Self-confidence is a necessary ingredient for success. Self-confidence sells. It`s something you can sense about a person upon entering a room. It`s evident through body language and speech.It`s not just what you say, but how you say it. Some people think you`re born with it. Others have never experienced it.
Wouldn`t it be great if you could just take a pill and - Wham! you radiated instant self-confidence?Can it be this easy? If it were, our lives wouldn`t be moving between `ifs and buts`. We wouldn`t be vacillating between `Could I?` and `Couldn`t I?` `Should have` and `Shouldn`t have`.
We wouldn`t be pressing our noses to the window, looking in envy at the way some people manage to live their lives so confidently?But hey! Before you pack up, condemned to living a life in `never, never land`, wait for the good news.Self-confidence is not inborn, innate or the domain of the `chosen few.`
It is an attitude. And like other attitudes, it can be cultivated, learnt and built upon. Remember that `Great lives don`t just happen, we make it happen`.
Building confidence is like building a muscle. It doesn`t happen overnight. It takes hard work and sweat. And most important, it takes you and only you to work on it.To be all that you can be, you must stretch, flex, try and go beyond your proven limits. But you need to go about it efficiently. You need to understand your fears and desires. Basically, you need to try. The first step is the toughest. But remember, `Even eagles need to be pushed`.
