Confidence vs Self Confidence

Confidence vs. Self Confidence

In this episode, I dig into confidence vs. self-confidence, a common issue among us nurses, is believing we are not confident enough to do something. I started by separating confidence and self-confidence into external and internal factors, where confidence is seen as an external validation and self-confidence comes from within.

Three main factors contribute to self-confidence: trusting yourself at all times, being open to experiencing any emotion, and your thoughts about yourself.

There is also a misconception that confidence comes from being competent in something, and it clarifies that confidence comes from repetition, but self-confidence comes from within.

Self-confidence is not arrogance but rather trust in oneself, willingness to experience both positive and negative emotions, and managing thoughts about oneself.

This episode is a must-listen for anyone looking to build their self-confidence. I provide insightful and practical tips on cultivating self-confidence, which is essential for success in any career or aspect of life.
