Confidence is Self Identification
You all must have seen movies like spiderman and batman. All of them are virtual characters, yet ideal. Most of us believe that idealism is quite impossible to achieve, in fact that's one of the reasons quoted to shift far away from it.
I don't want to sound too 'ideal' here by using quotes and dialogues from big people. What I really want to sound is just 'confident' by sharing what I feel. The confidence really doesn't comes by achievement of something like most of the people tend to believe. It's just there, right there within you.
Confidence is actually identification of 'self' in the truest sense. Nothing much is required than this, you don't need to behave like spiderman or talk like some expert. Try to feel right within you, many of you tend to believe that 'I won't be able to do it' or 'it's not doable at all'. These are some statements which most of you often use and most of you believe in them to the core. That's where you make the first two mistakes.
Our brain is logically divided into two parts:
1) Conscious mind
2) Sub-conscious mind
The first one is what we regularly do and do not involves acts of our behaviour. Just on the other hand, our Sub-conscious mind keeps on recording different activities and things going around us, even things we see, listen and speak everyday. Definitely, it records our own statements too when we say - 'this is not doable' or anything negative which displays a lack of confidence. Constant hammering of such statements have a very strong impact on our sub-conscious mind. In the entire history of mankind, you must have seen heroes who have taken one step forward to eradicate some social evils or resolve some common problems. Would you like to know more about 'one step forward'? The step was nothing different than identifying the hidden potential within themselves and just using it to move ahead. I agree that now you would like to know what exactly is the process to identify yourself truly. Let's begin with some basic steps:
1) Keep a smile on your face all time.
2) Speak positive and rather think positive.
3) Appreciate others and offer them your best wishes.
4) Don't run behind fame and publicity. Keep your character just on the ground, just be simple.
5) Wash off your ego and be friendly with everyone possible.
6) Don't let your personal problems affect your other relations, make it sure you always keep things on a different plate.
7) Talk assertively to as many people as you can. Do not forget that even while you talk to a CEO, he's ultimately a human being only with just one nose, two ears and two eyes. Designations do really matter but only when you feel being a normal human being is not a designation.
In my next article, I would like to share with everyone the in-depth process of materializing the above basic steps and using them in your real life.
