It's Easier to Feel Self-Confident When You are In a Positive State of Mind

Your state of mind impacts your self-confidence. When you are feeling joyful or happy, you are more optimistic and feel better about yourself. In a good state of mind, your self-confidence will rise.

Make it a habit to be more grateful and more appreciative of all the gifts the Creator has bestowed upon you in the past and continues bestowing in the present.

While one does not need to be happy to experience self-confidence, it helps. It's so much easier for a master of happiness and joy to be self-confident. Every moment of happiness and joy is added to your mental library. You are always in the right time and place to improve yourself.

(Self-confidence, chapter 19 – Artscroll Publications)
