The Reasons Why Self Confidence is So Important

by Rajesh Gotan

Having self-confidence has an impact on all spheres of our lives – It is a vital and essential part for our success, happiness and mental wellbeing. 

It takes effort to build and maintain it, but it is absolutely worth the effort.

Here are the reasons why self-confidence is so essential and important.

It Impacts Your Self-Worth

It helps you understand yourself with positives and negatives. You have self- acceptance and you establish your self-worth which is a very important part of self-confidence. You are able to recognise that you are valuable and important without being worried about what others say. 

It helps you focus on your abilities and focus on doing what you should be doing.

You will understand that you are not perfect and no and it is ok to make mistakes and learn from them to become a better version of yourself.  

You will be able to express your-self without thinking what others think or say about you.

It Makes You More Attractive with Positive Aura

You will display higher level of confidence in dealing with people and this will make you look attractive to others. You will be relaxed with a positive and outgoing attitude. This will help attract people as they will genuinely like you for you being yourself.

Self Confidence is the key to conquer the world

It Influences Better Decision Making 

With self-confidence, your inner self and intuition will guide you to take best course. 

It is not the case with many people who are not able to make decisions. They are full of self- doubt.  Without decisions, there cannot be any progress. Ones who are not able to decide will likely find it hard to make decisions and are often plagued by self-doubt.

In life, the doubts and uncertainties will surround you, but you will be relaxed and not very anxious as you know that whatever the situation may be, you will be able to overcome it.  You will be able to trust yourself and will not have any self-doubt.

It Gives You Courage

When you have higher level of confidence, you will be comfortable in taking the risks and will not fear making mistakes.  You will not be worried about failing knowing it’s a part and parcel of life and there is no progress without taking risks. You will know that comfort zones are not fertile for growth and you will have courage to come out of them and take new progressive steps.

It Makes You Stick to Your Values

When you have self-confidence, you will have clearly defined values without any ambiguity. No matter what, you will stick to them. You will not be swayed by the opinions of others and will never be in self-doubt. You will be seen as a person of values and gain respect from others – a person of strong values is always noticed and respected.

It Helps in Managing the Relationships Better

A person with low confidence may not feel comfortable in setting the boundaries in a relationship and might be too anxious about hurting someone. This leads to a very unhealthy bond which will be full of anger, self-pity, remorse and resentment due the loss of freedom and identity.

With a strong value system, you will be able to set boundaries in relationships. Neither you allow people to walkover in to your space nor will walk into their space. The relationships that you build will be quite fulfilling with good mutual respect and understanding thereby making you empowered to have a better control of your life.

It Helps in Better Communication

If you doubt yourself, it will be hard to communicate what is in your mind. It will be very hard for you to be firm in communication as you are not able to trust your thoughts.

With self-confidence, the clarity and control over your thoughts makes you communicate with confidence, honesty and assertiveness thereby having more positive interactions with others.

It Helps in Meeting the Goals

If you have low confidence, you will be very less motivated to work on your milestones and will be prone to negative thoughts overtaking you.

When you possess high level of confidence, you will feel more motivated as you have confidence in your strengths and abilities which will not let you deter by your own thoughts and feelings.

It Helps in Building Good Self Image

As you view yourself positively, you will carry a positive image of yourself. You will be less conscious and stress free. You will find yourself comfortable with yourself with a good relationship with self. A good self-image is highly important for your mental and emotional wellbeing. With a positive self- image, you will always be best of yourself.

Summing Up

You should fall in love with yourself before falling in love with someone else!

Loving yourself is about accepting the way you are.

Self-love is the first step towards becoming Self-confident which is very essential for your mental and physical wellbeing.

Self-confidence is one of the biggest and everlasting asset. So never hold yourself from building it – it has more worth than you may think!
