Self-confidence is strongly connected to self-esteem. We could say that self-esteem is the basic inner part and self-confidence is the outgoing active part.
There could be an inner dialog between self-esteem, self-confidence and you: Your self-esteem tells you: you’d really like to develop your talent, it makes you happy working with your talent, Your self-confidence answers: yes, you can trust yourself, indeed you’re capable of doing it, so what are you waiting for?
With such a strong self-esteem you know about your abilities. You don’t just believe that you can do it, you know that you can do it well.
Having this kind of self-esteem your self-confidence can grow and pushes you toward living and expressing your talents.
You can trust yourself and your abilities. This is the message of the connection between self-esteem and self-confidence.
