Why It's Important
There are two kinds of people in the world: "go-getters" and "getters".
Go-getters tell getters to get something, and the getters get it for them! Which one are you?
If you find yourself in the position of "getter" - and you're uncomfortable with that - something is preventing you from gaining the confidence that go-getters seemingly exude.
When seeing what others have done, how many times do you think to yourself, "I wish I could do that." How many times do you take that thought further and ask, "What separates me from that guy who's doing what I wish I could do?"
Chances are you stop at the first thought and chalk up your inaction to a lack of confidence.
Gaining Confidence Doesn't Have to Be Hard!
Admitting a lack of confidence is a healthy step toward correcting the situation, but it certainly shouldn't be a stopping point!
You should never let a small handicap (which can be fixed) prevent you from perusing your dreams, because in doing so, you don't reach your full potential.
Reaching your full potential is not always the direct result of gaining confidence, but without it, you're only utilizing 1/2 or 3/4 or 5/6 of your true self. And that's just no way to enjoy life.
A healthy, happy individual enjoys life by experimenting with new things, ideas, and activities. A healthy, happy individual wants to learn more and more, and he wants to take advantage of many opportunities that bring excitement and new thrills.
These things require gaining confidence.
An unhappy person on the other hand, doesn't seek out new opportunities or thrills and is basically stuck between a rock and a hard place: a desire to try new things and a lack of confidence to do so.
If you don't want to be in the same position, it's important that you work on gaining the confidence that put you in the position of a happy, health individual instead.
