For argument’s sake, let’s say you have a clear idea of what self confidence is, and you appreciate that you already have everything it takes to become more self confident.
The next question is: why is it important to have self confidence? And why is it worth your time, effort, and energy to develop greater confidence in yourself?
One of the most important things for you to understand about self confidence is that it is a great and useful thing to have, but not the 'right' thing to have. Indeed, just like it's neither right nor wrong for a glass to be full of water or for a glass to be empty, it's neither right nor wrong to be full of self confidence or to lack self confidence.
Rather, it's a question of how do you want to be and why.
This means that if you currently have low self confidence (or even no self confidence at all), this is a completely valid and acceptable way of being, so don't spend even a second feeling bad about it.
Instead, appreciate this: your life improves in every way the more self confident you become. So that's why it's worth your time, effort, and energy to do so.
You've already seen the big picture view of the two primary benefits of confidence: it naturally makes you happier and helps you be more successful.
However, you can dig down deeper to identify more specific benefits that are also worth appreciating.
With this in mind, here are 11 benefits of becoming a more self confident person:
It is important to appreciate that one of the most important benefits of being more self confident is that it naturally helps you become stronger and stronger over time, with everything you encounter and experience, rather than weaker and weaker.
Consider what happens when you have low self confidence, and you feel like you can't possibly accept or handle someone rejecting you in any way.
With this scenario, not only are you terrifed of putting yourself out there, and 'risking' rejection, but if you are rejected, it naturally feels like a nightmare to you, and makes you even more frightened of risking rejection in the future.
In this way, low self confidence (or a lack of self confidence) naturally makes you weaker and weaker over time.
Inversely, if you have high self confidence, you have no doubt that you can easily accept and handle someone rejecting you, and as a result, you're not afraid or anxious of putting yourself in situations where you might be rejected. And, if you are rejected, you see how easily you can, indeed, handle it, and emerge stronger than ever with such proof of how strong and capable you are.
In this way, high self confidence naturally makes you stronger and stronger over time.
When you consider all this, it's a no-brainer: not only is it worth your time and effort to become a more self confident person, but it's also worth your time to develop a high degree of self confidence that will always benefit you in life, and make your life easier and more rewarding in every way.
The most important question, right now, is this: do you want to increase your self confidence and become a more self confident person?
This is because the most important factor for becoming more self confident is to simply want to develop greater confidence in yourself, and to be decisive about taking action to do so, regardless of whether anyone else wants you to become more self confident or not.
With this clarity of mind, you are already well on your way to developing greater confidence in yourelf and your abilities.
If you're thinking, 'I want to be confident, but I don't know how', that's fine.
Provided you have already learned what self confidence is, all this means is that your next step is to learn more about how to start developing it in a simple, easy way.
