A Confidence Man
Confidence can be described as a belief in one’s ability to succeed. It is also generally described as a state of being certain either that a chosen course of action is the best or most effective, or that a hypothesis, or prediction is correct. Self-confidence and how we portray it, is really about balance. At one end of the scale, we have people who may be over-confident or cocky, and at the other we have people with really low self-belief. Neither are ideal, as if you are under-confident, you’ll avoid taking risks and stretching yourself, or you might not even try at all to push yourself. Whereas if you’re over-confident, you may take on too much risk, stretch yourself beyond your capabilities, and crash out. There is also another little discussed course that we’ve seen and it’s when people are optimistic, up to the point that they don’t try hard enough to truly succeed and life may pass them by.
Your Inner Monologue
We all see self-confident people have qualities that everyone admires and wants for themselves, but if you don’t believe in yourself, how do you expect anybody else to. Low self-confidence can be self-destructive, and it often manifests itself as negativity and this is where we can assist you, because becoming more confident is readily achievable. Your level of self-confidence can show in many ways: your behavior, your body language, how you speak, what you say, and so on. Confidence also interlinks with the idea of self-esteem, which is a more general sense that we can cope with what’s going on in our lives.
Don’t forget we all have fears and inner doubts at times, it’s a natural thing and doubly difficult if you don’t necessarily ‘fit in’.

If you notice, a person in authority often speaks slowly, because it shows confidence. A person who feels that he/she isn’t worth listening tends to speak quicker, because they would rather not see others wait on something they may feel is not worthy of listening to. Even if you don’t feel a confident speaker, just try talking a little slower and a few times to people you meet and if you persist it will help, make you feel more confident and in turn, you will be more self-assured.
