They say that the key to anything, is confidence. It is true, that anything you do in life, should be filled with passion, charisma, and self-assurance. Confidence is something that is essential for bringing the best results for yourself, and the people that you are aiming to please.
We all suffer from a lack of self-confidence from time to time. We sometimes doubt ourselves, even when it comes to activities that we believe we are the most talented in out of anything else we endeavour in.
This lack of self-assurance can begin impacting our performances and quality output. We suddenly find ourselves slipping, as fear and embarrassment replace bravery. The worst part about losing our confidence is how people notice this change so easily. They begin commenting on how you have changed, how you aren’t ‘being yourself’. Losing your confidence is a tragic event, something that has ended the careers of many people. We just stop admiring ourselves, and become deluded over our shortcomings.
Being unconfident is a delusion, something that spawns the misguided beliefs that put out our spark. All it takes to rekindle confidence is clarity. You need to be able to look in the mirror and see yourself for what you truly are: an incredible and highly capable individual.
You will generally have supportive people in your life, who try to bring out the best in you, and admire your special qualities. Seeing yourself through their eyes is an excellent way to evaluate yourself. Even if you do not truly believe you are the person they see you as, this is their whole understanding of you, and it is your duty to appease their standards by being the best you can be.
Then there are the critics and naysayers. Those who exist to tear others down in order to boost their own self-esteem. It’s very easy to be confident when everyone else around you is despondent, thanks to their draining demeanour. You must cut those people out from your life, as they do nothing but suck the life out of people.
It can be difficult to identify these leeches in your life, as many are more subtle and deceiving than they appear to be, cleverly convincing you that they are your ally. It can, on the other hand, be difficult to identify our truest companions, as we are often deaf and blind to the positivity of others, especially when we are in a bad place. At the end of the day, only you can decide on whether to be a winner.
