Having self-confidence, feeling good in your sneakers is not innate.
Some people naturally have confidence in themselves, while others spend their time underestimating themselves, devaluing themselves and feeling unable to perform tasks that are in their rope. So, they do not dare to take initiatives, assert themselves, show their ambition or embark on new projects.
Often, these people prefer to stay in their comfort zone and their discomfort, do not take risks and have trouble finding their way.
Fortunately, it is possible to develop self-confidence! Indeed, improving your self-esteem and boosting your ego can be learned!
Lack of self-confidence comes from a lack of awareness of oneself and one's abilities. In other words, trusting yourself means having confidence in your skills, your ability to accomplish certain things and your personal resources.
Self-confidence is acquired, built, shaped and maintained on a daily basis and with each action. It is the basis of a fulfilled life, happy and rich relationships, success in projects, surpassing oneself and audacity to undertake … In short, self-confidence is the greatest ally to find your way and realize your dreams.
