What is confidence? I believe confidence is all about being positive concerning what you can do-and not worrying over what you can’t do. She can walk into a room and people take notice. They are intrigued, not necessarily because of her physical attributes, but instead by her self-assurance. A confident person is open to learning, because she knows that her confidence allows her to walk through life’s doorways, eager to discover what waits on the other side. She knows that every new unknown is a chance to learn more about herself and unleash her abilities.
Define Yourself: Don’t let others determine how you feel about yourself nor allow society to tell you what you can and cannot do. Tap into your inner voice and write your own rules for your life. If you’re writing your own rules you don’t have to worry about succumbing to someone else’s.
Know Your Strengths and Use Them: Confident people do not concentrate on their weaknesses; they develop and maximize their strengths.The world is not hungry for mediocrity. We really don’t need a bunch of 4s and 5s running around, doing an average job in life. This world needs 10s. You can be a 10 at something, but your problem might be that you often work so hard on trying to overcome our weakness that you never develop your strengths.
Always Dress the Part: So you just don’t feel like putting a 100% into your appearance? I completely understand. We all have those days when we want to just roll out of bed and head straight to work,but remember confidence is never tacky. I would love to believe that people don’t care about your outer appearance,reality is people judge you based on what you’re wearing. So always ask yourself ‘what message am I trying to convey with my attire?’
Take Risks & Take Action:The only thing that comes to someone who stays in their comfort zone is what they already have. A confident woman wants the most out of life and pushes herself to be the best she can be. The only way to do this is to step out of your comfort zone and into something new.
Confidence allows us to face life with boldness, openness, and honesty.
People with low confidence, on the other hand, are not sure about anything. They are double-minded, indecisive people who constantly get frustrated with life. If they do make a decision, they are tormented by self-doubt. They second-guess (and third- and fourth-guess) themselves. As a result, they don’t live boldly. They live little, narrow lives, and they miss out on the big, rewarding lives God wants them to enjoy.
God requires us to approach Him in faith-the deeply held confidence that God is trustworthy and will always make good on His promises.Too many people cower at the mention of God’s name, because they are afraid He is sitting up in heaven, just waiting for them to slip up so that He can punish them. I’m not saying that we never have to face consequences for our actions, but God doesn’t delight in punishing us. Instead, He wants to bless us and prosper us. He is merciful and if we are able to receive His mercy.
When we have confidence in God and His love and kindness, we can progress to living confidently and enjoying the life He wants for us. Confidence in God, not in ourselves. Usually, when people think of confidence, they think of self-confidence.
I am confident in my leader, God, and the gifts, talents, and knowledge He has placed in me. I know that without Him I am nothing (John 15:5), but with Him, I can be a champion, because He brings out the best in me.
Fear is a dangerous virus, because a fearful person has no confidence and can never reach her potential in life. She won’t step out of her comfort zone to do anything-especially something new or different. Fear is a cruel ruler, and its subjects live in constant torment.
Courage is not the absence of fear; it is action in the presence of fear. Bold people do what they know they should do-not what they feel like doing.
A confident person feels safe. She believes she is loved, valuable, cared for, and safe in God’s will for her. When we feel safe and secure, it’s easy to step out and try new things
Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
It’s in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
‘Cause I’m a woman
