Everyone desires to be confident, yet very few have been able to develop it in all facets of their life.
A lack of self-confidence can ultimately become the most significant hindrance to finding happiness, success, and fulfillment.
Unfortunately, too many people often are unable to see the effects low self-confidence has on their lives, blaming their failures on outside factors instead. They blame a tough dating scene for not finding the right partner.
They are desperate to find a better job but don’t know where to start because the job market is so competitive. They wish they could follow their dreams but can’t afford to fail.
On the surface, these kinds of excuses seem like they are legitimate outside barriers, keeping us from finding true happiness.
However, when further examined, the justifications are all rooted in a lack of self-confidence. Past experiences have helped to develop your current mindset, and the past unknowingly plagues us as we grow into adults.
As adults, we often waste a ton of energy attempting to appear confident rather than developing real confidence. The importance society puts on outside appearances only reinforces the pressure to show false confidence.
