Self - confidence

First of all, let me apologize for aaaaaall my orthographic and my veeery veery big grammatical faults. Please try to understand me, I'm still studying English, I'm Spanish and my level isn't high enough to be writting stuff on this blog D: (futhermore I'm too lazy to use a dictionary while I'm writting XD)

Anyway.. let's start this update! Today I'd like to talk about self-confidence.

"Interviewer: What makes you feel the sexiest?


- I think when you are confident by yourself...
-Yeah! you can be sexy anywhere, no matter what are you wearing.
-If you believe in what you are wearing and in who you are, then you know, you get that sexy build going on.
-Yes, self confidence is very sexy.*laughs* "

I've heard those words in an interview on . The interviewed people were four young artists from the EEUU called Jazmin Sisters.

I've always been afraid of showing too much self-confidence, but it looks that many artist from many different entretainment companies use that image to commercialize. And some of those companies are really really really succesfull all over the world. Does self confidence really make you look more attractive to other people? Think about the answer while you're watching this video:

I want to give you an example of the self confidence I'm trying to talk about. It's the lastest single of 2ne1 which is called "Clap your hands" (they're actually one of my favourite corean music/dancers band ^^):

Their confidence makes them look really cool, doesn't it?
then.. how about the question? Have you got a clear answer? Here I have it: Self-confidence is a key to succes in our daily lifes.

People who lack self-confidence can find it difficult to become successful. Futhermore let me tell you that self-confident people inspire confidence in others: their audience, their peers, their bosses, their customers, and their friends. And gaining the confidence of others is one of the key ways in which a self-confident person finds success.

If you believe in yourself, things get easier and you can easily get what you want. If you truly think "If I try my best, I'm definetly going to get my objective" the probabilities to get your objective increase.

However, let's stop and think about what self- confidence is in first place. Which definition would you give to that expression? I've been seeking on the net and found this one, which I really liked "What is Self-Confidence?

"Self-confidence is essentially an attitude which allows us to have a positive and realistic perception of ourselves and our abilities. It is characterised by personal attributes such as assertiveness, optimism, enthusiasm, affection, pride, independence, trust, the ability to handle criticism and emotional maturity.

Two main things contribute to self-confidence: self-efficacy and self-esteem.
" When we talk about self efficacy, we're talking about getting our objectives successfully. In fact, I'm refering to realistic objectives. I think that setting realstic objectives and getting them can increase our self-confidence. Even if some of those objectives are not met, those with confidence continue being positive, they keep on believing in themselves and accepting their current limitations with renewed energy. However, having high self-confidence does not mean they will be able to do everything they want! Remember that human aren't perfect machines, but confident people keep on being positive and that attitude makes gets their goals closer to be successful.

And obviously, loving ourselves is the most important point to get that self-confidence.

Self-esteem is the opinion you have of yourself. It is based upon how you perceive your value as a person based on your experience.

Unfortunately, your self-confidence isn't something you can get in 5 minutes. It's a slow process... but it's not something impossible to get. If you're patient you can become a really bright person.

I'll include you a very interesting link to a website where it's shortly explained how to get self confidence. I've read it all and found it really interesting. Just have a look when you'll have some free time: This website is better than the one I've just sent you, but it takes longer to read:

Be careful and do not confuse being condifent with "feeling that I'm the best". It's not the same. And also take care of not falling in perfeccionism world, it won't let you advance on your objectives, and it's really hard to leave that planet, trust me.

In short, self confience is necessary and indispensable and 2ne1 are really cool. =D thanks a lot for reading me! (If someone really did)

Good night ~~ ! can leave here all the comments you want.
