Hello beautiful people. I’m delighted to be here in front of distinguished teachers and students. Today’s speech will be on Confidence.
Confidence is having faith in someone or yourself. When you have faith in someone, it means you trust the person to deliver or you have faith in the person to do what he/she is supposed to do.
Components of confidence are Faith, Belief, Trust, Self-confidence, Over-confidence, Risk-taking.
Self-Confidence is having trust in yourself and believing you have what it takes to handle any situation that comes before you. You are up to the task and have no fear or self-doubt. When self-confidence encounters ego, it becomes Over-confidence and the virtue becomes a vice. A confident person will take risks without fear as he is pumped up with adrenaline and feels he can do anything.
A person without confidence will have difficult playing sports like cricket, or a highly confidence based sport like football. For example, if a footballer, especially a striker, doesn’t perform well in consecutive matches, he/she will get low on confidence and therefore, fail to play well for some time. But when he eventually begins to play well, he gains back his confidence and becomes almost unstoppable, this proves that Confidence boosts Performance.
Confidence can be triggered by the use of motivation and incentives to improve productivity. A motivation or an incentive could be a reward for anybody that does a particular task, and this reward will energize people to perform that task. This incentive could be in the form of money or power etc.
Thank you for listening attentively to my speech. I hope you enjoyed it and I hope to see you another time.
