I am Dr. Vikas Khanna, Psychologist. Today I will talk briefly about which every individual face i.e. lack confidence. A lot of people come and say that they lack confidence. Most of them are very competent, skilled and they are doing good in the profession or the studies. Why do they face lack confidence? We all have our set of confidence, skills, positives, and negatives. Since no one is perfect, we have our own set of assets. Something which you are not good at the outcome would be lack of confidence. So, if I focus on how good I am technical, I would be a very underconfident person. Since I am focused, what I am good at, I am a confident person. It is like fishes are made to climb a tree, they would not be confident. So, it is very important for all of us to know 2 things, we all have our set of skills, assets, and quality in which we are not very good. And that is how it would be. There is no one who is perfect. And it is very essential to focus on what you are good at. It would be a very good exercise if you write down on a piece of paper.
What you are good at and your past achievements. At times, there are some unfavorable outcomes in your career, academics and that pushes you down but that is just a phase. You have to recall in the past. You have to see what you have done in your life to get back that confidence. Lastly, it is very important to subconsciously program yourself be associated with what you are good at, what achievements you have made in the past and you have to understand that there would be ups and down. So, down is just a phase and it does not mean that you have become someone who is not capable and competent. It is just a phase and you will spring back.
