“It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.”― Nelson Mandela
Truly confident people don’t need the public glory and limelight to feel good about themselves, they know what they have achieved even when no one gives them the stage or limelight.
Quiet confident people don’t need the validation of others, because true validation comes from within.
So they stand back and celebrate their accomplishments through others. They stand back and let others shine, a confidence boost that helps those people become truly confident, too.
People are turned off by those who are desperate for attention.
Lucas Moloi says “we fail to share a smile when one does well without our help because we want it mentioned that it is because of us that they succeeded.”
Quiet confidence people understand that the true reflection of the human race is the race to be better humans than a race to be the first.
Confident people know that being yourself is much more effective than trying to prove that you are important.
Quiet confident people run their own race, on their lane, at their pace.
People catch on to your attitude quickly and are more attracted to the right attitude than what, or how many people you know.
Confident people are masters of attention diffusion.
When they are being given attention for an accomplishment, they quickly shift the focus to all the people who worked hard to help get them there.
Quiet confident people don’t crave the approval or praise because they draw their self-worth from within.
People who shine from within don’t need the spotlight.
