Definition Essay

Most of life's situations are learning experiences. People can learn what activities are right or wrong for them by experiencing these emotions in different situations. These learning experiences can take place at home, school, the office or anywhere else. The experiences that have given me confidence in my ability to learn takes place at the activities I do daily. Confidence has helped me perform better at school as well. I believe that a person who gains confidence will succeed more in life than a person who does not. Because confidence is believing that you can succeed and as long as you believe that you can do it. You can. Although it is true that confidence is in each and everyone of us, some people disagree because of their lack of trust in themselves.


the meaning of confidence dates back from Rome in the 15th century, stems from the latin words confidentia and confidentem. At that time it meant " firmly trusting, bold". The definition of confidence has changed since then, websters dictionary defines confidence as " a feeling or belief that you can do something well"; a belief that someone or something is good or has the ability to succeed at something". Obviously this meaning is accurate and understandable but there are other meanings people give to explain what real confidence for them is, like this one quote I read on google says that " confidence is appreciating how awesome you are". Just like confidence, self confidence is esssential to have because having this emotion will boost up your self esteem. Because once your confident you will realize your self worth and value yourself more.


Though it is good to have confidence some people who gain confidence tend to take it a too far.
As dictated by Melanie moushigian Koulouris, "Be humble in your confidence yet courageous in your character". Meaning never loose your sense of character , as confidence can sometimes over power you and make you look brash and arrogant.


Every one needs confidence, because real confidence comes from you and no one else. No one can make you have confidence. It is only when you believe in yourself will you realize that you had confidence in you all along. For instance, in the business world, a good business man shows confidence in his meetings and business lunch's by using large gesticulations, projecting his voice and speaking slower. Gaining confidence will also improve your oral communication skills by making you feel sure about your feedback to the sender.
Confidence is like writing a long essay and submitting it to your professor without looking it over or checking for any error. And most of all, confidence is being comfortable with what you're doing.
