Self-confident people trust in themselves; they trust in their abilities, their own qualities, and above all their own judgment in their decisions. This is vital in autonomous and independent work, and especially in management roles, as confidence can enable leaders to influence others and behave more responsibly.

They do not depend on other peoples views of them to determine their own self-worth. They believe in their own social and personal standing, which is often influenced by external factors like upbringing, work environment, and levels of education and dedication towards a purpose.

Self-confidence gives a person confidence in their ability to succeed, and self-reliance to make things happen. However, one can have confidence in a specific task or situation and lack confidence in another, i.e. abilities as an expert in a field vs. skills in communication. Confidence can also give someone energy and positivity, leading to better work and better relationships.

Envision yourself as you wish to be and then build one habit that fulfills that vision, whether physical, mental or emotional, i.e. take up running., learn a language, meditate. Do one thing that scares you a day to build resilience and self-confidence when you accomplish that thing. Quiet the inner critic, question if you would speak that way to someone you love and eliminate that inner dialogue. Helping someone else can make you feel better about yourself, so consider volunteering.
