In the article, “How to get the most out of yourself” written by Alan Loy McGinnis, the message that he is trying to convey is that self-image is the key to being confident. Confidence in one-self can help achieve almost anything, even the goals that seem impossible. At first, it might be hard to implement confidence, but never give up on anything, always push yourself and try harder. Sometimes, when nothing is going right, use that energy to change your luck and change it into something positive. Focusing on your strong aspects helps you conquer fear mentally and socially. Never compare yourself to people above you, because at the end of the day all that work that is put into being confident could backfire and not work in anyone’s favor, let it come naturally and that will make you happy and confident life. People tend to quit rather than continuing and succeeding in it. Another way of building our confidence is by seeing yourself as successful. In order for anyone to be successful they should always think positive about their goals they are trying to achieve, but usually people are so insecure with there abilities to do things. Seeing themselves as successful is hard for them. Another way is “Breaking away from other people’s expectations”. Be who you truly are not what other people will like the real you better. The last one is building a network of supportive relationships a good friendship is a great way of building our confidence, making sure we have a lot of love from our family and friends.
