The Seven Habits of Highly Confident People
Geege Schuman stashed this in Life Hacks
1.Accepting personal responsibility
Confident people accept responsibility for their lives, their decisions, and their behaviors. This means they understand that when it’s all said and done, they are responsible for the choices they have made and the life they have led.
Confident people understand that they may not always have control over what happens in their lives but they do have control over their responses. They take responsibility for how they respond to life.
2. Acting in spite of their fears
That’s what courage is. We all have fears—fear of failure, fear of not measuring up, fear of appearing stupid. It’s part of the human condition. We all like to succeed, don’t we? I know I do. And yet, it is the fear of failure that keeps many people from living fully, from claiming their personal power.
You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. (Eleanor Roosevelt)
Confident people are willing to step out of their comfort zone and give their best shot to something new, in spite of their anxieties or fears.
