What is Confidence? – Drilling Down to the Bedrock of the Concept

What is Confidence?

Being more confident can be easier said than done, especially if you don’t really know what confidence is. Most of us know the feeling, but it is hard to explain it - it is not something you see and hold in your hand. Just think about it – you know when you feel a rush of confidence but are you capable of explaining this particular feeling?

Being self-confident will help you be at peace with yourself and feel more comfortable in your skin. It gives you the power to undertake and achieve all the things you previously thought to be impossible, but first, you have to understand what confidence is.

What is Self-Confidence?

Confidence could be characterised as an approach – the approach that you have towards yourself and your actions. If you are certain that you are going to be able to handle a situation you are going to be confident about it.

Confidence is about believing in your own powers and resources, instead of being afraid and uncertain. It is about realising that you are actually equal or even better than the others. Once confident, you will free yourself from the shackles of doubt and self-denial. So it is safe to say that confidence is linked to freedom and happiness.
