Did you always know how to walk? were you confident? or you just started moving without self-doubts. If the answer is second one then what has changed now, isn’t our doubts take a better toll on us.

Where does this Confidence comes from ?

meaning of life

So as we understood that confidence is a feeling in our body but where does it come from.

It is generated from your mind when you remove self-doubts and limiting beliefs from yourself. Belief has no connection to reality that’s why it is called a belief not a fact.

You have made a belief based on other people’s opinions and those people are mostly your friends and families.

And that belief kept you poking whenever you try to start something new.

What is Belief and how to break it?

Everyone is walking with some kind of belief that is based on opinion either your own or other people of friends and family.

So it is imperative to ask what is belief, how it is made, and how it impacts our life.

1 ) Belief meaning and how it is made

Before the 19th century, everybody believed that the earth is flat. Some people still follow that but that’s a different story, the truth is the earth is round but people assumed on the basis of their opinion that the earth is flat.

So Belief is making an opinion either your own or someone else and sticking with it without questioning is it really true or not?

2 ) Impact on our life

The belief of whether the earth is flat or round does not affect our lives that much.

But some beliefs like ” I am not good enough “,” I am a failure “,” I have no talent “, can have a very major impact on people’s self-esteem and their life at work or normal life.

80-90 % of time belief are just opinions based on unfact , if there is a word exist like unfact.

Real Practical Methods That Can Improve Confidence

Okay so we have understood the root cause and methods to deal with it, let’s see now how to improve the symptoms.

Self-confidence comes from within no external motivation and logical quotes work for a long time, so we are going to work on internal factors that will help us in overcoming lack of confidence at work.

Step 1 ) Understanding where you lack confidence in?

The foremost important thing to know is in what things we lack confidence in?

It can be interviews,  public speaking, relationship, office anything.

But to some this up it all comes down to a lack of something feeling in us which may be a belief or lack of knowledge.

For example, there is a test tomorrow and you haven’t studied for it and your brain is constantly telling you to study otherwise you will fail. This is actually a good thing, otherwise, you will go without studying for the test.

How this will help me ?

Understanding your reason for lack of confidence will help you to beat it .

If you don’t know the enemy how can ou ever conquer it.

Sometimes the lack of confidence which we we discuss next.

Step 2 ) Lack of confidence is a good thing

Dont jump to conclusions please read the full paragraph first.

Suppose you have to present an important ppt in your office that you haven’t prepared thoroughly , if you go and present with confidence and you don’t know a thing about it and someone asked a question, a disaster right.

So lack of confidence is a good thing, your mind is saying to improve yourself that you are lacking.

But it is not good for me

Now comes the twisting part, the same mind that is helping you in one situation is causing you problems in another situation. It is saying you lack something that you don’t have the power over.

I myself have suffered from the self-esteem problem of height, face, and always a feeling that I am not good enough.

In this area where i don’t have control, i learn to let it go and start focusing on things that I can improve

How this will help me ?

Focusing your mind on things you can improve will enhance your self-esteem and keep your mind away from things that are out of your hands.

That will bring the piece to your mind.

Step 3 ) Do you need to be confident to take action?

If you need the confidence to take action in all your life then you couldn’t have learned to speak, learn driving etc. By action you get confident and those who are always confident are very dangerous to society.

Take an unskillful confident surgeon for an example do you want that confidence? no right. if you feel like you are lacking something which is in your power then go for it does not matter what you are feeling you will slowly get the hang of it just like when you were leaning driving.

How this will help me ?

You will get out from the rut of never starting the things you have always wanted to do due to lack of confidence .


“Self-confidence comes from within no motivation and quotes can help you, start practising  techniques as you have read in blogs and be patient roots of beliefs and doubt will take time to weaken”

Be patient , keep learning and improving things that you can.
