Can money make you confident

By M.Farouk Radwan, MSc.

What is self confidence?

Can money make a person more confident?
And why do some rich people feel very confident?

In order to answer those questions we first need to examine the way self confidence works. If you grew in a community that made you believe that tall men are more attractive to women than short men then probably you will feel more confident if you were a tall man.

Now here is the interesting part. If you were raised in an isolated tribe that taught you that short men are better than tall men then you will have less confidence if you were a tall man.

In other words when it comes to being confident or not all what matters is your perception. In the Ultimate guide to becoming confident i said that your perception is one of the extremely important factors in determine how confident you are.

But the important question is, what determines this perception?
In a previous article with the title Why do people see the world differently (perception psychology) i said that each person sees the world differently based on many factors including his beliefs and the way he was raised.

In other words having different beliefs about some things can result in a totally different level of self confidence.

If you understood the previous part then probably you will be able to answer this question on your own. The simple answer is : it depends on your beliefs. If you were raised to believe that money makes a person more worthy then certainly you will feel more confident if you had more money.

But there is an important question that you must ask yourself. How can a person develop different beliefs about something such as money where as the whole world has been broadcasting the same idea about it?

In other words almost each and every person in the world believes that money is extremely important as a result of the day to day mind programming they get subjected to. See programming the mind.

The fact that the world has became like a small village made it much easier for universal beliefs to spread about certain things. This is why the majority of people right now believe that money makes a person more worthy and as a result they will feel more confident if they were able to get lots of money.

Why money will fail you in some cases

When i talked about self confidence in my articles i made it clear that self confidence is divided into areas. For example you can be confident in your ability to do a certain task but you can still lack confidence while doing another task.

A very rich man might feel very confident giving business advice to friends but he might still lack confidence during a public speech if he doesn't have proper communication skills. See Why self confidence levels vary from a task to another

Of course the different areas of self confidence meet at certain points but still during a certain situation what will determine a person's confidence is his level of confidence in handling this area.

This is why a person with lots of money can still lack confidence in some situations.

What can you do about it

This is a tricky question. If you believe that money is important then you only have two options in order to become confident. The first is to change your beliefs about money and the second is to try to make money.

In the end what will determine your level of confidence is your beliefs and how you see the world. In other words you don't have to be a slave to the beliefs of others as long as you find other beliefs more rational.
