Why Developing Self-Confidence Is Important?

Do you ever feel like you lack of self-confidence? It happens all the time to most of us. Worrying too much future but slacking at the same time.

When we look around our peers, it seems like everyone is building billion-dollar businesses, becoming YouTube stars, or making it big on TikTok.

Deep down inside our hearts, most of us also know that it’s all bullshit. Nevertheless at the same time, we see all these people living awesome lives, and we don’t care if it’s real or not.

Whether you want money, fame, travel, or none of that stuff, it doesn’t matter because it always comes down to this: How confident are you?

  • Are you confident enough to say “screw it,” and pursue your dream?
  • Are you confident enough to say “screw all this bullshit, I don’t need it,” and stay grounded?

Now you see? Self-confidence is vital if you want to win at life — no matter what you’re after, a lack of confidence will always hold you back from moving forward. Lack of self-confidence is often associated with:

  • Depression
  • loneliness and feeling left out
  • Lower academic achievement
  • Lower life satisfaction

Building Your Self-Confidence

So you become more self-confident if you become better at what you do. The following process is easy—but completing the steps takes hard work.

It goes like this:

  1. Improve your competencies
  2. Put them into practice
  3. See results
  4. Grow more confident
  5. Repeat

That’s the process.

“That’s great and all, but what if I don’t see results? Plus, I don’t have the time to practice.”

If you want to make excuses, that’s fine. Your future is based on the actions you’ve taken in the past. But this method of building self-confidence is based on real, tangible steps, and not intangible stuff like affirmations. Confidence doesn’t appear magically by itself but develop over time.

You can convince yourself every day that you’re confident, lucky to be alive, or whatever — but if you lack the skills to get things done, you’ll never truly believe in yourself.

Affirmations, positive thinking, goal setting, is all great, but it’s NOTHING without execution. How can you expect to build confidence if you never do anything? It’s impossible.

“What competencies should I improve?”

That depends on what you’re after. As the saying goes, you are what you eat, but there are also some skills that I believe every person can benefit from.

  • Problem-solving — Our current school system dates from the industrial revolution. We’re trained to become cogs in a wheel. We’re not trained to solve problems in complex situation — instead, we do what we are told. School system punish students making mistakes rather than developing them to think out the box. But the world has changed and in the current state, the person with better problem-solving skill will have an upper hand.
  • Emotional intelligence — If you want good relationships, you need emotional intelligence. Research shows that humans are inherently social. Without good relationships, we die. Understanding other people’s emotions and how to respond to them. This is something you can learn.
  • Self-awareness — You can practice self-awareness by continuous self-reflection. Write down your thoughts; try to understand why you do what you do, what you can do better, and what you’re doing well. You know the best version of yourself and what you do best.

Don’t deceive yourself into thinking that your life will be better as long as you wish for it.

Start putting in work and see the results, even if the results turn out to be bad, be mindful that the next time you are not starting from scratch, you are starting with experience.
