5 Traits Of Truly Confident And Successful Men

October 4, 2017

No matter how confident you think you are, you are probably not as confident as you could (or should) be. Let’s fix that, shall we?

True confidence is hard to achieve and therefore it is a pretty a rare trait. People who are truly confident are usually immediately recognizable and their success is almost inevitable. So, if you want to be successful in business, with women, and generally in life, make sure you acquire some (or all) of the following traits.

1. Every Situation Is An Opportunity

You should have learned by now that life is packed with difficult situations and failures. But this mustn’t be a problem for a confident man.

If you lack confidence, you are likely to be daunted when faced with unfamiliar and difficult tasks or problems. But these situations are here to help you grow.

The secret to becoming confident and successful lies in your ability and willingness to face new challenges. Every setback is an opportunity to learn and grow on a both professional AND personal level.

2. Instincts Are There To Be Trusted

Any man who seeks to become truly confident must learn to trust his own instincts. Trusting your gut is what separates a true leader from a semi-successful person.

However, never mistake being impulsive for being instinctual! Thinking things through is crucial.

3. Taking Risks

Playing it safe is, well safe, but it won’t get you far. One must attempt to reach their dreams by any means necessary, which often means excluding the safest route.

Accomplish your goals will almost always require taking certain risks and struggling on oh so many levels, but a man who is truly confident will continue on his path to success no matter what.

4. Know What You Want And Focus On It

In the words of the great Ron Swanson: Never half-ass two things, whole-ass one thing!

Although this may sound like an easy thing to do, sadly many ambitious men don’t even know for sure what they want to be doing in life. And even when they find that one thing, they don’t focus on it completely.

Confident men choose their own paths and focus on it without wasting time trying to please others.

Confidence is key when it comes to focusing on what you want. It circles back to mentality; you have to believe that you are capable of getting what you want. The law of attraction is real, you attract your dreams by believing they’re possible,” says Andrew O’Brien, the founder of the PR firm The Publicity Guy.

5. Learn From Your Mistakes

Never be afraid of your mistakes and failure. Confident men embrace their mistakes and see them just as valuable as their triumphs.
