    Confidence and self confidence

    Confidence is very necessary for every individual. But some do have confidence over to the limit. We can term this as over confidence. Many feel that they are confident and become over confident and loose in many aspects. Confidence is necessary but over confidence ruins us many times.

    What do you think of over confidence. Is it healthy to have it?

    Confidence is an essential thing for the pesonalities. Without confidence one cannot achieve any goals. But some times it is true people will fall in mistake by developing over confidence.

    Generally over confidence will be developed due to the lack of kwowledge on self. They do not assess them selves accurately and based on assumptions they take decisions which turns as over confidence.

    Having knowledge on self is the only solution for this.

    Confidence is related to have a faith in particular thing,event or a sequence of happenings.
    Whereas,self confidence is bound to one's faith on oneself.So it is very much necessary to have self confidence as it makes you stand apart from the crowd.Also there must be confidence for the positive events.

    Down-to-Earth Attitude
    Commonsense
    Conscience
    Practicality
    Flexibility
    will make you CONFIDENT!
    Missing any of the five above leads to Over Confidence.. My Opinion!!

    Confidence in ones own self is very essential without which one cannot achieve anything in life. Along with self confidence one essentially should have faith in God. These two are very important for ones success.

    hi friends,

    self respect is setting a set of rules 4 yourself n then following them. and that you do not give rights to all the people around to use you or degrades you.

    Over confidence on the other hand is an extreme of self respect. ego is a latanin word meaning "i"..the person who only sees talks dreams about "i" and only "i" and that whatever i say i correct .such egocentric people are manics .


    self respect in all forms to any sector of the society is beneficial.
    ego in any form ...to any sector of the society is not beneficial .

    self respect would also bring pleasure
    ego will bring nothing but pessimism

    Regards

    confidence is general . self confidence is related to a specific person.

    If india wins the game you have confidence that india will win. but you are not a player thats confidence.
    but a player in indian cricket team has self confidence that india will win the match.

    hi friends

    its really very good question.
    confidence and self confidence are equivelent but not equal.
    confidence comes when an individual or an organisation is ready with all preparation for the task or procedings.

    but self confidence stays inside an individual, which drives the individual to do something or to proceed in the way to success for the achievement of some thing or goal.

    confidence is essential for success. Over-confidence & under confidence will create problems. Over-confidence may lead to failures or surprises & bad performance.

    confidence and self confidence are quite same but there are some differences.
    here i would like to share something important about the self confidence. Self-confidence is extremely important in almost every aspect of our lives, yet so many people struggle to find it. Sadly, this can be a vicious circle: People who lack self-confidence can find it difficult to become successful.

    After all, most people are reluctant to back a project that's being pitched by someone who was nervous, fumbling and overly apologetic.

    On the other hand, you might be persuaded by someone who spoke clearly, who held his or her head high, who answered questions assuredly, and who readily admitted when he/she did not know something.

    Self-confident people inspire confidence in others: Their audience, their peers, their bosses, their customers, and their friends. Gaining the confidence of others is one of the key ways in which a self-confident person finds success.

    The good news is that self-confidence really can be learned and built on. And, whether you’re working on your own self-confidence or building the confidence of people around you, it’s well-worth the effort! All other things being equal, self-confidence is often the single ingredient that distinguishes a successful person from someone less successful.

    having self confidence leads towards the success !!!
    Did you know that teens spend an average of 6.5 hours a day consuming some kind of media? And these days, with TV shows, movies, magazines, and basically everything we look at saturated with images of impossibly gorgeous girls and ridiculously buff guys, it can be no mean feat to develop a positive and realistic self-image.

    But before you can even think about starting to get to know someone else, doesn't it make sense to get to know yourself? Having self confidence is the first step in helping to make your future relationships healthy and long-lasting. This section offers some important ideas for getting (and keeping!) your confidence up.

    Associate with positive, supportive people. If your friends are constantly down on themselves (or you), how can you keep a good attitude?
    Stop comparing yourself to others. Yeah, she might have a gorgeous new car and he might be getting straight A's, but do you know what's going on behind the scenes in their lives? You rarely know the full story about someone else, so don't assume that you're worse off, unluckier, less gifted than they are.
    Stop putting yourself down. Most people say things to themselves that they would NEVER let a stranger (or even a close friend) say to them. You should be your biggest advocate, not your biggest critic.
    One of the most important aspects of your personality - and one that impacts how self confident you are - is your maturity level. Maturity inspires patience, tolerance, and a genuine willingness to work out problems that might develop - key ingredients to a successful and healthy relationship. People at different levels of maturity with a variety of personalities find themselves attracted to different types of people. Being aware of your maturity level can be a huge help with developing a healthy relationship.

    here there is an interesting news that Karate and other types of exercises will help in increasing the self confidence. Karate is not just about self-defence. Today, it is a sport that helps one develop confidence, improves personal health and fitness levels and also teaches how to protect oneself against dangers.

    The increasing popularity of karate has resulted in the emergence of many centres that teach this particular form of martial arts.

