How important is confidence?
It can change your life. I tell that to everyone. Confidence is so important that it can change the course of your life in ways you never imagined. Imagine that you’re a guy trying to ask out a girl. The pressure that we feel to approach a woman and ask for her number or ask her out on a date is nerve racking for many men. Thankfully, I don’t have that issue anymore but I remember when I did.
Confidence is Important
Confidence is important for many reasons.
- Confidence gives you courage to act when you’re afraid
- Confidence gives you power
- Confidence gives you certainty
Confidence and Power
Confidence is power. When you have confidence in your abilities it gives you power. If you have job skills that that are in high demand then chances are you command a higher salary. Some of the most highly paid jobs are those that require tremendous skills. These skills are built on years of training, experience and practice. Your confidence in being able to execute those skills makes you competent. The power you gain positions you well above those aren’t as competent as you.
Confidence and Certainty
Confidence gives you certainty that you will be able to perform with a high degree of success. Imagine that you are trying to lift a tremendously heavy weight. The normal untrained person would probably not be able to lift or move the weight. But the trained lifter feels certain that they will be able to lift the weight because of years of training. Those years of training give them the confidence to able to move extremely heavy weights over and over again. Therefore, they feel certain about their ability to perform.
Having confidence is extremely important because it gets you to pursue dreams, to speak to people or approach women. These are just examples of the power that having confidence will do for you. But as I said before, you have to build upon confidence everyday!!!! It’s a daily job.
