Beyond Positivity: The Deeper Layers of Self-Confidence

Beyond Positivity: The Deeper Layers of Self-Confidence

In our last blog, we discussed the power of a positive mindset. I mentioned that it is only the baseline for building your self-confidence. I want my clients to know that self-confidence is more than feeling good about outward appearance. To have a positive mindset, you must recondition your thought processes because our brain’s default is negative and leans towards reflecting on the worst possible scenarios.

I hope you took some time to review those 8 benefits and how they begin the transformational process.  I coach on the deeper layers of self-confidence so you understand how you communicate and take action to fulfill your purpose without procrastinating. 

The Foundation of Positivity: Positivity about oneself is undoubtedly a crucial aspect of self-confidence. It involves recognizing your strengths, accepting your non-strengths, and maintaining a constructive self-image. This foundation of self-assuredness sets the stage for more profound self-confidence. However, it’s not the whole picture. Here are four other areas you need to be aware of to change your mindset so you can overcome self-doubt and conquer procrastination: 


Self-confidence is also closely tied to self-efficacy, the belief in your ability to achieve specific goals or tasks. It’s not merely about feeling good about who you are but having faith in your ability to accomplish your goals. Self-efficacious individuals think positively about themselves but take actionable steps toward their goals.


Self-confidence involves resilience, the ability to bounce back from setbacks and failures. A genuinely self-confident person doesn’t let occasional disappointments or criticisms shatter their confidence. As a resilient woman, you can overcome rejection and abandonment with confidence and a therapeutic coach. I will help you view challenges as opportunities for growth and learning. This inner strength that can be developed over time and resilience are integral components of self-confidence.


Genuine self-confidence is rooted in self-awareness. It’s about understanding your values, your passions, and your purpose. This more profound understanding of yourself guides your decisions and actions, allowing you to pursue paths aligned with your authentic self. Such alignment with your true self breeds a deep self-confidence beyond surface-level positivity.


Competence plays a crucial role in self-confidence. It’s not enough to feel good about yourself; you must also acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed. I help my clients learn how to challenge themselves to categorize tasks so they do not procrastinate, significantly delaying purpose. 

Another facet of self-confidence is how you interact with others. Empathy and strong interpersonal skills, such as emotional intelligence, can boost your confidence in social and professional settings.

 While feeling good about oneself is essential, true self-confidence encompasses self-efficacy, resilience, self-awareness, competence, and practical interpersonal skills. Developing these aspects can lead to a more profound, more resilient self-confidence that empowers you to pursue your goals and navigate life’s challenges with grace and strength. So, the next time you think about self-confidence, remember that it’s not just about feeling good; it’s about being capable, resilient, self-aware, and empathetic. It’s about living the life you love and using your voice to reach your desired success!

Are you ready to stop hiding, embrace your uniqueness, and step out into great purpose?
