What the most confident people – NEVER DO


Dr. Barbara Markaway is the author of this article. Her newest book is The Self-Confidence Workbook: A Guide for Overcoming Self-Doubt and Increasing Self-Esteem.

The article identifies poor habits and thought patterns that hold people back – e.g., believe they are worse than others, hesitate too much instead of taking action, confuse arrogance with confidence, fear failure and feedback.

How to improve self confidence

Self-confident people know what they value and what they want. They share common habits and thought patterns that help them achieve their goals. Here are 13 things self-confident people don’t do, so you can be one of them.

1. They don’t believe they are worth less than others.

One of the fundamental beliefs underlying confidence is, “My worth as a person is equal to everyone else’s.” That doesn’t mean you don’t have to work for what you want, and it certainly doesn’t mean that life divides up its rewards evenly. But it does mean you have the same right as anyone else to stand up for yourself, pursue your dreams, enjoy your life, and make a difference in the way that’s most meaningful to you.

2. They don’t fear self-doubt.

Confident people realize that not all self-doubt is a bad thing. Sometimes fear is a signal that you haven’t prepared enough for the big presentation, the recital, or the interview. Practicing what you plan to say and do will give your mind something to fall back on when the pressure is high. The voice of self-doubt may also be saying you need to get more information, move in a different direction, or take a break.
