Self-confidence is understanding that you trust your judgements and ability, and that you value yourself and feel worthy irrespective of the imperfections or what others might believe about you.
It is the first requisite to great under takings.
Self-confidence is linked to almost every element involved in a happy and full filling life.
The more confident you become, the more you will be able to unhook from your thoughts and take actions in line with your values. Low self-esteem leads to worries which in turn gives rise to anxiety and depression, making us withdraw from the world. But by being a confident personality you can choose to break the cycle of overthinking and quieten your inner critic.
Self-confidence enables you to become more resilient and helps you to face or handle challenges and not be crippled by them.
“With realisation of one’s own potential and self confidence in one’s ability, one can build a better world.” - DALAI LAMA.
