Today, we will continue our series on Confident women. As we all know, women are an integral part of every family. She is responsible for holding the family together. As a confident and secure person, she will be instrumental in raising happy children.
Some of the key things that you need to know for raising a happy family confidently are listed below.
Build on your strengths and work on your weaknesses
Confident women will always face tough situations with boldness and dignity. There are generally two types of people, the first type who will wait for things to happen and the second type who will go out and make things happen.
Women who are naturally bold have to overcome the tendency of pride and aggression in their behaviour, while those who are shy and introvert have to overcome anxiety and timidity. A bold person can be assertive to the point of being rude. It is important to be bold and assertive but never to be rude and disrespectful. On the other hand, a shy person would hold back their valuable opinions due to fear.
It is important to understand your strengths and build on them without going overboard. At the same time, work on your weaknesses and make a conscious effort to improve yourself.
Good Decision makers
Confident women never take advice blindly. They will always get into the details and understand the pros and cons of the situation. They are risk takers and strongly depend on their intuition to take major decisions.
Confident women are not people pleasers and so they will take tough decisions in the better interest of all. They will stand by their decisions and will face any opposition owing to their inner strength.
Avoid worry and anxiety
Worry and anxiety are two of the main deterrents to a happy and peaceful heart. A Confident woman will always try to be positive and look at the brighter side of things in circumstances. This approach will change the existing situation in her favour.
Many people experience stress due to worry and anxiety. They fear for all the “What if” cases in their life. Research says that more than 90% of the “What if” cases never happen.
Learn from your past mistakes
We all make mistakes and it is important to learn from our mistakes. When we learn from these mistakes, we avoid them in the future. Most of us regret our mistakes and keep dwelling on them. It is important to give yourself a second chance. The world lives on hope. It is important to get up when you fail and try again. They keep moving ahead towards your goal with great determination.
A confident woman is a hands-on woman who will get involved in the details. They will never have false egos but will try to get the problem solved. This helps in living a radical life based on truth and not on peer pressure.
They are not afraid to make difficult choices, keeping in mind the long-term favorable impact, in the lives of others.
Failure is just a stepping stone to success
Confident women never get disheartened with failures. In fact, many successful people will vouch for the fact that they have tasted failure and rejection many times, before they actually tasted success. It is important to stay focussed and committed to your dream, no matter how many hurdles you face. The key thing is that they quickly recover and start over again. For eg., Henry Ford was bankrupt three times before he went on to become successful.
Practice makes a man perfect
Practice being a positive person. Develop a positive lifestyle and walk in it. It is just like a new habit you are forming. One needs discipline and constant practice in order to be a positive person.
Practice good things like believing yourself, taking control of your thoughts and avoiding negativity. As you constantly practice and dwell on these good things, you will see the manifestations of all these positive things in your life.
Avoid strife and bitterness
Most of us struggle with strife and bitterness. If people do not agree with your opinion, then you feel rejected and bitter. However, it is important to understand that everyone have a right to have their own opinion. Their opinions may differ with yours but you need to respect them. Remember, nobody will agree with your opinion all the time. So respect people and love them, irrespective of the differences in opinion. This will remove the strife and bitterness and help you lead a healthy life.
These are some of the important things which will help you enhance and lead a confident life. A confident woman will always raise a happy family. She will raise her children to be good adults and empower them to lead a positive life.
