Attention! Having confidence is good for you

  ” Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit.”

 – E.E. Cummings

Confidence is one of the most important ingredients for a successful life, business and career. Having the self-confidence to fearlessly do anything you set your mind to- imagine what a wonderful thing it must be!

For all the ladies out there, please stop comparing yourself with other people to determine who you should have been! You need to be confident about who you are and be thankful that the strengths you have are just more than enough.

You know what confident people look like, the advantages they get, and that it’s something worth emulating. How do you get there, though? It is the confidence that makes them stand out!

Here’s why you should boost your self confidence:

Upward mobility at work

It goes without saying that confidence a will open up ways for promotion.

This doesn’t just apply to the workplace. A study by the University of Texas showed that students who received some expression of confidence in their ability—even while receiving criticism—performed better later on than those who were simply told to aim for higher standards.

Helps in giving interview


Going for a job interview is probably one of the most uncomfortable things to have to do. Before the interview you are nervous and there is a list of questions buzzing above your head!

You need to come across as confident: confident in your abilities, that you can do the job that you’ll fit in with the culture and confident enough that people will generally enjoy working with you.

Discovering new things

Those with confidence want to be life-long learners. Even when they are experts in their fields, they have a learner’s mindset, knowing there is so much more in life to achieve and so many ways to grow.

Confident makes you lucky


Confident people tend to make their own good luck. Some of the “luckiest” people in the world are also the most confident in themselves. We all know people who are seemingly on an endless roll of good fortune; confidence begets good fortune.

Confidence leads to motivation


Confident people simply tend to be more motivated, work harder, and communicate better. What are some elements needed to achieve the highest levels in whatever you do? Motivation, hard work and communication. There’s a definite tie-in there.

Remember self-confidence is a skill you can learn, just like any other skill. You don’t have to accept low self-confidence as your life sentence. You can feel empowered and proud of who you are and what you can achieve.
