In part 1 of this series, we looked at 5 ways you can begin improving your confidence (also listed at the bottom of this read).
This week our focus will shift to examine a key characteristic of confidence - Confidence is developed, not imagined.
We often wish we had more confidence. We can imagine what it would look like to walk into a room, with our head lifted high. And maybe in the moments where our favorite song plays, or we obtain a compliment from someone well esteemed, we can actually feel a sort of aura of confidence come over us. And as genuine as the thought or feeling of it might be, it is short lived, because true confidence was lacking.
Confidence is not an outfit that can be worn or a switch that can be turned on and off. True confidence is developed over time, via methods like the 5 listed below.
True confidence doesn't vanish as quickly as our feelings. It is an engraved characteristic of our disposition that remains with us as long as we continue to strive towards its development.
Similar to muscles, confidence takes time to build, and doesn't go away over night, but just like if our muscles are not exercised and eventually diminish, confidence will also diminish if not exercised.
