Boost of the Day #87: What is confidence?

Untitled design (1)

I already talked about redefining the word failure in an article about how to overcome failure. Now let’s redefine confidence with this quote. Confidence is not about being popular and loved by everyone. Confidence is about being comfortable enough in your own skin to not worry about being loved by everyone. Confidence is not about people pleasing or trail blazing everyone in your path, it’s about being strong enough to voice your opinion and stick to your values.

If you suffer from low self-esteem, your confidence will be low. You may think you can increase it by people pleasing or shouting over people to be heard. But I suggest you redefine confidence and work on being comfortable with yourself. Respect yourself, stand up for yourself when necessary and walk away from people who bring you down.
