Do you feel low about yourself most of the time? Do you feel like you’re not up to being the best in doing most of the tasks given to you? Do you feel afraid to go and talk to that girl you like? Do you feel like your talents are going waste because you don’t know how to handle social situations?
If any one answer for the questions above is a ‘YES’, this article is exactly what you need.
Who is the one person that comes to your mind when you read the word “Self-Confidence”? To me, it’s Robert Downey Junior – The Iron Man himself. For a lot of people who have seen his on-screen persona, there’s no doubt he can effectively portray a cocky, self-confident, sometimes arrogant yet charming person more than convincingly. But only those who have seen his real-life interviews, social presence, etc., will know his on-screen persona reflects his off-screen persona. That charisma comes from being so damn self-confident.
Self-Confidence is the most priceless asset that anyone can have. Who doesn’t want to be self-confident? Everyone wants it. Very few know their way towards it. But most of us suffer without confidence.
For some of us, the lack of self-confidence is because of the way we are conditioned right from our childhood. For some of us, it is due to the circumstances we faced in our childhood and adolescence. For some, it is due to the failures they faced in relationships, setbacks they faced in social situations.
How can I change this? How can I stop putting myself down? How can I stop letting myself down? How can I take the damn control of my life in my own hands and start being the confident man/woman that I wanna be?
The answer is here. If you are not naturally self-confident, you can bring confidence in you, in many ways. Some of those ways are based on human psychology. You will be fascinated by getting to know these little hacks that essentially hack your body and mind and help bring that Iron Man Robert Downey Jr like self-confidence and sometimes the accompanying charming cockiness into you.
