One of the greatest challenges we face in our lifetimes is becoming comfortable in our own skin.A person who is secure with himself is much more likely to achieve success, have meaningful relationships, and be respected by others.As children, we get our emotional energy from our parents; just like we get food, water, and shelter.
Since most people are insecure, a person who is secure has power and influence over others; even if they are not otherwise powerful. It often comes with age and wisdom (although some people never find it).
Coming to terms with who you are is the first step in obtaining happiness in life. There have only been a handful of people throughout history who have obtained this level of confidence, and most of them have gone on to be great spiritual leaders. Those who work on themselves and gain confidence early on will have a much easier time navigating the challenges of life.
The sooner you realize that happiness is something that you from people or posessions; the sooner you will be able to create your own destiny. Even though none of us are perfect; it’s easy to spot those of us who are overly insecure.
Extreme insecurity is usually marked by an obsession with gaining the approval of other people.
This level of self-doubt is extremely destructive to a person’s life and is often the root of almost all their problems.
