Today I want share a very important topic that seems to stem confusion to a lot of people. I call A lot of people think they mean the same thing, just in different words. They think that it is the way you feel, your own emotions. While that is true, they both are different types of emotions within the person. Don’t get me wrong, these are both very important traits to have for any person, but there are a few different things in between.
What is Self Confidence
Self Confidence has to do with the way you feel about doing certain things. For example you could have high confidence that you are going to pass a science class. You are are going to feel good about taking that class because you know you are good in it. However if you are going to take a math class, and you know that you stink in that class. You are not going to feel very confident in that class, in fact your confidence might be low. So as you can see, Self Confidence is the feeling that is directly correlated with the ability to do things. When it comes to confidence, its all about mindset and It is all about weaknesses and strengths.
What about Self Esteem
Self Esteem is your sense of well being. It is based on what you see yourself, as well as how you feel about yourself. Your Self Esteem influences your mind set dramatically when it comes to your life. Your Self-Esteem is determined in come cases such as where you live, your background and most importantly how you were raised and treated in childhood. These traits have a big impact on your overall self esteem. For example: As a kid, if your parents and “friends” around you treat you like crap and call you names that you wouldn’t like otherwise, I really don’t think that you are going to have a good self-esteem, unless you go through a major paradigm shift. However, if you were raised by great parents and good household, chances are you are going to have a good self-esteem. Once again it all depends on you mindset.
