12 habits of genuinely confident people
Genuinely confident people can be the strong, silent type, someone who smiles and gives you a good handshake, or even the center of attention at every party, yet they all hold a few things in common.
Travis Bradberry at Forbes explains what sets the confident apart, and how you can start cultivating this characteristic in yourself with twelve shifts in habits.
1. They Get Their Happiness From Within
Happiness is a critical element of confidence, because in order to be confident in what you do, you have to be happy with who you are.
People who brim with confidence derive their sense of pleasure and satisfaction from their own accomplishments, as opposed to what other people think of their accomplishments. They know that no matter what anyone says, you’re never as good or bad as people say you are.
2. They Don’t Pass Judgment
Confident people don’t pass judgment on others because they know that everyone has something to offer, and they don’t need to take other people down a notch in order to feel good about themselves. Comparing yourself to other people is limiting. Confident people don’t waste time sizing people up and worrying about whether or not they measure up to everyone they meet.
