There are many instances in life where your confidence is hit hard. Sometimes you overcome life’s hardness, sometimes you get overwhelmed. Sometimes your courage and confidence sees you through, but sometimes your self-confidence gets a beating. In this case you have to regain self confidence as fast as possible.
I had this kind of experience a couple of years ago, when a professional setback got me K.O. and led me almost to depression.
As I stated in previous posts, without self confidence you go nowhere. Can you afford to lose your self confidence when you have a very big problem and find yourself without energy, options and time?
Some time ago, I saw the movie “The Pursuit of Happyness”. I think it’s a true inspiring masterpiece on winning over personal challenges with self-confidence. Today I’d like to share my thoughts on this movie with you.
The pursuit of happyness
The movie is based on the true story of Chris Gardner, a man who was facing poverty and struggling to support his family. He invested heavily in a medical device that didn’t sell well and lost his money. Due to serious money difficulties, his wife left him and he lost his house.
Feeling good is one of the best rewards for our soul and our mind. And it often comes from doing something good, especially if you are proud of it. Easy random acts of kindness are a way of doing this. If you haven’t heard of the idea behind it, it’s all about doing something for someone else without expecting anything in return.
Hello everyone! Sometimes I share here my experience about well-established confidence experts, like for example I did with Russ Harris and his book on the four self-confidence traps. Today I want to point to a very special self-help guru, James Clear. He runs a high traffic self-development blog that gets over 1 million visits per month at jamesclear.com.
What’s special in James? His articles have a focus on habit and behavior change with scientific evidence and I like him so much because of this scientific “twist”. If you have read other top personal development gurus, you should have a try with James. You won’t be disappointed.
We have seen that today many people have confidence issues that come from very hard professional and social context. Their lack of confidence in themselves have affected their lives so much that they are unable to grab the opportunities that were presented to them so they could advance in their careers or get ahead in business endeavors or personal life. We know that self confidence can be hard to achieve. Nowadays, hypnosis self confidence can be a great help and a great accelerator for them.
If you are stuck in a rut, your are lacking self confidence
Many people are unaware that they have a problem. They lack confidence in their abilities and capabilities, but they believe that nothing is wrong. Others who won’t believe that it is their lack of confidence that has kept them from getting a wife or a husband. For them, doubting their worth as a person is just common and being human.
The simple point: if you are unsatisfied of your life and feel you can’t change things, then you do have a self-confidence problem.
We have seen previously a lot of tips about self-confidence; many of them are about mindset or taking action; but if you are looking for a self-confidence breakthrough, we have to dig deeper. And this is where emerging popular approaches to self-confidence are going.
Self confidence vs self esteem? Well, many people mistake self-confidence and self-esteem. Well, they are two very different concepts: boiled down, self-confidence is “I can do it”, self-esteem is “I like myself”. While they are not the same thing, they are tightly related.
Self confidence vs self esteem: how they are connected
While self-esteem is a broad concept, self-confidence usually applies to single areas of life. You can be self-confident with math, for example, but feel unsecure about romantic relationships. So, while self-esteem is a global concept, self-confidence will be different in several areas of your life.
