And does that feeling made you confident or head strong?

Hi Bala, people tell me I am good at things but I never seem to see it, so really no it doesn't make me more confident or head strong in myself...really I think I have quite a low esteem of myself. Yet it is like I see in others how good they are at different things and they don't see it either...blessings LoLo

I know I am very good at my public relation. I get the feedback from my customers when they repeatedly come to my pub and enjoy my presence with them. I am not bragging but yes, I have this strong magnetic force, a strong charisma that can drive others to my side. Definitely, I feel confident that I can make people comfortable around me.

Hi balasri, i know that i am good at certain things, but other than making me confident it does not make me head strong.It just makes me sure of myself . I think I am a good cook and a good responsible driver, but that does not necessarily mean that I know everything there is to know about cooking and driving. I think our whole life is a learning process and if we put our mind to it ,we may get even better at what we think we are good at today..did I confuse you ??

You have never confused me Kiran.In fact you have used my most famous phrase 'Life is a process of learning' which made me understand your response very clearly.

I am good in a few things and this has made me confident.I am aware of it and sometimes I curb myself from talking too much about it because it may make me headstrong.I would not like to be headstrong[in the opinion of others as well as myself].

Yes, i know I am good at something, in fact at many things and that makes me feel very confident especially when I am doing something that I know I excel in. I do not feel head strong but it can make me stand up to others when i know that I am right. I stick to my principles and i don't think that's being headstrong. it's just being principled. And knowing i excel or do something/s very very well definitely adds to my self confidence and my feelings of self worth.

You have a great attitude which is quite laudable.The confidence always makes you strong while being headstrongcan do the quite opposite.

I am good at getting my husband to cave in and give me whatever I want does that count? it makes me feel good because most people would describe my husband as a heartless hardazz so for me to tame him makes me feel GREAT

Of course it counts Zu.Perhaps your husband has met the perfect match in you.Knowing you I am sure he must be proud to be caved in.

There is nothing wrong with head-strong following confidence, but when being head-strong comes before confidence you have a problem. I am confident when I am good at something, but I am head-strong in my defensiveness when I, or someone I love is being bullied.

I was never an overconfident person. In fact sometimes, I felt the need to be assertive and boastful and to blow my own trumpet. I downplay everything that concerns me and myself. That could be the reason you lost an artist, writer, dancer and you name it..... Just kiddin you..

I guess I don't think about it very much any more. It means more to other people to judge what you can do then it does to you when you are happy with who you are.

I'm certainly more confident going into a situation where I know that I'm good at something. I wouldn't go so far as to say head strong though.

Yes I do know that Im very good at least on one thing.LOL Knowing that Im good at least on one thing makes me feel confident that I can contribute on things that I come across with. Confidence is boosted if Im feeling good about this talent/skill/ability and it not only has helped me but helped others as well.

I am a good person, I have compassion and I am a loving individual. Some people say that I am funny too but I don’t know whether they are just being kind (LOL). I am a very disciplined person and that has paid off for me. My good friends say I have a good personality and I hope they are right! Oh, and I think my writing is not too bad either…Now for my bad points…. OK better leave that for another discussion!

Most of my coworkers tell me that I'm a great communicator and They feel happy everytime they see me because there is so much positive energy everytime I enter the room. They love my smile and according to them is so hard to say no to me because they love my personality.

It makes me confident. I am a good mother, I am a good cook. I am a GREAT dancer. There I said it.. I was a competitive dancer when I was younger, Ballet and Jazz. I won many state and national competitions before I broke my ankle in half. I competed till even in college, but my injury was so bad that I was not able to do all the moves as i liked. I still consider myself a great dancer. I am confident of that.
