True Confidence And The Development Of Wisdom

3:01 pm in Pyschology That Helps by seph

If we really believe in ourselves, who we are, what our purpose is in this world and what we can offer those around us, then barely any quantity of criticism or praise that can knock us off our center.

It’s only when a woman or man builds himself on the compliments or criticisms of others that their personality begins to take a dive.

To prosper in this world, you really have to have thick skin. For absolutely no reason at all the wolves will come out after you and try and tear you and your reputation to shreds. Similarly, people around you’ll compliment you with hollow praise and try to bring your ego up. If we slide into allowing both of these tactics of the world to create us, we will get caught up in a whole world of suffering.

The solution?

We need to trust in ourselves. While this is proving to be one of the roughest things to do it’s also one of the most beneficial lessons you can ever learn in life. No matter what, when the difficulties and praise comes, you still can maintain who you are. The enticements of life will make attempts to make you change who you are into what the world would like you to be.

Avoid this at all costs. Don’t change for those reasons. Instead, change for yourself and who you know you might be in future times. Continue to grow and continue to build upon your life day in and day out because that is what feels right to you.

Then, when you finally reach the end of the line, you’ll always be able to say that you stayed true to yourself regardless of everything else. To me, that sounds a bit like a pretty happy life.

So start believing in yourself. You never know what you are capapble of until you really go for it.
