition, you also need to believe that you have the ability to succeed. Self-confidence is also in you when you feel certain about yourself, your actions, decisions and opinions, and self-reliance. It is a very useful and powerful tool for everyone to achieve goals and fulfill wishes.

The self-confidence can be improved by thinking positively, believing in youself, setting realistic goals and learning upon understanding what self-confidence is; it is incompass to know how a self-confident person is. A self-confident person is an optimistic, loving, independent, assertive, self-respective and self-controlled including what he believes and knows well about his own abilities physically. A self-confident person looks confident with positive body language and good posture. That are, standing, sitting, walking with straight back, grasping hands in front or back of body, walking with wide steps, firm handshakes, making eye contact and smiling are the signs of self-confidence. It is very useful and important to achieve goals and overcome challenges to survive in happy lives. Success welcomes those who have the firm beliefs in their abilities and efforts.

The person who lacks self-confidence is totally opposite. He/she is isolated, inferior, depressed, confused and sensitive to criticism and failure. It doesn’t mean that a confident person always gets success in life, but he/she takes life’s challenges positively. They learn from their mistakes and prolong trying to accomplish success. Don’t let your negative presumptions shake your confidence. Setting realistic goals is an effective practice to boost up one’s self-confidence. We should not set goals too high or too low as both can effect the self-confidence boldy. Too high goals make on under-confidence and the too low goals can make one over-confident as one can achieve it easily.

Keep learning to achieve self-confidence. Learn from your past experiences, self-confidence can’t be built within one day, it takes much time to boost up the confidence level. Just believe in yourself and keep trying so as to build up your confidence level.
