Confidence! What really is it about confidence. We all want to depict confidence by our style of dressing, by what we say, by how we defend our point and how people see us. Is that really what depicting confidence is about? I often wonder.
I see different levels of confidence and the irony of the concept makes apparent what confidence may really be about. Confidence first starts with the orientation you teach to yourself and the ones you accept to be a part of your belief system. So as much as confidence has a standard accepted definition that we try to portray, Confidence itself comes as a relative concept. Relative to who is projecting the concept— confidence.
Confidence is a thing of the mind, which feeds the brain on how to act, respond to conversations, voluntary and involuntary actions. Little Wonder why a smart young Lad would stare at the sky and ask a beautiful young chick ‘what kind of star she likes’. At that point in time because he’s overwhelmed about the lady his mind feeds his brain a great shot of adrenaline which leads to an imbalance proportion of his feelings all together. His confidence has been lowered unconsciously by him by the thought and sight of the beauty.
With this understanding we can establish the fact that the Confidence of an individual lies solely on what the mind feeds the brain. The Mind? A perception, Conception of an individual thoughts based on observations, genetic traits, upbringing, the environment factor. The Mind makes up the belief system.Your Confidence reflects your mind and your mind feeds on what you have chosen to accept and in turn is characterized by your brain.Ever wondered why on some occasions you seem to be very bold and in some other instances your boldness vanishes into thin air and you wonder where it is gone??? Well, that’s a typical example of how you could feed your mind with doubt and it’s projected in your confidence level.
What then is actually about Confidence, Confidence is not exactly about what you wear, how you talk etc., Confidence is your mind! Confidence is Self Belief and Self Appreciation. Confidence is about being you in all you do, that for sure sets you apart from others. Confidence is trusting in your capabilities and your non-capabilities believing you can do anything you set to achieve regardless of the varying circumstances. Except of course your ‘Mind’ is
not in it….
