Self-confidence is the ability to believe in yourself and think about yourself in a positive and able manner. Most people wish to have this quality but fail to achieve it. A lot of people we know and interact with are struggling with low self-confidence and want to know how to develop this quality. Confidence is of two types - social and internal confidence.Social Confidence -
This type of confidence is the one people see and recognize. The ability to express yourself and be comfortable around other people - but it is a bit more complex than that. Think of it this way, social confidence is the result of actions you take to develop your confidence during your interaction with other people.Internal Confidence -
This type of confidence is built through self-talk and positive thinking. Accepting your flaws, recognizing your abilities, and acknowledging yourself as the person you are through a lens of complete acceptance is internal confidence. This is the most ultimate form of confidence - seemingly less important than external confidence.
The catch about both of these is that they develop simultaneously with each other. The more comfortable a person gets in social situations, the more internal resolution they gather due to their progress in challenging their comfort zone. Let's discuss the four ways in which you can build your self-confidence up.
Taking a minute to evaluate situations before reacting can greatly boost our confidence and help us avoid looking immature or weak in front of others. Keeping our emotions pre-calculated and thought out can greatly boost our internal self-confidence - which makes us look mature and calculative externally.
