Confidence:full trust; belief in the powers, trustworthiness, or reliability of person or thing.” 

Today’s theme of words deals with confidence. In a world where cyber bullying has become ubiquitous and the competition has become more cutthroat than ever in any industry you associate with, it is imperative to have confidence in yourself. With advancement in technology and information readily available at your fingertips at any point in the day, the world is becoming more saturated with people who continually educate and better themselves day after day.
It is no longer ok to rely on the “fake it till you make it” strategy. In order to be successful at anything in life, you must be confident in what you are capable of. You have to know your strengths and have the ability to back it up. If you cannot believe in your abilities, you will be eaten alive. Now you don’t have to be ostentatious and gaudy in your talents, just have unwavering faith in yourself. Remember, confident not arrogant. There is a big difference.

Confidence is a key leadership quality and is extremely magnetizing. It’s what draws your attention to choosing who you want in your team. A person who is doubtful of themselves will succumb to their insecurities which results into mistakes and lack of productivity. Be confident and never undermine yourself. Look to what attributes that exude confidence and harness them within yourself.
