How confident are you & is it important anyway?

I heard someone say that confidence is just a feeling. Whilst it's true that we do attribute confidence to feeling, it's so much more than that.

There's plenty of hacks you can do to boost confidence as a feeling but more often than not it's only temporary. Great, if that's what you need in the moment but if it's in the moment, it's more likely to be courage.

True confidence is a certainty or belief & that generally only comes through the mastery, the practice, the consistency. Once you have that, the feeling comes anyway & stays.

Examples: public speaking, new job, parenting, learning a new skill.

Think about it; what makes you confident in some areas of your life but not in others? Isn't it the knowledge and/or experience that you gained?

So, my advice to you if you want true & lasting confidence in something, is to practice, practice, practice, learn & do. Gain experience in whatever is.

The more you do something, the more confidence you gain, not just as a feeling but the absolute certainty in your ability or belief.

We make choices & live in accordance with what we truly believe so yes, I think confidence is important in terms of belief & with right thinking, right feeling will follow anyway.
