I know what you’re thinking. “I want a pony”. Of course you do, you’re only human. But the second thing you’re probably thinking is “Why is this pony so damn confident and, more importantly, how can I be this confident?”

Confidence is one of those things that we all want, but only some of us have it.  But confidence is just like any other skill, it can be developed.

3 Biggest Myths About Self Confidence

1. “It’s something you’re born with”

For some, confidence seems to come so naturally, almost as if they were born with it. That is simply not true. Self confidence is just like any other skill, and can be learned and developed.

2. “I’d feel more confident if I knew I’d succeed at something new”

You’re not going to succeed at everything you do, that is a fact of life. You cannot allow fear to control your decisions. Try to remember that with each failure, comes new experience and understanding, making you even stronger for the next attempt at something new.

3. “Once it’s gone, it’s gone for good”

How can you know if you’ll succeed if you’ve never tried?  Losing self confidence can be devastating but, as with any other skill, you can ‘get back on the horse’ and rebuild it even stronger than before.
