Learn to Assess Your Self confidence & Self Esteem


How confident are you depends on your feelings about yourself. Friends and relatives can give you their assessment but bear in mind that is their perspective. This may be sufficient if all you care about is how people think of you.


However, you may be uncomfortable and uneasy on how you feel internally. You may display confidence to others but internally, you may be apprehensive and worried on whether you can do the job or live up to the people’s expectations.

Your worries and concerns will eat you up and cause you a lot of anxiety and tension. Try to assess yourself and determine your level of self-confidence.

This will help put your mind at ease and give you the proper direction to build up and strengthen your self-confidence.

Confidence in oneself depends on many factors. When you were young and with friends, you might have felt confident speeding on the highway. With more years of experience and slower reflexes, you might not feel as confident driving down the road.

Knowledge and experience are driving factors in bringing up a person’s confidence. Here are some other indicators that could help you assess your level of self-confidence.

Your determination to undertake a situation can heighten your self-confidence. If you know what you want, where and how to get it, then you will be more confident and assured in accomplishing it. You will feel more determined and sure of your actions if you have complete knowledge and control on the undertakings.

You should be properly motivated to achieve your objective and nothing should detract you from it. Your approach must be focused and centered on your goal. If you feel that your actions are noble and highly esteemed by others, you may feel a sense of importance and righteousness in your actions.

Your actions are defensible and respected by others. You believe that what you are doing is right and just. These factors will strengthen your self-confidence.

You should be objective in your actions and in the proper emotional state of mind. Your outlook must be positive and highly optimistic in achieving your goals.

Have a good grasp of your capabilities and optimize on your strengths. You must have a clear understanding of your weaknesses and know how to work around them.

Your sense of achievement is getting the job done in an excellent manner. Be aware that although perfection is aspired, it is seldom met in real life and you must be willing to settle for a job well done.

You can adapt to changes, resolve problems that crop up and still keep sight of the big picture. You take people’s advice in mind when making decisions. Your willingness to take risks demonstrates your ability to act in the face of uncertainty.

You should be ready to put yourself on the line. Evaluate these signs carefully as indicative of confidence and not rashness. Expand your life and take on the responsibilities confidently.

You are a life Saver!!

I recently discovered this site and I can tell you that my life has not been the same. I now come here EVERYDAY and spend at least 1 hour.

I used to spend that time browsing online fashion and beauty magazine which just means that I spend more. Now I have replaced that habit with coming here.

In future I will think about contributing articles as well. Thank you! Thank you!! Thank you!!! and God bless"
