The importance of confidence.

21 Apr

‘What is confidence?’ , a question I am often asked in a week. It’s a difficult concept for young people because they confuse it with arrogance . I mean, there is an often used phrase out there called being ‘a boss’ or being ‘a g’. These terms also come with that term ‘respect me’. I would argue though that real confidence involves having that belief in yourself and really working at living your best life possible. Doing the things that really make you feel good from within so that the sun shines for you all of the time.

You see, I work with a lot of young people in education. I love it, truly there is nothing more fabulous than seeing young minds, or any minds to that, develop. It’s a little sad sometimes when they don’t appreciate all that they have to give and when exams are approaching, don’t quite take themselves seriously enough. There is this underlying current that society owes them, or will provide. They miss out on that wonderful feeling of doing it for themselves. It is, I believe, a fear, or lack of confidence.This is important for I believe that confidence in themselves will get the results. If they take what they know and apply it well, how great results day will be.

This was clear this week when a few students who have come to me as kittens have grown into real lions and lionesses! They learned to believe in themselves and how to focus on their happiness and achieved such fabulous grades. Well done guys!

So confidence is key, one day they will be bosses but they should recognise, a boss is confident and positive in their outlook. They are happy to pass this confidence on to those looking up to them. They inspire and lead a happy, full , good life.
