Hey guys! Today's little pause for thought is on confidence. I have never been a particularly confident person, I'm just naturally quite quiet and so confidence was something that I particularly had to work on but it has improved as I've got older. I know that to some people confidence comes naturally but to others having confidence isn't really in their nature. In my experience however confidence is really important, not only for job interviews when you get older, but in every day life. Something which I started to notice when I got older was that if you say something with confidence rather than timidly, people don't really say anything about it. For example if you say that you want to do something and you say it confidently, people are more likely to do it with you. Just the same as if you're arguing and you're speaking confidently you're more likely to be believed and respected. Confidence is really important to have, to be able to express yourself confidently is really needed. Think about times when you backed down from something but should have had the confidence to stand up for yourself. Would the situation had gone better?
Lots of love
