Confidence is key when it comes to preparing for life experiences. It’s confidence and self-assurance that allow us to keep moving forward. In this blog, I'll walk you through the importance of self-assurance, the misconceptions, and how to build it up in the workplace.
What is self-assurance and why is it important?
Self-assurance is your attitude and perception about your own abilities and skills. It means you accept and trust yourself and have a sense of control in your life. You can pinpoint your strengths, weaknesses, and set realistic goals and expectations for yourself.
Being self-assured yields great results. Not just for you but those around you as well. Self-assurance, just like self-confidence, gives you the ability to explore outside your comfort zone. You’re willing to experience smart risks, push out negativity, and gain motivation to fulfill personal and professional goals.
Your success will be determined by your own confidence and fortitude.
