Why You Need Self-Confidence for Success and Happiness

We all have hidden fears that we don’t always want to share with friends. These fears often leave us paralyzed - frozen to the spot - when we want to take steps for our success that are outside of our comfort zone.

When the need to overcome these fears is required, we sometimes choose to take the easy way out instead: hide and run for cover.

But in order to succeed in life, we first have to believe in ourselves and our ability to succeed in achieving what we set out to do.

All this talk about finding ways to achieve success is pointless when we just don’t trust our own talents and abilities.

Without self confidence, we won’t have the tools to face life's challenges with equanimity.

The dilemma we sometimes face is not knowing how to gain self confidence when we don’t really have it in us.

Do we really have to experience success first before we believe in ourselves?

Maybe, but then again, many set themselves up to be discouraged before they’ve even tried anything.

There are simple steps you can take to start making your successes a bit easier to come by.

To make your goals more attainable, you can make it more manageable by breaking down your larger goal into much smaller ones.

The chances for success here then increase as each step is less daunting, and you are less likely to feel overwhelmed.

Then, make sure that you celebrate each small feat that you overcome!

Whether or not you have a positive and strong self image is another important factor.

If you constantly criticize yourself, you will never feel adequate.

Remember, negativity begets more negativity.

This low self image is sometimes the by-product of your life experiences as you face the devastating blows of poor choices in life or troubled life circumstances you may have had to overcome.

You need to realize that these mistakes will never hold you down, as long as you don’t allow them to.

You need to look at where you are at now, not yesterday! What have you learned from any mistakes made in the past?

Use this and let this serve as a guide as you continue on life’s new path.

And then there are people who also have the power to affect the way you look at yourself.

The decision of whether or not spend some toxic time with these individuals is all up to you.

Learn to put your foot down and seek out those who can be more helpful and supportive to your overall self growth.

You need to see yourself as inherently worthy.

Be aware of how unique you are and realize that you are more than capable of contributing to the good of the world.

Pay attention to only those who want what’s best for you and turn a deaf ear to those who just want to put you down or hold you back.

The ones that deserve your time are the ones who recognize your inner strength.

Look at yourself in a more positive light and start to see what you are actually blessed with.

Your self image is intimately intertwined with your destiny.

You have to guard you thoughts against feelings of inadequacy.

The power of a positive vision should never be underestimated.

This is what helped the most successful people on their way to the top.

Rule of thumb states that the clearer the goal is, the higher your self confidence gets.

Even the most capable mind and body need a good dose of self confidence.

Only with trusting yourself and knowing what you are capable of will you ever be able to attain success.

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"
