A recent study in Melbourne claims that self-confidence is the key determinant to workplace success. This study interviewed 100 professional staff in New York, Melbourne and Toronto, and discovered that there was a strong co-relation between self-confidence and success at the workplace. It was also noted that participants who were more confident of themselves in their school days fared well in their occupation with higher wages and promotions.

Lead author Dr Reza Hasmath, from the University's School of Social and Political Sciences, said, "The findings imply that we should stress confidence-building activities at an early age. Such activities should be strongly encouraged both in formal schooling and within the family unit." 

Being confident makes you more positive. Keep a journal about positive experiences allowing your brain to relive it. The process releases endorphins and dopamine that boosts your self-esteem and mood. Being positive keeps you in a better frame of mind, enhancing your decision making abilities. Confident people are able to project themselves better and make for impressive personalities.

Confidence building activities should start at an early age, according to researchers. People having high confidence levels demonstrate better social and professional lives, and are much more likely to succeed in life, claim researchers.
