Confidence is key. Having confidence in your own abilities to accomplish the hopes and dreams that you have set out for yourself is what it is going to take to inspire action within you. The mind is the biggest tool that humans have to their disposal. Being able to at the very least work in congruence with your mind, and at the highest level, be able to control it better than ever will help make life’s tasks easier and easier to deal with.
Before being able to take on any major task or do much of anything in a lifetime, a person must have enough confidence in themselves to fully complete a task. Confidence is one of the major things to get people through anything in life. Simple daily tasks require confidence that they will be completed before they are even started. Having confidence in even the little things can help consciously entertain the notion that little bits of confidence can into bigger confidence in larger aspirations and more difficult activities.
Building confidence is a life-long process. It can take time to get fully acclimated in any situation before one can be fully confident with their actions. This is true in almost any circumstance. We will be less confident the first time we do any task than the 30th time we have done a task. Acquiring skills in sports, ability to speak with confidence in public, being a social person, it all takes time to naturally own the skills, with the goal of soon being so confident in a task that it gets to the point where there doesn’t have to be any extra thought or worry involved, and one can be unconsciously engaged.
To build confidence in yourself, you must be willing to put yourself out there and practice. You can practice alone, or you can practice by performing, but the point is that there must be action taken in any activity before one can ultimately be confident. Take that first step, and put yourself out there on the line. The hardest time is going to be the first time you do anything, and every single time after that it is going to be easier than the last.
If you have any fears, many can be conquered with confidence. Fears can due to the same type of feelings that arise when one is not confident in something. Overcoming fear with confidence in yourself is how most people overcome their fears. Often, people will find that while they may have been unconfident in doing something, by putting in action into gaining more confidence, they feel better about themselves than before, and realize that whatever they feared may not have actually been all that bad.
Taking different opportunities and rolling with what life throws at you takes heaps of confidence. Stress will come from lack of confidence in yourself. The more confident someone is, the less stressed they are. Those who are most stressed, are often not very confident people.
Confident, stress free, and attaining your goals are all major aspects of what most people would consider a happy life. Don’t let your lack of confidence hold you back in life. Continue to put in the work into everything that you do and in time, confidence in your actions will follow.
