High or low, our confidence level contributes to how we act or respond to situations or events we encounter each day.

Have you notice, though, that when our confidence in about something in one area of our life is high, somehow other areas of our life don’t seem quite so bad. Likewise when our confidence is low, nothing seems to go our way and so life gets on top of us.

It’s therefore important to continually try and be successful and confident in one area of your life, as that way it’ll lift your spirits in others areas too.

Be bold, and be confident!

Do you sometime wonder why we have to face so many difficulties and so many battles in our lives?

Well, we’re in good company – Remember David, that young boy who fought and defeated Goliath? Before David fought Goliath he fought a lion and a bear. Those previous battles were designed to  train, prepare and build his confidence in readiness for his battle against Goliath.

So let the difficulties and battles you face today, teach and train you and give you confidence for whatever battles you may face.

Has anyone every told you that they “believe in you”?

What does that even mean? It means someone believes in your capability to complete a task or set of tasks, normally when the pressure is on.

Whether anyone has ever actually said these words to you or not, I’m sure you can understand that someone stating that to you may either give you confidence and spur you on, or terrify you and make you scared that you’ll fail.

If you are scared of failing, doesn’t that make it more likely that you will fail?

Don’ t we have to have confidence in ourselves and our own abilities to achieve difficult or pressurised tasks? Having said that, one of the worst things you could do  is be over-confident in your abilities, as just like not being confident at all, over confidence is just as likely to be your downfall when the pressure is on.

So be realistic about your abilities and be confident in them, because you can achieve your goals, and the goals set for you by others, if you have confidence in your ability.

Believe in yourself!

over-confidentThe whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, but wiser people so full of doubts ~ Bertrand Russell

It’s true you know!

I’m sure we can all think of people who fall into the category of “always being so sure of themselves”…and I’m sure they’ve probably proved on many an occasion how much od a fool they are!

Likewise I’m sure we can all think of people who always doubt their own decisions and plans, but are always the ones who have the most realistic plans and most achievable solutions.

Don’t be a fool, be wary of over-confidence as it’ll be your ultimate downfall.

self-confidenceIs it any wonder that some people lack confidence in their ability when there are some who constantly try to impose their own opinions on them.

Are you confident in your own ability, or do other peoples’ opinions drag you down?

Well be confident in yourself, because you’re not, how will anyone else be confident in you. In order to be confident in yourself though, you need to take this advice from Steve Jobs:

Don’t let the noise of other people’s opinion drown out your own inner voice
