Confidence is Important in Life and Success
Winners have confidence. They know they won't always win. They realize risk is part of the equation. And they realize that we are all human, all equal and someone has to take the lead - it might as well be them.
It's up to you to be confident or not, because confidence cannot be instilled by others. Confidence is something you create within yourself by believing in who you are.
The people who put on a show are insecure. You know these people – if you look at their social media accounts or speak with them it looks and sounds like their lives are perfect – all sunshine and rainbows. But no one's life is perfect, even those with confidence or a level of success. Confident people don't curate a life, they live it.
Most people who are successful play it down. They don't need to talk about themselves and their "accomplishments" to make themselves feel better. They can be themselves because they are comfortable in their own skin.
There is a reason the person this post reminds you of is successful. They believe in themselves. Most of these people also know connections and relationships are everything. These are the people who are fun to hang out with because they are not trying to tell you how great they are, even though they know.
If this is you, keep on doing what you are doing. If it is not, what are you going to do about it?
