Building Self-Confidence

By: Janet Erickson

Few people truly succeed in life. The vast majority of people are withdrawn and timid - they are not able to make many friends. Boys are not able to find dates easily and young ladies fail to impress, all because of their lack of confidence. Are you able to stand a public speaker whose style does not carry conviction? Shy speakers are not able to captivate their audiences. They are unable to be compelling. In short, their lectures don't have the essential pep and feeling to be stimulating and wind up falling flat.

A lack of self-assurance is what keeps most people from being assertive, successful and finally happy in life. However, if you can know that you do not have the confidence you require, you can work on building it up and making your dreams of success a reality.

And whenever you make mistakes, you readily own up to them. Your plans are set with reason, keeping in mind a honest appraisal of your assets, your weaknesses and your skills and talents.
