What is Confidence?
Confidence means having a realistic, inner sense of our capabilities. Trusting ourselves and our abilities is crucial to managing emotional challenges and succeeding with goals in life. A healthy amount of confidence is essential to mental health and success and improves decision-making and resilience. The key to confidence is self-awareness, to allow ourselves to experience and reflect on even the most unpleasant emotions.
Did You Know? Completing activities increases confidence, so the best way to build confidence is to take action, face challenges, and create situations where we can be successful even when we are uncertain.
