Confidence is the Key to Success

Sheetal Pudasaini, XI, P3 Science
Confidence, the first step to success or the ability to succeed, means having belief about
yourself and your abilities, with full of inner strength. It is the path to make our dream come true.
To succeed in life, you need two things: ignorance and confidence. We should have confidence
on soul, self and on our own power and capacity. If we have self-confidence, we have already
won half of the battle. Confidence creates, opportunities for success and with each new success,
another self-confidence block is put into new place. Success builds self-confidence with each
new achievement.
Confidence is a super power; once you start to believe in yourself, magic starts
happening. We should always try to look at ourselves in a different way than we used to. It can
change our life and help our confidence level to rise. See yourself as the self-confident person
you want to be. Before you know it, you will become that person. Success is not easy. We should
put all excuses aside and remember that we are capable. A person who develops self-confidence
is eternally optimistic and has full faith in his abilities. In order to develop self-confidence, one
should start by practicing self-acceptance. This implies that one should notice both situations
increase or decrease one’s self-confidence.
Confidence is your reward for overcoming fear. To build up confidence, we should
gradually face the things that scare us in real life. Gradually, facing the things that scares us
gives traumatic memories and this gives out new responses to anxiety. This helps us to think and
not to worry much in intense situation. Success is a journey not a destination. Only positive
thinking helps to achieve success. Having a bit of positive thinking helps us to realize that we
can achieve things that we never thought possible.

If you have no confidence in self, you are twice defeated in the race of life. It is an
attitude about our skills and abilities. Confident individuals set the bar of imagination and
compassion high and aim high. We should always have greater confidence which makes us more
willing to take smart risks and move outside of our comfort zone. Confidence breeds strength.
Everything we want to do in life is not easy. It should be tough to make at the top. Never focus
upon the weak points, always walk through the strong points ignoring the saying of outer worlds.
We should not be satisfied with the stories of others, how things have gone with others will not
be same in our life.
Self-confident people perceive themselves as capable of achieving those things they set
out to do, and this perception creates reality in their lives. Yes, perception creates reality. We can
become the person we want to be. If we believe it, we can achieve it. Start believing in yourself,
act on that belief and start building self confidence in life. Talk to yourself in an encouraging
way and keep yourself a way from negative thoughts and people. Surround yourself with
positive, confident and successful people. Make this your habit and will help to build up
confidence. Our performance is highly dependable on our thoughts. Whatever we think about
ourselves and a situation has a direct reaction to how we will perform towards it.
In a nutshell, self-confidence is the key to success, but preparation is important key to
self-confidence. Confidence is not ‘They will like me’ confidence is “I’ll be fine if they don’t”.
We should believe in ourselves. Sometimes, it takes thousands of times to win something.
Always be strong, because things will be better after that.
