As college students we are all still trying to figure out what we want out of life and how to go about getting it. Confidence is something that we all struggle with. You can can lack confidence in many areas, from pursuing you dreams — to speaking to guy/girl you have a crush on. Confidence is something that everyone can have and its just a step away. I will be doing a Q and A on confidence below, if there is any questions that I did not answer or address then leave a comment below and I will get back to you personally.

#1: What is confidence?
Confidence is the feeling or belief that one can rely on someone or something; firm trust.
My definition: Confidence is something that you obtain from others around you but more importantly confidence is a personality trait.
Question #2: How do you know that you are confident?
Answer: You know that you are confident when people can give you their opinion about you and it does not change how you feel about yourself. You have confidence when you can walk into a room and you demand the attention of others, you walk with pride. You are confident when you accept that you are not perfect and not everyone is going to like you but its okay because you are comfortable with yourself.
Question #3: How do I gain confidence?
Answer: First, you have to be comfortable with who you are. If you don’t like yourself then no one else will, confidence is something that is visible. You have to accept the person in the mirror. Secondly, compliment yourself, there is nothing wrong with loving things about yourself its not cocky its confidence. Third, remain humble don’t let every comment someone makes affect you so much that you feel that you always have to change yourself. No one is perfect so remember that you are still growing and your still human!!
Question #4: Should I be worried if I don’t have confidence?
Answer: No, no one is completely happy with the way that they look. Confidence is something that grows over time and even when your 30 years old you will be still looking for confidence. You are never to old.
