Define: Confidence.

Yay another 'Define' post.

Tbh, I love writing these types of post as it really tests my intellectual side of my brain.

Sometimes I am confident.

It depends on the situation that I'm in. For example, when it comes to speaking to new people - I feel like this comes so natural to me as I've learnt how to build up a casual conversation with anyone. But then again when it comes to things like trying to sing in front of someone, that's a no-go zone! (unless you catch me belting out a tune in my room oops - and I do this like everyday).

Confidence is something we all have; yet not everyone knows how to possess it. In regards to confidence, I knew that I wanted to be in a relationship someday, but I feared that if I got into one I’d do something to mess it up. I still feel like this to this day, but I had the confidence to put myself out there. I'm not saying if you're confident it'll get you in a relationship, but it does help work your way up there.

Maybe you’ve never been as unsure of yourself as I used to be, but you can likely relate to that feeling of wanting to do something but feeling terrified to start. This not only limits your potential in life; it also minimizes your ability to make a positive impact on the world around you. I personally don't think confidence can be learned. In some cases it may, but for me I had to physically put myself out there and leave my comfort zone to become the person that I am today. As you guys know that I just love to make lists filled with advice - so here are some things that I had to put into consideration when trying to gain confidence.

1. Know your Strengths & Weaknesses!

2. Trust your capabilities!

3. Embrace the unknown!

4. Project your Voice!

5. Take Risks!

Going back to what I said before, everyone has confidence. It just depends on how you unlock it to its full potential. If you got it, you got it and if you're not there yet just wait your time will come :)

"Confidence is something you create within yourself by believing in who YOU are."
