To develop unstoppable confidence first of all we have to understand it's opposite emotion, that is fear. It will be much easier to develop confidence once you understand fear. So what is fear?

We have experienced fear many times, we become the victim of fear but have you ever seen fear in action? Next time when you feel fearful just close your eyes and look inside. See what is fear and how it works.

You will see, fear is just a thought and imagination. You imagine and entertain fearful thoughts. And you get hypnotized by your own mind. Fear is like a dreamy state. It is absence of alertness. When you are alert there is no fear.

Fear is never in the active present. It is always about past or future. But when you are alert, you are in the present. When you are in the present moment and don't move into the past or future then there is no fear.

When there is no fear, anxiety or panic mind becomes silent. Confidence means you don't use your brain unconsciously to create fear.
