How To Be Confident

The fastest route to confidence is to stop being so attached to one’s dignity and seriousness; and plainly admit that one is – of course – an idiot. We all are. If you like our films, take a look at our shop (we ship worldwide): https://goo.gl/MFnpKd

“The topic of confidence is too often neglected by serious people: we spend so much time acquiring technical skills, so little time practising the one virtue that will make those skills effective in the world...”

You're only what life allows you to be. You don't get to choose whether you're confident or reserved. You can fool yourself for a while but reality will always come back to hit you in the face.

This is what is so refreshing about most Seniors. They have given up being so one dimensional and egotistical. No wonder ageism exists as those elders might teach us to relax and realize life is very short. What a dangerous concept. Wisdom might just mean having a good time and not caring too much about what others think or waste their time focusing one.

sometimes, when I'm trying something new, and I'm not sure about it, I stand in front of the mirror and insult myself with all the words and aspects I can think of. I do this, and when someone does insult me, it doesn't hurt, or surprise me, because I've heard it before, and I can joke about it.

It's nice to know that I can stop looking for the point in my life where I'll stop messing up, doing embarrassing things and, generally being awkward. I used to frequently joke with my sister, asking if The Queen has actually farted in front of people, or ever peed herself as a three year old. I always look back at my younger self with disdain, grateful that I'm nowhere near THAT anymore- but I'll never be smarter, or kinder, I'll just have gone through more I guess. Just because I'm an eternal meathead doesn't mean I will never accomplish anything

There is some logic in this video, but I don't entirely agree with it. I have my own ideas when it comes to confidence and you can find it in my channel. Plus just because we make mistakes does not make us dumb. It means were human. There is a differents.

Superficially this seems like good philosophical advice, but it may also serve as direction to romanticise failure and to celebrate mediocrity. While too much attachment to anything is bad, ignoring the fundamental importance of constructs like dignity and the self-restrain they beget in us as social beings is dangerous. We can even get into how opposite to the understanding of what it takes to be successful in fields of high-performance this is. I may have more to say on this issue.

The animation in this video straight-up blew me away. Great advice too.

Calling yourself a muttonhead is all fair and good if it's in a loving "oh, silly me!" kind of way. Otherwise, it's self-depreciating and with have the exact opposite effect than bringing you confidence.

Автор Michelle Li ( назад)
It's so weird how he is calling everyone imbeciles but his accent (aside from the message) makes it not offensive at all. Btw loved the animations and the great quality of the videos <3

Remember! No matter what you do or say , you'll be judged either way! So just shine and be youself and let the haters hate as that will make you stronger, knowing they are intimidated by you will make you realise you are YOU- a beautiful person- and they look up to you so they judge so they can be on top again! Be you and you'll never fail!

One or two more acts of folly shouldn't matter too much... But they do. This episode would be more helpful if it acknowledged that our errors can be ruinous, especially when the rest of the world demands perfection and punishes people for their errors.

All the self help books out there suggest the opposite, which makes gaining confidence even more out of reach.

That's it i know the answer is its ok to look like i fool but I didn't realize it, I always feel scared or afraid to go to strange office in some government building i want someone to tell specifically how and what and when to go there and ask beforehand, but now i will try it I'll go and do thing and ask we all stupid and we all look idiots no matter how good we hold ourself, some time we have the answer buy we need a little push

What of those of us who find parting with our dignity impossible? I swear, you never say anything of value in anything I've watched so far.

Автор Stefan Nincetovic ( назад)

..and I am a fucking imbecile myself ^.^

Faults, mistakes, errors, and all other "wrong" actions are actually the perfect imperfections that make us human, and help us grow and prosper, every day, in every way, throughout whole life.

Every single one of us is a nitwit,
and every nitwit is special and amazing in his own way.

..what kind of a nitwit are you? 😃

Автор Nousenesp ( назад)
I was an unconfident person and so shy, i was taking attention to other "cool" persons and all have their strange things and moments of ridiculous. It is in our hands to change that moments of shame in funny moments. Our attitude can change the way which others see us.

I know is difficult, but keep going and making things out of your confort zone where you can lose your "dignity"

Thanks to the video i will try to kiss a person when i feel that it could matters
