The Confidence Code Quotes

-To be truly confident, we must rid our minds of persisting doubts. Confidence can be displayed by a pure mind free of doubts.
-Women have the tendency to think too much and more than often think the wrong things. Thus brains often act as inhibitors in the case of women.
-Overthinking leads to a lack of decisiveness. It clouds our judgemental capabilities, which can prove dangerous in the long run.
-Women think differently than males. They pay attention to minor details that males tend to ignore normally.
-Women have a different level of self-awareness that makes them more aware of things happening around them, which becomes a part of their cognitive stew.
-This habit of constantly maintaining increased vigilance or self-awareness leads to more ruminating, which will prove to be unhealthy in the long run.
-The habit of ruminating, if not eliminated early, will lead to developing negative thoughts and sometimes imagination of nightmarish scenarios.
-Negative thoughts and nightmares force our brain to develop a self-defense mechanism that only alleviates the problem for a short time.
-Continuous ruminating leads to an endless loop of negative thoughts, nightmarish imaginations, and mental self-defense.
-The continuous loop ultimately forces us to stop thinking and give in to our instincts.
-Solely trusting our instincts impairs our judgemental capabilities. It destroys any sort of spontaneity in our lives.
-A woman is considered strong when she has the ability to conquer or at least face all the psychological impairments she has.

-A lot of men acquire certain traits they desire by faking them for an extended period. But the changes they acquire are far from what they actually desire.
-We should always stay true to ourselves. We can lie and pretend to the world but deceiving oneself is the worst kind of torture you can go through.

-Pretense may temporarily bring comfort, but it will certainly damage our mental health.
-Pretense will make us insecure. The fear of ultimately the world knowing who we truly are and the unwillingness to accept ourselves.
-Pretense will slowly make us anxious and desperate. Over time we will know that we are not someone we pretend to be, making us cling to the pretense even more.
-Faking personalities is us destroying ourselves. Prolong this act, and the next thing we know, we have become cowards with the inability to act when required.
-Being ourselves is a natural way of showing confidence. It proves we have owned our shortcomings and thus sealed any weakness we have.
-We may face harsh opposition initially, but at least it will erase our fear of others and, most importantly ourselves.
-Do one brave thing, and the next thing you know, you have loads of confidence to act whenever you desire.
– Fake it till you make it may sound catchier but trust me, it is like cancer that will destroy your mental fortitude inside out.
-Every human has a dream. The power of imagination is perhaps the greatest gift we have. It is what distinguishes us from every other life form out there. But to act on the dream or imagination is an entirely different ball game.
