Volunteering Boosts Confidence

Volunteering boosts confidence. It makes you realise that there are many people out there who can derive real value from what you have to offer.

Volunteering is all about focusing on others. When you volunteer your services or time without anticipation of any benefit you are focusing on others needs.

Volunteering is defined as the practice of people working on behalf of others without being motivated by financial or material gain.

Volunteering teaches you how not to live in a ‘me-centred’ universe.

Volunteering can take many forms. It could be teaching at a local school for underprivileged children. Or it could be just spending time with the aged at old folks home. Volunteering at home, work or in your community can be a good way to bolster self confidence and improve people skills. It develops your planning and organizational skills. It also provides opportunities work in a team and to build your leadership skills. Helping others can help us feel good about ourselves – it boosts our self-confidence and makes us more able to accept new challenges. Success breeds success.
