I was listening to a podcast from Ed Mylett and his perspective made me contemplate about self confidence. Often confidence is built by the realization of achieving a goal and stretching those goals once complete but there is another dimension which is intent. This is the dimension of psychological self confidence when the mind feels satisfied with one self. Having the ability to understand yourself, yourstand your strengths and understand what motivates you is the key to psychological self confidence. With this, one can venture more into activities that build this inner strength which can have compounding effects over time. Often one can lose interest in an activity upon the first attempt without a gratifying result. But through psychological practice and having the intent to succeed, this can train the mind to persist and achieve that goal. The intent must be strong enough for one to succeed – whether it is the intent to serve or the intent to find happiness. This self reflection is equally important in building self confidence.
