There are times when a person thinks himself to be too small for a job or a goal to achieve. But, he does not understand that no one can stop him from achieving his goals if he is self confident. The true friend that will surely lead you ahead in life is nothing other than self-confidence. This is a quality that can help anyone and everyone lead a successful life, no matter in which profession he belongs to. A work done with self-confidence always yields the best result, leading the person climb a step ahead towards success.
What is self-confidence?
Self-confidence is nothing but inner faith. This faith is crucial to face various obstacles in life and overcome them eventually. A self confident person has the faith in his abilities and that he has the capabilities to do what he wants. As the words of the great philosopher, Swami Vivekananda, goes, “He is an atheist who does not believe in himself”. According to his teachings, he who has no faith in God is an atheist, according to old religions. But, the modern religions describe a person to be an atheist if he does not believe in himself.
Self-confidence brings out the real person of a human being and provides him the inner strength to overcome all his fears and failures and move ahead with the hope that he has the abilities to achieve career success and peace of mind. On the other hand, lack of self-confidence can make you feel inadequate and force you stay on the sidelines.
The “Don’t Care” Attitude
A person taken over by low self-confidence might lose all his interest in being alive and somehow wants to end his sufferings. If you fit in this group, it is very important for you to understand that it is just a matter of time and you can restore back your self-confidence and thus the reason to live. Try to convince yourself about your abilities of doing something good and try to be optimistic.
Another way to restore self-confidence is the “don’t care” attitude or care free attitude. You might have encountered such situations when to taste a little bit of success you had to go to the lengths of learning, but when you followed a careless attitude, you were blessed with success!
In real life there are a set of rules that govern our attitude and builds up our self-confidence accordingly. Everyone is afraid of what others will think of a certain action and being judged and criticized. Every human continuously thinks of the consequences their actions will result into and it is a right thing to do at certain times. But great people have been able to be successful in their lives because of their “Don’t Care” attitude.
This careless attitude helps you cut the pressure of being judged and provides you with enough self-confidence to attain what you have dreamt of for your life. This faith of confidence not only makes you successful in your occupation, it also helps you build a strong relationship with your family and friends that will last forever. This may seem as a demonstration of carelessness to some, but when you run out of confidence, don’t stop yourself from going care free till you regain your self-confidence.
