- Self confidence is a key ingredient in any successful career. In fact, in life in general. It's that belief in self that allows you to envision mastering skills. It allows you to envision accomplishing interesting and challenging goals. When you have strong self confidence, others know it. In fact, they can feel it. And it makes them want to include you more. The reverse is also true. If you lack self confidence, the average person can sense that. And when they do, it makes them question you.
Here's the good news: even though it's true that people are born with different amounts of self confidence, it's also true that you can view confidence as a skill. And experiencing and building this skill is something anyone can do with the right attitude and the right effort. Now to be honest, you don't make significant changes in confidence overnight, so be prepared. This is a long-term process. But with the right effort, you can get there. I'd like to share several specific steps that will help you begin that journey.
