Seven things self confident people don't do
2nd July, 20150 Comments
People who have self-confidence have self belief. They are aware no one will believe in them if they don't believe in themselves. They are not arrogant, they don't strut around, they have a strong faith within themselves that means they don't have to show off or prove themselves. It's very attractive.
Here are seven things highly self confident people don't do.
1. They don't get hooked into drama
Highly self confident people do not indulge in negativity, drama and gossip. They are like the wise sage, they walk away if anyone tries to hook them into a drama. They are not interested in 'he said' 'she said' and triviality. They don't invest time and energy into situations that they cannot change, they prefer to sit in the solution, rather than the problem.
2. They don't compare and despair
Highly confident people do not need to compete. They have self assurance and self respect. They know each of us are unique and it would be a futile exercise to compete, compare and despair.
3. They don't take others opinions as the truth
Highly self confident people believe opinions are opinions and not facts. They are respectful to others opinions but that doesn't mean they will always agree or act on what someone else says because they are a boss or in an important position or wealthy or famous. They ask their advice and courteously listen then they go away and listen to themselves and dip into their power within before making a decision.
4. They don't people please
Highly self confident people are honest and integral and they know people pleasing is manipulative and dishonest so they don't participate in it. They are kind and generous with time and energy and money, when they have it, but they know they can only give away what they have. If they don't have the time, money or energy they don't people please and give it away.
5. They don't judge people
Highly confident people do not feel the need to put others down in order to make themselves feel more superior. They are not two faced, they say what they mean and mean what they say without being mean. Because they are at ease and have self approval and self acceptance they don't feel the need to flag up other people's shortcomings.
6. They don't procrastinate
Highly self confident people are not sitting around waiting for 'the right moment' as they know today is 'the right moment'. They are disciplined and focused and know that time is a currency that can never be refunded. They know procrastination is fear of change and fear of uncertainty and they know the only way to diffuse fear is to walk through it by taking action.
7. They don't look for external validation
Highly confident people know that the more they look for approval, the less they get and the less they look for approval the more they get. They believe what you think of them is none of their business and what they think of you is none of your business.
