In recent times, the world has been evolving from the notion of qualifications to the presentation. The norms are changing and people who have the highest degrees aren’t the only one at the top anymore. The pedestal now accommodates people with extra value and confidence to stand with it.
Clement Stone once said “The world is full of dreamers. There aren’t enough who will move ahead and take concrete steps to actualize their vision.” Hence, the best gift to give yourself is to build yourself to not just believe also to take action.
Many a time thinks confident people are arrogant but in the real sense; they are just being bold and with the ability to stand for and sell themselves to people in a commanding way.
The art of being confident and sharp goes a long way to determining how far you will be able to convince people of your abilities. You might possess a bulk of talent and skills, but the moment you can’t stand to present it in a convincing and real manner; you tend to lose their trust and believe and some cloud of doubt hovers around your ability.
Also, we have witnessed shows and events that produce a lot of talents competing on the high stage. We will notice that the winner most times edge others out by not only possessing the required skill sets for all – as its possible, they are on par. But, the ability to shine brighter, speak more fluent, talk with boldness and cheer would make him/her preferred to others.
Looking at some more critical issues, we would highlight more reasons why building self-confidence could be very important in our personal lives as well as in our professional lives.
Being sharp and confident makes you certain about your abilities. And thus, leads you to make the right decisions. The power of self-belief and the drive to prove it puts you on the path of right decisions. Every one of your moves is directed by goals and passion. You would start to see farther than others, makes it possible for you to forecast and predict outcomes.
It is, therefore, logical to say that people would easily be convinced and impressed by you for your ability to potentially make right decisions ahead of time.
- Productivity accompanies confidence
If not for anything, building confidence and sharpness becomes mandatory in the quest to improving ones’ productivity. Productivity is simply a factor of increased output and logically has a connection with having self-confidence.
When you’re confident, the drive to start things and stretch your limits comes with it. You become certain of your approaches, steps, and method of execution. You get to take charge and monitor your progress judiciously. Thus, getting more results wouldn’t be far-fetched from these inputs.
The notion of being productive is a great virtue on needs to win over people. They would easily want to relate and work with you for they know their partnership with you will most likely yield significant results.
- Confidence gives you a leader and a mentor presence
Many people are always in awe of how some people have managed to maintain some certain standards and stayed on top. They see them as leaders and mentors for their self-worth and contributions in the society.
Being a leader can be likened to being confident and responsible. You’re most likely expected to be responsible for assigned duties and execute them with certainty. As such, you get to be regarded and accepted as a leader.
So, a less confident person would always find it hard to thrive as a leader not to talk of being seen as a mentor.
In summary, confidence and sharpness are a must build art for self-propulsion.
It makes you believe in winning, overcome fear and pessimism. You tend to stand up for action, set the bar high and go on to achieve things. It gives you more attractiveness than what physical attractive attributes would give you.
Build your confidence, maintain sharpness and watch yourself grow in limitless ways!
