Did you ever wonder if you were confident or not ? Or what makes a particular person confident ? How can you tell ? Many people ask themselves this question :
How does a confident person act ?
Well, I'm here to show you 6 different signs that will help you determine if you, or someone you know is a confident person. Ready ? Let's start.
1. You rarely hesitate
Confident people are known for assertiveness, which means that they know what they want and how to get it. The first sign of someone who's really confident is that you rarely hesitate because you chose a path and stuck to it instead of constantly jumping from one decision to another without making a clear choice on what you want to do.
2. You never try to be someone else
I think it's pretty obvious. People who are confident never try to act in fake manner, or try to mimic someone else in order to seem cool or better than who they really are, simply because they appreciate themselves enough to realize that they are good enough so why should they change themselves ?
3. You stick to your ideas when necessary
Confidence means accepting when you're wrong, and changing your ideas if they aren't of any real value. But it also means knowing when to keep them despite what anyone has to say, because many times you'll face rejection from a lot of people despite the fact that you may be right, and they may be absolutely wrong. That's when you have stand up for your beliefs and not let anyone convince you to drop them.
4. You have a sense of direction in life
This means that you're fully aware of what you want in life, and that you have a plan on how you can get to where you want to go. It's hard to be confident about your life, and yourself, if you don't even know where your life is going, and you're not really in control.
5. You're not easily influenced by what others say
This is probably the biggest sign to tell if someone is confident or not, just check if other people can easily manipulate him. Being hard to influence means that you know who you are, what you want, and who to listen to. It means that you're well aware that you are the only one who takes decisions because it's your life, not anyone else's.
6. You're totally comfortable with yourself
In other words, you think you are actually good enough. This means that you really believe that you can do whatever you want, and that you are good enough as a person without constantly needing approval or feeling inferior to other people you know. You can put it this way : you love being you.
7. You don't seek approval from others
Most people turn to others in order to know if what they're doing is 'right', which means that people check if others like what they do to decide if they're doing something good or not. If you're genuinely confident, then you don't need someone to tell you that you're right, because you already know it.
Being able to live your life, and make decisions without caring about what others think of you, or say about you is a major sign of real confidence.
