I will not make it boring. Let me start with asking few questions:
1. Do you think you are confident? How do you know it?
Ok! If you decide or think on something and you check with 10 other people to confirm if your decision or thoughts are correct…. And then you say you are confident??
Now this is really a paradox!!
2. Do you trust Yourself or believe in yourself? how do you know it?
Do people’s thoughts and comments bring you down and you start doubting your decisions and thoughts or actions? Then is this called believe in self?
Dictionary meaning of trust:
Firm belief in the reliability, truth, or ability of someone or something without evidence or investigation
Dictionary meaning of confidence:
The feeling or belief that one can have faith in or rely on someone or something
3. Do you tell someone that you trust them after investigation with 10 people? Then do you really trust them? Go back to the dictionary meaning of the word trust.
Either you trust or don’t trust. Trust cannot come after evidences and investigation.
Look back and rethink if you are confident and you trust without any of the above.
Then you really are!!
