Knowing your strengths alone
will already do more than half the work of boosting your self-confidence.
When you know you can do things, when you know you can achieve
what you aim for, your esteem of yourself (the way you value
yourself) is boosted.
Knowing your limits, on the other
hand, is equally crucial in knowing how to gain self-confidence.
Because you know that you cannot do certain things, you will
not thrust yourself into tasks that you will be a failure at.
It is failure that push people
into depression and insecurities. When you avoid instances that
would encourage this, you are saving yourself from the risk
and the pain of failure, and you are doing yourself a favor
by collecting victories and avoiding instances of defeat.
In knowing how to gain
self-confidence, you are holding a full house in your
hands. Play your cards well, deal with life with a rosy outlook
through a robust self-esteem, and you will be collecting feathers
in you cap in no time.