    There are instructors with more than three decades of experience at some of these centres. Dubai Karate Centre, which is one of the most popular centres in the UAE, has close to 500 members - both men and women - honing their skills in the sport.

    useful tips for girls for increasing their self confidence. It is important to promote girls with girls self confidence since they are still in the age of children. This article will review some of useful ways to create girls self confidence.

    We can start by providing great education videos and television program for girls to watch while they can get something out of it. Educational program can provide great value in girls life such as beauty, academic which eventually will improve girls self confidence. Nowadays, television program came with many kinds of products advertising to the viewers, some of the advertisement can bring negative impact for girls self confidence. Such as cosmetic and perfume products advertisement can bring messages to girls that make up will be nice and bring them happiness but girls didn’t realize that buying too much of cosmetic products spend out of their savings and they will facing financial problems in the future. As children age, the "things" can change into a perfect body. Not a single things will cause problems and affect girls self confidence in the future.

    Providing positive role models to girls also can be a good ways to increase girls self confidence. As we knows, girls will acts according to the situations and peoples surrounding them, whatever the girl think is right and appropriate they will do it exactly the same. Example, if the women or a mother in a young girl's lifestyle show bad habit or behavior such as always complaining about other people and show their angers inappropriately all the time, the young girl definitely may feel that it is just not an appropriate expression of feeling angry about someone. Excessive anger will reduce a girls self confidence on handling problems in life. Because girls choose to expose their anger in the wrong manner, they might felt their life full of stress and non-trustable people who seems to cares about them. As a result, girls might feel depressed and as a consequence of that, they will lose more of their self confidence. All of this happened because girls do not have positive role models to learn with. We have to figure out this issues if in order to help improve girls self confidence.

    Another way that strong recommends creating girls self confidence is let girls to try out new things and new hobbies. Let girls to discover their new talents by learning from mistakes along the way. Let them learn what they are interest at and we provide all the support and motivation for them. Girls self confidence will be improve dramatically from the support that parents provided. Girls will know that there are acknowledged and also feel valued by their parents and other important occasions as they will generate more mature thinking. Besides that they will also have “out of the box thinking” that makes up girls self confidence.

    Young girls are possible to transform into a girl that have great self confidence if they are being expose to the right method and appropriate learning. Before a girl turn into her adulthood, it is crucial that girl have equipped with great girls self confidence in order for her to faced difficulties and achieve happier life.

    Hi,
    this is an interesting topic. I would like to mention some positives of this topic. Look for a model (someone who has self confidence) and learn from them. What is it they do that makes them confident, how do they act?
    -Focus on your achievements rather than your failures. If you do find yourself thinking about how you failed then look at what you managed to do right and how you could correct what you did next time.
    -Learn how to feel good about yourself
    -Act as if you were self confident! You will feel more confident.
    -Focus on who you are and what you like about yourself. Why do your friends like you?
    -Prepare thoroughly for any task so that you can be sure you are ready.
    -Work on any skills you need to do what you want, you can never be overtrained or over skilled for any challenge in life.
    -Work on your relaxation skills
    -Always smile and stand up straight
    -Set reachable goals for yourself and break difficult tasks into smaller steps
    -Reward yourself when you succeed no matter how small the achievement
    -Finally, I advise you not to be too competitive or compare yourself with others. Be yourself and accept that life is not a race against others but your self confidence depends on you and your personal needs.


    Self-confidence is being certain and trusting about yourself in regard to addressing certain tasks or all tasks. Self-confidence is critical to effective performance in the workplace and is the source of assertiveness, which is fully representing yourself (your opinions, recommendations, etc.) to others. One's self-confidence can be cultivated by using a variety of approaches, eg, ongoing success when performing tasks, ongoing support and affirmation from supervisors, successful coaching (from oneself and others) in the workplace, etc.

    Self-esteem is a one's overall belief in their value as an individual, a human being. Thus, the concepts of self-esteem and self-confidence are closely related.

    confidence should be there within us as it gives u strength to accomplish work effectively but over confidence will not lead to fruitful results as u will not be able to concentrate on the quality of the work since u know that u are GOOD...feeling good and qualitative about ur efforts makes u feel proud and u tend to be careless in the course of time and actions in the work that is assigned to u...so be in ur limits and make urself understand that u are a normal human being who cannot be right always ..it will make u attentive and active in ur work while performing the same and u will be able to do it in the best of best way...but never loose confidence in urself

    Confidence and Self-confidence is one and the same. Confidence is an important quality a human being should develop from the begining of his/her life for success in life. We can build confidence through knowledge development and delivery at the right time and at the right place. I ideas should be clear and we should be able to communicate those ideas without any doubt. Practising this adds to our confidence and we will be able to face the situvations with more clarity and can win the battle. We should have confidence to face an Examination, Interview or an issue to win ourselves over the same. Confidence building is a timeless process of mastering the knowledge and dlivering the same in the appropriate time.

    Sometimes, people become over confident, that makes him/her to fail the battle. Never under estimate any opponent or issue. We should give all issues due weightage and overcome the same with confidence. Overconfidence makes us lessing thinking and we end with failures.

    Therefore Interact meaningfully with good persons, Read books and news papers daily, so that we can improve our confidence leave and win in our life.
