Self ConfidenceIntroductionSelf confidence is a positive outlook towards life where a person lives on the basis of self assurance taking the entire responsibility of whatever happens to the individual in course of life. The self confident person is usually a problem solver who has a solution to every problem and a positive answer to every question rather than presenting excuses. A self confident person happens to shares thefruits of success with others but never blames someone else for the failure. Every failure seems to be anew beginning to him/her to try a different mode of action in order to change the failure into a success.Definition of terms The term self-confidence is in itself self explanatory and it is an individual’s faith in own capacity, skill, judgement and decision while facing the challenges of life and also how the person handles the hurdles faced in day to day activity. It brings immense self satisfaction and mental peace as the personencounter the obstacles on the basis of self faith and overcomes it to achieve the goal and fulfil the dream or desire. Hence, self confidence can be equated with self efficacy as it puts significance on thefuture performance of the individual already focussing on the prior performances as well. Yet, there isa slight difference between the two terms which means that self efficacy is applicable in case of a fixed or specific task while self confidence is a broader outlook considering the overall personality of the individual.Evaluation of appropriate theoryApplying Vealey’s( 2001) model of sports confidence as the basis of the concept, fourteen(14) athletes were interviewed among whom 7 were male and 7 were female to reach to the judgement of the research. It was found that athletes with higher levels of self confidence displayed better performance and positive development was noticed in their behaviour, thoughts and feelings altogether. Although each of them had their different debilitating factors as well as each of them had different sources which provided them with the self confidence and sometimes it also contained the gender factor. Addressing the questionIt is a fact that self-confidence has been shown to be an important discriminating factor between successful and less successful performances in sport. The part played by self-confidence according to cognitive, behavioural and affective responses that it evokes and judging these factors that are responsible for weakening or curbing the confident within the organizational subculture of international sports.Use of literatureApplying Vealey’s( 2001) model of sports confidence as the basis of the concept, fourteen(14) athletes were interviewed among whom 7 were male and 7 were female to reach to the judgement of the research.Conclusion
