Confidence

It is time again to  re-strengthen my confidence.  I have done plenty in life, finished high school, got a college degree, taken care of myself for many years.  I know I can do it but every, once in a while I have to reboot the system and rebuild my confidence.

What is confidence?

The Dictionary: A feeling of self-assurance arising from one’s appreciation of one’s own abilities or qualities.

“Self-confident people tend to see their lives in a positive light even when things aren’t going so well, and they are typically satisfied with and respect themselves.”

So, what do you do, if you don’t happen to be one of those self-confident people?  How do you make yourself a self-confident person?

Theodore Roosevelt said, “Each time we face our fear, we gain strength, courage, and confidence in the doing.”  So, in other words we need to face our fears and that will improve our confidence.  Henry Ford said, “Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you are right.”  We have to take control of our lives.  In doing that we take control of your self-confidence.

I have also found that it helps to do something that I know I am good at.  An art project, a craft.  The feeling of accomplishment helps me to remember that I can do anything.  Exercise also helps.  Gives your endorphins a jolt and makes you feel better.

So, get out there, set some goals, accomplish some things and improve your self-confidence.
