Self confidence is about believing in yourself and having trust in yourself. If a person has a true belief in himself/herself then he/she can achieve anything they want in their life. This post is just a motivational speech on self confidence.
Confidence is not walking in a room and thinking no one is better than you. Confidence is you don’t have to compare yourself with anyone.
What is Self Confidence?
Self-confidence is to trust your abilities. Believe in yourself with clarity. It is how you feel about yourself. It depends on what you think about yourself from within.
Difference between Confidence and Over-Confidence
Confidence is you are the best version of yourself and overconfidence is you are the best from the whole world.
You must have heard that self-confidence is believing in yourself. It is not just believing in yourself only but also it comes from believing with clarity. Clarity means The work you have to do, should be very clear to your mind.
If you believe without clarity, it is overconfidence, not confidence. For example:-
If you are a salesman and you have the confidence that you can sell the product, without knowing whether that product is worth selling or not. That is overconfidence. You will get a failure, not a success.
But if you know about your product and you know that your product is amazing, the confidence that you have to sell that product will be the real self confidence.
When People Lose their Self Confidence?
Loss of self confidence occurs when the chemicals present inside your mind become imbalanced. Due to chemical imbalance, the level of endorphins decreases and the person starts feeling sad or low, the person starts having self-doubts, negative thoughts start increasing, because of increase in negative thoughts, a person starts seeing the negative aspects of everything.
Never doubt yourself, self doubt kills your confidence. And because of all this, the person starts losing self confidence.
Now, Why do Chemical Imbalances Occur?
Try to understand what is the root cause of chemical imbalance:
We used to be always happy when we were kids. There was a lot of confidence in us. We felt that we have the ability to do anything. But as we grow up, we have to face the pressure of education, career, job, life.
Your parents and teachers start giving you the pressure of study and career since your childhood. And some people are not able to handle the pressure.
They’re unable to accept the change and do not come out of their comfort zone. They start comparing themselves with others and they consider themselves inferior to others. They start taking other’s opinions about themselves too seriously.
These all affect the person’s mind and then chemical imbalance occurs.
The level of endorphins in the brain decreases. Dopamine chemicals decrease which is responsible for happiness. And that’s why the person loses self-confidence.
