The Power of Confidence

You can have all the education and the best experience in the world and lack the confidence you need for ultimate success. Confidence is a catalyst which can make a real difference in ‌your life and propel you to a greatness you wouldn’t have without it.

With confidence, you can turn the impossible into the possible—create success where others might give up. While you can gain confidence from education and experience, the confidence must come from inside and you must project it in a way that others find inspiring.

Confidence provides the power you need to step into unknown situations—unafraid and determined to succeed. Leaving behind the secure and the known in your life (aka your comfort zone) may take incredible confidence. Without it, you may become stuck in a milk-toast type of life and never get out of a rut or a career that’s going nowhere.

If you do lack confidence, it may not be obvious to you until you get real with yourself. If you procrastinate or feel overwhelmed much of the time, it may be very difficult to turn the tides unless you ‌address your confidence issues. It’s difficult for you to take action to get out of ruts and bad situations because you feel you can’t do it right or you need to learn more.

Confidence can also help your decision-making skills. You may be hesitant to make decisions about even the smallest of issues because you lack confidence in your own abilities to succeed. You may become paralyzed with indecision and become isolated and withdrawn. Second-guessing yourself only makes it worse.

Sometimes you just need to behave as if you’re confident and use that power to take action rather than simply waiting for something to happen that cements an idea or solves a problem. At least be confident in your determination to work on your goals. That determination will spur you on to take the action(s) you need to succeed.

Soon, confidence can become a habit in your life—a good habit that you’ll welcome and want to cultivate. That ingrained habit will help you leave your comfort zone and take chances. Even if you fail, you’ll learn from the mistakes you make and have the resolve to try the next idea or level of success.

Confidence provides the power you need to commit and work toward goals and know that your efforts are going to succeed in the long run. Not only does that increase your chances of succeeding, it also creates a sense of satisfaction in your mind.

    A bit about me. I was born and raised in rural North Carolina, and currently call Virginia home. My passion for writing was awakened while attending Guilford College (Greensboro, NC). In 2021, I published my first book 'My Self-Care Plan: 12 Monthly Strategies That Will Transform Your Life'. It inspires readers to make self-care a priority during the next 12 months so that they can live their best life possible. The spring of 2022 saw the release of 'Ready. Set. Fly!' my debut children’s book that encourages self-belief and perseverance.
