snowWhat is self-confidence? It is the certainty you have that comes from believing in yourself, an assurance that comes from knowing that you are unique and special.

You are as amazing as you let yourself be. Let me repeat that. You are as amazing as you let yourself be. – Elizabeth Alraune

Having a low opinion of yourself is not “modesty”. It’s self-destruction. Holding your uniqueness in high regard is not “egotism”. It’s a necessary precondition to happiness and success. – Bobbe Sommer

Self confidence shows in your countenance and in your attitude, do note that self-confidence is not pride, it is the humility that comes from a person who knows they have the option to be proud but choose humility instead. Confidence is an attractive force field around you that attracts others to you, while pride is a barrier that repels others. Confidence does not need much talking as it shows in the way you carry yourself, your perception, your attitude and the way you relate with people and respond to life generally.
The person who argues that they have confidence most likely does not have. This confidence does not come when you have got material resources, it comes with believing in and knowing the real you and how awesome you are.

You are wonderful. Valuable. Worthwhile. Lovable. Not because others think so. Self worth comes from only one place: self. – Karen Salmansohn

This is one of the attributes that attract others to you, confidence is indeed a strong attractive quality, it is being happy with you and it reflects in your smile and the warmth you carry with you that makes others want to be a part of your life.

To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself. – Thich Nhat Hanh

Of course it is great to take care of your outward appearance, which is one way of developing your confidence but remember that there are many who look as good as you can imagine but there is nothing that attracts others to them, on the other hand, there are those who look as good as you can imagine but they still lack a good self-esteem and confidence, so it is safe to say that confidence comes from the real you, knowing, liking you and being happy with you, when you develop this confidence, it will show in the way you wear your clothes and take care of your outward appearance, confidence makes you good-looking, gorgeous and beautiful

Whatever you are doing, love yourself for doing it. Whatever you are feeling, love yourself for feeling it. – Thaddeus Golas
