If you BOOKMARK the site, do REFRESH it when you open it, as new items are always being added!

Did you know that the greatest invisible force between any two people - whether in close relationships or at work - is CONFIDENCE? Your confidence and feeling of wellbeing drives your emotional health, which dictates the nature of your actions, and routinely, the quality of your life.

Try putting two people of different confidence levels together as a couple, or as a work team, and see how long they last? It would be like a continual tug of war, plagued with frustrations! The confident person would always be suggesting ideas for new activities while the fearful one, with little confidence in him/herself, is likely to resist them, find fault with them or feel inadequate in acting upon them!

If someone lacks confidence at a job interview, it is unlikely that they will perform at their best or appear suitable to the challenges involved. They are likely to be unduly nervous and apprehensive which will affect the outcome. Again, in any routine interaction, the confident person will always have the edge. He or she is likely to take the initiative and will tend to get their way.

Most important, the most simple task can seem onerous, difficult, burdensome and even overwhelming once we BELIEVE we cannot do it. Unless we can change that negative belief, it would be downhill from there.

People who lack confidence tend to have greater difficulty progressing in life. This is because they lack self-belief, the key element of confidence and they find it hard to say 'No'. They are limited in vision because everything seems almost impossible, or overwhelming, and everyone else seems so much 'better'. They tend to find it difficult to focus, they often seek approval from others and are continually ruled by fear.

That is why confidence can never be taken for granted. It is an essential ingredient in both personal and business success; in being an entrepreneur with the courage to take risks; in leading/managing others; in achieving dreams and desires and in coping with the adversities of life. A confident person, having firm belief in herself, is less fearful, more positive and motivated, more secure and assertive. He is also likely to handle situations much more effectively.

The Sihera Confidence Guide© is designed to help you make sense of an important aspect of life. Enjoy!
