Believe it or not, confidence is one of the most important traits to have when it comes to achieving a happy and successful life. Unfortunately, for a lot of us, confidence is a real issue.

A lot of our confidence issues have to do with our inherent need to fit in and blend into the crowd, when that's just not who we are.

Very few people enjoy standing out and being different from others, but why? The simple answer is that dressing or being different attracts a lot of attention from others, both positive and negative, and as humans, we naturally focus in on that negative attention.

As Kandee Johnson explains in this video, we shouldn't have to feel like that. We're not robots that are meant to look and act the same. We're individuals and should feel free to express ourselves regardless of the feedback or attention we receive from others. After all, life is way too short to worry about what other people are thinking of you, it's all about making yourself happy!

So go on, get out there and celebrate being yourself and every little thing that makes you different! After all, it's our differences that make us truly beautiful.
