Author Bio


There is a great difference between self-confidence and self-reliance. Self-confidence is something you have in yourself. It is a part of your personality. Your elders may consider it to be insolence, arrogance, and even impudence! But self-confidence is the ability of a person to think that he is capable of doing something because he knows he is mentally, physically, spiritually, and emotionally proficient and skilled enough to achieve that particular end or goal.

On the other hand self-reliance means using your own abilities and resources without seeking any assistance from others. Naturally, you will have to have lots of self confidence in yourself, in order to become self-reliant!

A self-reliant person rises in stature, both in his own eyes than in the eyes of the people around him. He commands respect. If you have parents who encourage you from childhood to develop a sense of self-worth, you are going to emerge as a person with a continuous interest in life when you are an adult, be able to face lots of challenges and overcome them and have a passion kindled for success.
