The final area of self-awareness is self-confidence, having a strong sense of your own self-worth, and not relying upon others for your valuation of yourself.
People with good self-confidence are:
- Generally decisive, being able to make good decisions grounded in their own values.
- Prepared to voice unpopular opinions, and not always follow the flow of others.
- Generally able to present themselves well, and are often described as charismatic.
Without the ability to “tell it how it really is” when necessary , and to stand up for unpopular positions, it is very hard to achieve anything, especially during tough times.
