Confident women have been always shaping the world with their energy, strength and courage. Above all, they seem to live their lives as if nothing can get in their way and there are no obstacles that can stop them. Moreover, a confident woman takes on the whole world with an aura of grace and strength that ignites inspiration and respect. Above all, confident women make the world a better place.
But how do they achieve that? Is it only intrinsic factors such as their strength and ambition that paves their way to success? Or maybe they are just simply born like that? While some of this might be true, it isn’t quite right.
In fact, for most women building their self-confidence takes time, a lot of work and life experience.

- Accept and love themselves for who they are.
- Trust themselves.
- Keep promises, to themselves and others.
- Live with integrity.
- Don’t doubt themselves.
- Are decisive.
- Are brave.
1. They Accept and Love Themselves for Who They Are
Let’s face it. A confident woman knows that the person who she will always surely be with is herself. For the confident woman, life is too short and too precious to waste any second of it on wondering, wanting or searching for eventually other people to accept and to love her. Thus, she accepts and loves herself for who she is.
Her self-love is in the center and the deep root of her self-confidence. Therefore, a confident woman does not crave a different life, or a different body, or a different mind. She accepts, loves and takes good care of herself. Therefore, she does not do things that are not good for her. Moreover, she spends her time mostly with people who make her feel good. When she looks around herself and she sees that everything that surrounds her is exactly how it should be. And that makes her feel good and comfortable. But most importantly, she truly understands that she is the right person in the right place at the right time.
2. Confident Women Trust Themselves
As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live.”
― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Faust, First Part
Confident women know that trusting yourself is still as simple as it sounds and it’s given to all living creatures from birth. How? Never forget, that we all were born naked, hungry, tiny, with limited vision and limited control of our bodies. Not to mention our limited communication skills. We were born apparently knowing nothing about the world. It’s almost scary, how fragile we all are born. But obviously, we trust ourselves, to come to this world and we trusted the universe to survive. We all have found someone, to take good care of us, to feed us, to dress us, to love us, otherwise, we would not be able to read this right now. Thus, a confident woman knows that even if we don’t realize it, we actually always bear endless trust in ourselves.
3. They Keep Promises
A confident woman knows that the promises she makes, make her. Thus, her self-confidence comes from integrity. So simple is that. In the first place, she knows that promises are made to be kept and not to be broken. Keeping a promise is, therefore, for her, not an option. It’s an obligation. It’s an expression of her self-love, trust, respect, and discipline.
4. Confident Women Live with Integrity
“If it is not right do not do it; if it is not true do not say it.”
― Marcus Aurelius, Meditations
For the confident woman, living with integrity means to live in harmony with herself. Namely, her thoughts, words, and actions are in harmony. In her life, she seeks neither the favor nor the approval of others. She is true to herself. In the end, she always does the right thing even if it’s hard.
5. They Don’t Doubt Themselves
The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease for ever to be able to do it. J. M. Barrie, Peter Pan
A confident woman knows that doubt and fear defeat more people than any other one thing in the world. So, she doesn’t waste her time to doubt herself. She follows her dreams and follows her plans. She is a doer. When someone tells her “no, you cannot do it” she knows that it doesn’t mean that she can’t do it. It simply means that this is what they believe. And this is not her reality.
6. They Are Decisive
“In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing. The worst thing you can do is nothing.”
― Theodore Roosevelt
A self-confident woman is decisive. She knows that life is not about necessarily to take the right decision. She knows that you need just to take a decision and then make it right.
7. They Are Brave
“It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.”
― Mark Twain
Confident women are brave. They follow their dreams, and dare to live the life they dreamed of.
