D. Answer the Following Questions:

What is the importance of experience in building self-confidence?

Gaining experience requires you to take the first step no matter how hard it may seem, and then keep practising. Each incident of success will take your self-confidence a step further. You will also learn to overcome obstacles and handle failures as you will notice that they are inevitable parts of the process and not the end of the process.

Lack of self-confidence puts one in a vicious cycle. Comment and support your answer with an example.

Self-confidence means having trust in one’s own judgement and ability. A self-confident person shows the willingness and courage to face new challenges and works hard to attain his goals. This success further strengthens his confidence. Whereas, a lack of confidence puts them in vicious cycle, where the fear and unpreparedness prevent them from succeeding, and the failure further reinforces their sense of inadequacy leading to low self-confidence.

What role does parental attitude play in building one’s self-confidence?

The attitude of parents towards their child creates the first significant impact on especially in his initial years of his life. Lack of love and attention, harsh physical and mental punishments, and excessive criticism and derogatory remarks on a child’s mistakes can break his confidence, instil a fear of failure in him, and make him hesitant to take on challenges.

Draw a contrast between attitudes of people with low and high self-confidence.
