- THEY ARE NOT AFRAID OF LONELINESS
The people around you have a great influence on your well-being and self-confidence. Self-confident people know this! That’s why they choose the people around them themselves, even if it means being alone. They are not afraid to see the relationships they have for what they are, even if it means recognising that some of them are no longer relevant. Self-confidence also means knowing how to let go of people who no longer have a place in your life because having them costs you too much in time or peace of mind. They know that their well-being comes before being around them and that whatever happens, they can rely on themselves.
- THEY TAKE CARE OF THEIR BODIES
Self-confidence is also confidence in the body. We can only trust what we know. So a person who is ultra confident knows her body and its needs. They know that it is their main tool to carry out everything they do and that they have to work with it. Knowing your body does not mean being a supermodel! It’s about knowing how to listen to it enough to keep it healthy so that you can achieve whatever you want!
- THEY DON’T COMPROMISE THEMSELVES
People who are ultra confident are not afraid to say no. They are not afraid to put their money where their mouth is. They are not afraid to set limits because they are aligned with what they are really willing to do and what they know would cost them too much. Knowing how to say no also means not being afraid of hurting or losing someone because you have been honest with yourself and with the other person. When you feel you don’t want to do something, really ask yourself why you feel compelled to say yes and learn to assert your opinions!
- THEY DON’T WANT TO BE RIGHT
We all know people who are desperate to have the last word. They are only quiet when they feel they have ‘won’ the exchange. Why is this? Because they seek to assuage their insecurities through these “small victories”. People who are ultra-confident know that they don’t have to rally the world to their cause to know that they are in the right. They also know that their energy is precious and that if someone doesn’t want to listen to reason, there’s no point wasting it!
- THEY KNOW THEIR STRENGTHS AND WHAT THEY ARE CAPABLE OF
Just as it is important to know your body, it is equally important to know your strengths! It is not arrogance to know what you are good at. That’s what people who are ultra confident do. They know what they are capable of and don’t hesitate to bet on it to excel!
- THEY RECOGNISE THEIR AREAS FOR IMPROVEMENT
Knowing yourself also means knowing your weaknesses. But weakness does not mean defect. You will notice that we are not talking about limits either! People who are ultra confident in themselves are not afraid of making mistakes because they know that this is part of the process. They know what needs to be worked on and, if they can’t do it, they willingly admit it because they know it doesn’t make them less valuable.
- THEY DO NOT JUDGE OTHERS AND ARE HAPPY FOR THEM
Judging and criticising others is often a sign of insecurity. It shows a need to put others down to reassure oneself of one’s own worth. Self-confident people are comfortable with who and what they are. They do not waste time judging others and instead know how to rejoice in their successes!
- THEY PREPARE THEMSELVES, CULTIVATE THEIR SELF-CONFIDENCE AND LOVE THEMSELVES FOR WHO THEY ARE
What makes the difference in success between two people of equal potential is the degree of preparation given. People who are confident know that it is not innate. It is a constant work of preparation, focusing on one’s own successes, but also knowing how to love oneself. People who are ultra-confident know that they are not perfect, but they work on their strengths, know their weaknesses and, above all, work constantly to maintain their love for themselves.
