Very often, having self-confidence is looked at as the ultimate social skill. We all crave it – and for good reason.
People with self-confidence usually find the world a much better place than those who suffer from a lack of it. It’s almost as though they see the world through rose-tinted glasses.
Why is this? Why do people with self-confidence lead so much better lives? Here are some reasons why confidence is such a highly sought after trait.
Confidence breeds trust
People usually find it a whole lot easier to trust a confident person. (Please note, there is a big difference between confidence and over-confidence, the latter of which does not breed trust at all!)
When you go for a job interview full of confidence, the interviewer plays off of it, and he gets the feeling that you are capable of performing the tasks required of the job scope.
When you ask someone out on a date, a confident person gives the girl (or guy) the feeling that they are in good hands and they will trust that a good time will be had.
A confident person is like a man wearing an invisible sign reading “I can do anything, and I can do it well!” – and people’s first instinct will be to trust the person.
Confidence breeds affection
Confident people are well liked by their family, their peers, their colleagues, their business associates, and their friends and by anyone they meet, really.
This may be due to the fact that confidence is akin to happiness. And people enjoy the company of happy people. This is a fact – after all, do you enjoy the company of a sad person? I didn’t think so.
So a confident man is a happy man. And a happy man always has more friends than a sad person.
Confidence commands authority
When a confident man speaks – other people listen. Maybe it’s in the way he talks, or maybe it’s what she is saying, or maybe it’s the reason why they say it.
We’ll never know what exactly the reason is – but the reality is that confident people find it so much easier to get other people to cooperate with them.
And if a confident person can breed trust and happiness in all the people that he or she meets, and can convince people to listen and adhere to what he or she says, then it only follows that he or she will have a much easier path in life than most people.
The power of confidence – it truly is a magical thing. And the best part is, it’s something that everyone and anyone can learn.
So if you wish to benefit from the advantages of self-confidence, now would be a good time to start nurturing that confidence.
