We all have confidence to varying degrees, some individuals more than others. The over confident person tends to display their bravado in many ways. For example, the over enthusiastic car salesperson. They will work you until you simply give up. They know this from experience and while they are making the sale they are probably thinking about what they will spend their commission on. There are individuals who appear to be very confident but, in fact, it is a false bravado. They are really afraid, don’t believe in themselves, scared of taking a chance, moving to a new city, applying for a new job and more. When we were in school the students who were pretentious, they were the same kids who were the bullies. They would push others around to trying to bolster their confidence and make it appear they were outstanding and could not be touched. Some of their buddies were afraid so they stayed with him or her for protection. This is also true of parental abuse of children and domestic violence. Those individuals need their victims to clearly understand that they have the power and control. This also applies to the individuals who hurt people emotionally. They go out of their way to destroy them but they do not always win. Believing in yourself is very important even if you think you are a loser. All individuals need to focus everyday on their success as a person and as an income earner. The more you tell yourself you are a loser and a failure they worse your life will become.
