Confidence is Sexy: Are you wearing yours today?

Don’t know what to wear today?  How about just wearing your confidence.  It can be worn anytime, in any season and it costs you nothing!

Confidence

Self-confidence is an attitude which allows individuals to have positive yet realistic  views of themselves and their situations.  Self-confident people trust their own abilities,  have a general sense of control in their lives, and believe that, within reason, they will  be able to do what they wish, plan, and expect. Having self-confidence does not mean that individuals will be able to do everything.   Self-confident people have expectations that are realistic.  Even when some of their  expectations are not met, they continue to be positive and to accept themselves.

People who are not self-confident depend excessively on the approval of others in order to   feel good about themselves.  They tend to avoid taking risks because they fear failure.   They generally do not expect to be successful.  They often put themselves down and tend to  discount or ignore compliments paid to them.  By contrast, self-confident people are  willing to risk the disapproval of others because they generally trust their own abilities.   They tend to accept themselves; they don’t feel they have to conform in order to be  accepted.

Self-confidence is not necessarily a general characteristic which pervades all aspects  of a person’s life.  Typically, individuals will have some areas of their lives where they  feel quite confident, e.g., academics, athletics, while at the same time they do not feel  at all confident in other areas, e.g., personal appearance, social relationships.
