What is confidence …
……it’s a mere potence of a personality to put forth or present itself without
getting anxious about others’ opinions.
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 one's self.
Confidence can be described as a belief in one's ability to succeed.
Striking a healthy balance can be challenging. Too much of it and you can
come off as cocky and stumble into unforeseen obstacles, but having too
little can prevent you from taking risks and seizing opportunities—in school,
at work, in your social life, and beyond.

5. What is Self-Confidence?
Two main things contribute to self-
confidence: self-efficacy and self-
We gain a sense of self-efficacy when
we see ourselves (and others similar
to ourselves) mastering skills and
achieving goals that matter in those
skill areas.This is the confidence
that, if we learn and work hard in a
particular area, we'll succeed; and it's
this type of confidence that leads
people to accept difficult challenges,
and persist in the face of setbacks.
6. WHAT SELF CONFIDENCE ACTUALLY MEANS
This overlaps with the idea of self-esteem , which is a more general sense that we
can cope with what's going on in our lives, and that we have a right to be happy.
Partly, this comes from a feeling that the people around us approve of us, which we
may or may not be able to control. However, it also comes from the sense that we are
behaving virtuously, that we're competent at what we do, and that we can compete
successfully when we put our minds to it.
Some people believe that self-confidence can be built with affirmations and positive
thinking . At Mind Tools, we believe that there's some truth in this, but that it's just as
important to build self-confidence by setting and achieving goals –
thereby building competence. Without this underlying competence, you don't have
self-confidence: you have shallow over-confidence, with all of the issues, upset and
failure that this brings.
7. Without a having a minimum level of
confidence, a person simply cannot expect
to achieve the true heights of glory and
triumph, no matter how much skillful he or
she is or how much hard work is put in by
the person concerned.
The primary cause of such a situation is
that even if the person is capable of
achieving great heights in life, he or she will
definitely yield to the pressure and
competition which have always been a
dominating factor in any form of test or
It is at this particular juncture that the
person needs to hold his or her nerves
without getting nervous and give his or her
best with the required confidence and
SELF CONFIDENCE A PREREQUISITE
8. A THEME WHICH INITIATES POWER TO SELF
Self Confidence is the key to success, or we can say the first step to success. If a
person has self confidence, he has won half the battle.Those people who have self
confidence at work, school, and in their daily life always appear on top of world.
Everything seems to go right for these people and they always seem to present
themselves as calm, collected and successful in everything they do
. If you pay attention, you might notice that these self confident people usually are successful in
every area of their lives. Is this because they are smarter? Or is it because they have more money?
Maybe they are just lucky?The reality is that none of these things are true. Self confident people
understand the impact of believing in themselves and relying on their abilities.
This confidence ultimately creates opportunities for success and with each new success, another
self confidence building block is put into place. Success builds self confidence with each new
achievement. Self confident people perceive themselves as able to achieve those things they set
out to do and this perception creates reality in their lives.
9. LET YOURSELF GO…
Self-confidence is something that cannot be taught. It is up to the individual
to decide how much belief that they possess inside of themselves. I am at the
point where I realize that I must first believe in myself before others will
believe in me. Nobody teaches us to be happy or sad.They are natural
feelings that come along as we develop mentally, physically, emotionally and
When you get to the point where you allow others to dictate how you
feel about life, you have to stop and take an internal survey. Ask yourself if
your lack of self-confidence and self-assurance is holding you back from
being the best that you can possibility be. Most often these feelings come
from people allowing the negativity of other people to overcome them.You
have to be willing to take control of your life and whatever is holding you
back. So often we, as a people, look for the validation from society before we
validate ourselves. I have allowed society to determine how I should look,
dress and feel. It is time for me to take a stand and be in control of my own
