Confidence

Is a gem only YOU can give to you...

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.
Don't compare your life to others! 

Most people seem to think that the most confident people are ‘beautiful’ people or ‘successful’ people but usually this is not the case. Confident people are people who have the ability to stand in their own personal power and believe in themselves. They are people who are sound and content with who they are & often are not bothered about others opinions of them.

One thing that most people don’t realise is that, everyone is insecure about something. And while you are sitting there thinking about how someone is judging you, they’re probably thinking the same thing about how you must be judging them, about something.

Once you release the idea that you need other peoples approval and come to understand that self acceptance and self contentment are king, confidence will naturally follow. Self contentment breeds confidence.

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
