Communication is sharing of ideas and information. While many people think of communication primarily in oral or written form, communication is much more. A knowing look or a gentle touch can also communicate a message loud and clear.
Confidence is a word which we frequently use in everyday language, yet rarely do we stop and think what it means. Confidence is about being certain of your own abilities. It is about future. Confidence involves the belief that things will turn out well. Confidence may sometimes be used interchangeably with optimism.
Communication with Confidence
Effective communication skills are an asset in many life situations. They can contribute to a higher level of success in your career, new friends and give you a sense of confidence when faced with a room full of strangers. Confident communicators are self- confident and have good self esteem. They believe they are worth being listened. They like to hear the views and opinions of others.

Acting more confidently begins with thinking more confidently. Brain is a very powerful organ. It sends messages to people through the body language. If you feel that your point of view is worthless, it will be relayed to other people through your body language.

Focusing on action plans are great, as they help both you and the person you are talking with. It helps you remain focused on identifying actions. When the discussion is done, the other person has action items that they can work on, instead of worrying about how to handle the situation.
