Article 1: (Basics of Confidence/Self confidence, Definitions)

“Confidence is generally described as a state of being certain either that a hypothesis or prediction is correct or that a chosen course of action is the best or most effective. Self-confidence is having confidence in oneself.”
From the charismatic confidence of an inspiring speaker, quietly confident doctor’s advice we rely on, everyone admires the certain qualities that people have.

Self-confidence is important in almost every aspect of our lives, yet many people struggle to find it. Sadly, this can be a vicious circle. People who lack self-confidence find it difficult to overcome fear and become successful.

Where there is a will there is a way. There are certain things we have never done before and doing new things may help us succeed and therefore help us in gaining confidence.
Self-limiting beliefs is the biggest obstacle to gaining confidence. There is always a little voice in your head saying “you’re not good enough” “you’ll never make it” “why would she choose you”. These are some of the self-limiting beliefs that deny us from giving our full potential.
Building confidence is not easy and comes with baby steps. At first you learn to crawl, then you walk and only then do you run. Confidence also is gained slowly over a period of time.

On the other hand, arrogance or being too confident about something is the flipside of gaining confidence. Later you start thinking that you are better than someone or too good to do something.

What if you're starting with little or no confidence? How do you build confidence? What are the things that make you more comfortable and confident? How do you get from Point A to Point B? True, self-confidence isn't an overnight acquisition. It takes a lot of time and dedication to realise you are a confident good human being that is worthy of respect and love from others.
