10 Things Truly Confident People Don’t Do

Confidence is one of the biggest factors that differentiate successful people who get what they want and unsuccessful people who don’t. Confidence is a common quality among the most successful people in the world. It’s only the confidence that enables people to pursue their dreams regardless of the looming possibility of failure. Confident people aren’t afraid to take a stand and change the world; they stretch across almost every field and walk of life and can be a father or a millionaire CEO (or both!).

To walk with pride and confidence, pay attention to these 10 things highly confident people don’t do.

1. They don’t worry about being wrong

Confident people are not afraid or worried about being wrong. If they are wrong, they are courteous enough to admit and accept it. They always look for the right thing than being right. They find it as a chance to learn and improve. A truly confident person can admit to anyone that they don’t have all the answers. They take ownership of their thoughts and actions.

2. They don’t speak unless they listen

Confident people are familiar with a lot of things in the world. However, they always prefer to listen more than they speak. They are more interested in knowing other people opinions and thoughts to learn more. When it’s their turn, they express their opinion more comfortably and boldly. Because they’re not driven by deep nervousness, they can let others shine – or be wrong – without jumping in.

3. They don’t live in comfort zone

Truly confident people push themselves out of their comfort zone, because they know this is a place where dreams die. Whenever they don’t get immediate positive results, they force themselves to pursue a feeling of discomfort, until they become comfortable at the new higher level.

4. They don’t hesitate to ask for help

People that are highly confident in their abilities are comfortable admitting their weaknesses, because that shows their strength to use all the available resources. By asking for help, they can add to their skillset and learn from other people who are experts in that respective field. When they seek help, people respect them more and pay the person a huge compliment.

5.  They don’t make comparisons

People with a lot of confidence do not compare themselves with any other individual. They know that they are not competing with no other person except the individual they were in the past. They know that every person is unique and following his own dream; making comparisons would be an illogical and unsophisticated application in futility.

6. They don’t have fear of looking silly

Highly confident people are not worried about being proven wrong or showing unfamiliarity. Rather, they would confess, and own, their failure and errors, and they don’t have a fear of looking silly.  Thus, they will be willing to take more risk, able to recover when faced with difficulty and consequently they will grow personally and professionally to face life’s obstacles.

7. They don’t quit because of minor obstacles

Truly confident people may fall several times, but each time they will rise again. They acknowledge failure as a mandatory part of the growth development. They are like a detective, searching for clues that reveal why this approach didn’t work. After modifying their plan, they try again (but better this time). –

8. They don’t point the finger of blame

Highly confident people set themselves accountable for their own actions. They know that they have to be responsible and answerable for their own life actions, as self-accountability is the base of empowerment.

9. They don’t need constant assurance from others

Successful and confident people recognize the value of self-belief to achieve success and they possess enduring self-belief. They feel well-meaning of success, pleasure and prosperity.

10. They don’t require permission to act

Truly confident people take actions without any reluctance. Each day, they remind themselves, “If not me, then who?” As they trust themselves, they feel comfortable being in charge of what they think, do and give. They do ask for assistance and guidance, but at the end they trust their insight as they know it will never let them down.

How to Use Travel Time Effectively

How to Use Travel Time Effectively

Most of us associate travel and time with what we’re going to do one we get to our destination. Planning and mapping out what to do once you arrive can certainly make for a more pleasurable vacation, but there are things you can do while you are on your way that can make it even better.

Sure, you can plan for the things you’re going to do on your vacation while you are travelling en route – but what about making use of that time for other things that you don’t usually do when you’re at home? You don’t need to have your gadgets with you to do it, and you can really connect with yourself if you take the time to manage your life while heading towards your vacation destination.

Here are some great tips to help you with your time management while you travel, some of which are more conventional than others. Nonetheless, you can find out what works best for you and apply them accordingly depending on when and how you are travelling.

1. Take Your Time Getting There

As I write this, I’m on a flight to San Francisco. Flying is the fastest way to get from place to place, and for many people it’s really the only way to travel.

But I’ve often taken the train or ferry on trips so that I have extra time without distraction to get more done. I’m not worrying about navigation or lack of space to do what I want to do. Instead I’m able to focus on getting stuff done during the time I’ve got without feeling rushed. For example, when I took the train from Vancouver to Portland, it was an eight hour trip and I managed to get a ton of writing done and closed a lot of open loops. It also was less expensive than flying, which was a bonus.

Sometimes taking the long way to get somewhere on vacation can be the best thing for you to get somewhere with your life.

2. Go Gadget-Free

This is going to be a tough one for a lot of you. But why do you need to bring your gadgets with you when you go on vacation? It isn’t be a bad idea to leave all but one of them behind, and only pull out that one when you absolutely need to do so. In some countries, you’d be wise to be discreet with them anyway since flaunting them in front of those that are less fortunate than you isn’t a good practice. While it may not seem like flaunting to you, in different cultures it can definitely come across that way.

If you can’t go gadget-free, then at least go Internet-free. If you use a task management app that requires syncing across your multiple devices to be effective, remember that if you only have the one device with you then it can be the “master device” for the time being and will store your data locally anyway. Just sync up when you get home.

3. Reflect and Prepare

Finally, going on any sort of excursion gives you the perfect opportunity to reflect on where you’ve been. The fact you have removed yourself from where you usually are can give you a perspective that you simply can’t get when you’re at home. You may want to journal your thoughts during this time – and by taking more time to get to your destination you’ll have more time to dig deeper into it.

After a period of reflection – however long that happens to be – you can then begin to not only prepare for the rest of your travels, you can prepare for the rest of what happens afterward. The reflection period is important, though. You need to really know where you’ve been in order to properly look at where you want to be. Time away from things gives you that chance.

Conclusion

Traveling isn’t always about where you’re going and how quickly you can get there. In fact, it’s rarely about that at all.

More often it’s where you’re at in your head that will dictate how much you benefit from traveling. So don’t just go somewhere fast. Instead, take your time on the way there and take the time to connect with not only where you are but who are while you’re there.

If you do that, you’ll have a better chance to be who you want to be when you leave.
