    I'm mainly referring to self-confidence. I think self-confidence is when one is not swayed by compliments or criticism and has an objective view on his/her strengths and weaknesses.

    Sometimes it almost seems as if to be very confident you have to be flawless, but in my view it's perfectly possible to be open (i.e. confident) with your weaknesses. Afterall no-one's infallible.

    So what does confidence mean to you? Has there been an instance when you were wowed by someone's confidence?

    Tell me what you think.

    As simply as possible, it means to me that a man's self esteem is not tied up in what other people think about him, good or bad.

    The inward perception that you can do and achieve and that you will be successful..
    The ability to try new things without fear of failure and if you fail, getting up and moving forward.

    Being unafraid of your own vulnerabilities, and being unafraid to express them.

    Being able to accept yourself for who you are, know there is always room for improvement, striving to be the best person you can, not relying on the flattery of others to boost one's ego, not letting the criticisms of others crush your ego and not being afraid to test your limits and try new things (even if there's a good chance of failure).

    To me, confidence means knowing you're hot and rocking what ya got, regardless of what others think.
    There's a fine line between confidence and cockiness, and I like both. icon_wink.gif

    Self Confidence is knowing yourself well enough to believe in your mental, physical, emotional and spiritual abilities. It also means that you will take responsibility for your actions, thoughts and words after they have happened. Self Confidence is an earned trait of maturity and experience. If you aren't "sweating it" and don't need to "brag about it", that is confidence...if you ARE "sweating it" and need to "brag about it" afterward, not confidence , but (immature) cockiness....icon_biggrin.gif
