How long are you going to  wait before you demand the  best for yourself.”- Epictetus

We are very good at taking care of other people. When it comes to ourselves, we are terrible at it. We ignore our needs. We have needs. Yes, lots of them.

We have needs. Demand the best for yourself. Take care of your physical health. Take care of your spiritual health. Take care of your financial health. Take care of your social health. Take care of your psychological health. If you are not healthy, you cannot take care of anybody. Take care of yourself so that you can take care of people. For example, if the doctor is unhealthy, patients will get sicker. If you don’t want to get sicker, take care of yourself.

Sometimes to be clueless is the best way to learn. If you call yourself an expert, it means you know everything. It means you have reached the highest levels in your career.

Epictetus said, “If you wish to improve yourself, be content to be seen as ignorant or clueless about somethings.”

No matter where you are in life, success never ends. No matter where you are in your career, learning never stops. If you want to be relevant in today’s changing world, keep learning.

How confident are you? Are you always confident? What does confidence mean to you? Why is it so important?

Is it natural? Is it learned?

Confidence is contagious. So is the lack of confidence.”- Vince Lombardi

Confidence is attractive. A lack of confidence is not attractive. People love to be around confident people. They know it when they see it. According Vince Lombardi, “Confidence is contagious.”

Confidence is catching.

Confidence is infectious.

Confidence is transmissible.

Confidence is spreading.

Where does confidence come from?

Confidence comes from past experiences.People who were supported, celebrated, and appreciated are more confident than those that weren’t celebrated, supported, and appreciated.

Confidence comes from knowing your strengths and weaknesses. You are more confident when you know what you are good at and less confident when you find yourself doing something you are terrible at. You will never do well doing what you are bad at. As a result, your confidence suffers.

Confidence comes from accountability. When you hold yourself accountable for your mess, it gives you the strengths to move on.

Confidence comes from social collaboration. Confidence comes from working with reliable and trusted people. It goes down when you work with incompetent people. It comes from relying on competent people for support. Confidence comes from believing in yourself that you can do anything that you set your mind to do.

Confidence comes from adversity. When you try something and fail the first time, it affects your confidence level. When you do the same thing and fail, it will not shake your confidence level. Confidence comes from practice.

Why is it so important?

Confidence creates success. Confidence makes it easier for people to believe in you. It makes it possible for us to believe in ourselves. It makes it easier to communicate freely with people.

Confidence predicts success or failure. Research has shown that people who lack confidence are less likely to succeed. People who are confident, who believe in themselves, are more likely to succeed in life.Because people believe in them.

Confidence increases your health and well-being. When you are confident, when you believe in yourself, you try more risky things. You go for what you want. You don’t wait for people to tell you what to do. Confidence is healthy. Confidence is attractive. When you believe in yourself, your social connections will become easier. You will overcome your fears. Confidence gives you the ability to defend yourself. It gives you the strengths to stand for what you believe. On the contrary, a lack of confidence leads to poor performance, low-self esteem, and social anxiety or social awkwardness.

How to increase your 

Confidence.

Think positively about yourself. Believe in yourself. Believe that you have what it takes to get things done. If you believe you can, you will.

Do the things you fear. Face your fear and your fear will disappear. Do the things you fear, with intense preparation, the things you fear will go away.

Be a happy. Happy people are not pessimists; they are optimists. They see opportunities in difficult situations. They see it as a path to the next level.

Focus on solutions, not on problems. Confident people focus on solutions. They look for solutions, not problems.

Remove negative thoughts from your head. Positive thoughts increase confidence and energy. Negative thoughts, on the other hand, deplete confidence. Focus on positive thoughts.

Know who you are. It is good to know who you really are. Know your values. Know your strengths and weaknesses.

Always prepare. Preparation is the key to success. Without intentional preparations, you are planning to fail. There is no short cut to the paradise of success. If you want to live in the paradise of success, plan to prepare.
