I think everyone is most confident when they are being themselves and not trying to impress others. Bethany Mota
How often do you buy stuff you don’t need, with money you don’t have, to impress people you don’t really know. If you remove the need to impress others (which can be a challenge) then you’ll be surprised at the changes that take place. You gain clearer direction about what you want to achieve, your focus becomes more positive and you start believing more in yourself, which in turn strengthens your confidence. The truth is that it is this way of approaching life that brings contentment and happiness and will bring more acceptance from others, because other people will always take their cue from how you see yourself.
A rhetorical question … is it more important to impress others, or to be happy in yourself?
