Feelings of low confidence can be corrected with the element of courage being fostered. Though commonly assumed the element of confidence in somehow connected to the feeling of inadequacy this is not always true as other domineering factors can also contribute to the lack of confidence.
One way of developing confidence and courage is to mentally and physically force one’s self to face the situation or person as best as they are capable of.
By doing so the individual is able to practice exercising these elements and eventually with consistent practice the elements of confidence and courage will be better develop and come more easily.
Taking action in any way will help rather than to choose to avoid the situation at hand. The practice of taking action also helps to encourage the individual to mentally and physically prepare for any possible changes that could occur to hamper the individual’s efforts.
Distancing oneself from people who would rather put them down than encourage is also something that should be seriously considered when trying to build these two elements within oneself.
Finding opportunities to exercise these qualities will allow the individual to learn to adopt being confident and courageous instinctively.
Understanding and accepting that it may not always be easy to exercise either of these elements is also one way showing courage.
Courage is not always about action; it may sometimes be better if the strength and will did not to react to something.
