The reason for low self confidence can almost always be summed up in one word:
"FEAR - False Evidence Appearing Real" -Veer Sharma
Identifying and recognizing what we are afraid of, is an important first step in learning and understanding how to build confidence.
to name a few.
Fears like these usually originate, and gain ground, from our perception of how other people would react at us - based on our past experiences or our imagination - leading us to being shy when not necessary.
And not only do they erode our self confidence, but worse, sometimes these dreaded feelings escalate into social anxiety and anxiety attacks as well.
The key to building self confidence is to FACE the underlying fear. And practice doing that, until you MASTER the fear.
as we slowly gain belief in ourselves, it is only a matter of time
before the lack of self confidence becomes a matter of past.
