Having confidence gives you the ability to take on the world.

If you want to maintain a level of success, you need to make sure you portray confidence. Pull out traits from your arsenal such as tenacity, faith, and determination to make sure that you appear confident to others. Avoid these seven traits to consistently display confidence.

1. Second guessing

If you want to appear confident, stick and stay with any decision you make.

2. Compromising priorities

If something is important to you, you will continue to fight for it and not let other people talk you out of it.

3. Refusing to learn new skills

Take a leap of faith and get out of your comfort zone.

4. Focusing on external validation

Confident people know that the work they do is great, and they aren’t seeking to just please people.

5. Worrying about what competitors are doing

If you are confident, you’ll stand behind what you are doing rather than worrying about what others might say or be doing themselves.

6. Avoiding public speaking and networking

If you are confident, you have faith that you will portray and represent yourself well to others.

7. Being ignorant of current trends

Confident people are keenly aware of what’s going on and how they fit into the modern, changing world.
