Is confidence the antidote to stress?
When I am stressed about how I am dressed, lack of confidence is the problem. Yes, this happens to me! When I am confident, I am comfortable in my choice of clothes and comfortable in my skin.
If I am stressed about my performance on anything from cooking for an event to coaching a client, confidence would help me think clearer, make better decisions, and perform well.
When I am stressed about what people think about me, lack of confidence is the problem. If I was fully confident, I would allow them to think what they wanted to, and even find it funny – because I know it isn’t true.
When I am stressed about being late, confidence would help me to be calm, drive with skill, choose a good route, or call ahead to apologize and re-schedule.
As confidence grows, life is so much more enjoyable!
