If you really put a small value on yourself,
rest assured that the world will not raise your price...
It has been said that self-confidence gives you the freedom to make mistakes and
cope with failure without feeling that your world has come to an end or that you
are a worthless person. Self confidence is that person who is willing and
capable of laughing at themselves and able to joke about themselves
without feeling as if they have done anything wrong nor having
to worry what the rest of the world thinks of you.
As a child I was extremely shy...some may have mistaken that for lack of confidence.
Wrong. Growing up in Puerto Rico and then experiencing life in New York made
me a very confident person. This being said, it does not mean that everything
I do is correct, does not mean I am never wrong, it does not mean I do not
make mistakes...what it means is that I am capable of recognizing my
faults and of trying to always improve myself.
Does it always work? Probably not, but it never stops me from trying
and to keep moving forward. The key is not to be afraid of
failure...just pick yourself up and keep going forward.
I know it does not come easy for everyone. I notice that many who lack self
confidence are very envious and jealous of others....this can also be due to
being immature I am not sure how it works, but I know it does not accomplish much.
Instead of spending your time brooding about other people's lives my suggestion
is to live your own. Don't long for what others have, be it your best friend,
your sibling or some other person. Strive to make the most of you...
To wish you were someone else is to waste the person you are.
Below are some cool sayings I found, and to me they tell exactly what it is to have
confidence in yourself....basically you don't really give a damm what the world
or others think of you because you know you strive to be the best person
you can and you never go out of your way to hurt another human being....
LOVE ME, HATE ME - EITHER WAY YOU'RE THINKING OF ME!
I DON'T PRETEND TO BE SOMEONE THAT I'M NOT... BUT IF YOU'D LIKE TO SEE ME
AS SOMEONE WHO IS GORGEOUS, RICH AND FAMOUS THAT'S FINE WITH ME.
WARNING: I HAVE AN ATTITUDE AND I KNOW HOW TO USE IT!
Yep! Still smiling at these funny sayings. If you know my sister Rima,
then you know these would be her exact words. She is amazing and unique.
Confidence does not mean you are perfect it means you are capable of recognizing
your faults and never afraid of trying to always improve and better yourself.
It means you know when to tell the rest of the world to mind their own
business and not bat an eyelash...just because you can!!!
|OUR SUNDAY TOGETHER|
the most of the "fantastic" sales and "savings" going on in the retail world, but most
of all I hope that so far you have all had a good time with family and friends.
My family like many other American families are having a BBQ day.
Confidence comes not from always being right but from not fearing to be wrong.
The late Estee Lauder says you can never wear white shoes after Labor Day.
But of course, in today's world, that does not exist...
