The Small But Mighty Things That Confident Women Do Differently

Have you heard of the confidence gap? it's the idea that men generally have a positive outlook on life because of their assumed skills and job prospects. Then women have a harder time because they believe they're not good enough for a promotion or as deserving as the men around them.

Confident women have been able to break through the gap. They hold a high estimate of their worth and they're not afraid to show it to the world. So what is it that they do differently that makes them so likable and successful? Here are are the five small things that make a big difference that confident women do.

They Have A Ritual For Low Times

​What makes or breaks a person is how they deal with the tough times. Confident women have it down to a system. When they're feeling low, they don't just cave to it and let it take over their whole demeanor. Instead, they each have their own unique ritual that helps them snap out of it.

Some confident women report having a journal where they read out loud their affirmations and release their anxious thoughts. Others meditate or go for a walk, immersing themselves in nature. They find what works, and they stick with it, even when it's the last thing they want to do. Confident women are also disciplined women.

They Don't Pass Judgement

​Do you know what the easiest way is not to judge others? It's to simply not care. Who cares if someone at work got a promotion even though you've been there longer or your younger sister got married first. Confident women know that they are on their own path to success and the timing that serves them best.

So instead of judging others, which would mean that they're wasting time comparing themselves, they feel genuinely happy for them. Congratulate instead of project hate.

They Know When To Say No

​Confident women know the difference between acts of kindness and people-pleasing. They don't say yes when they know it will drain their energy and let themselves be taken advantage of. A Research study actually found that the more difficulty that you have to say no, the more likely you are to experience stress, burnout, and even depression.

That's why confident people know that saying no is healthy, and they have enough self-esteem not to worry about how the other person might take.

They're Driven By Purpose

Confident women aren't easily taken down because they're driven by something much bigger than other people's criticism and negativity. They're motivated by their purpose, and they're not willing to be distracted with pettiness. There will be people who won't stand to see them succeed and who won't believe in them, criticizing every step along the way.

They know they have two options, either they can let the noise of others tear down their self-esteem and give up, or they can listen to their own voice and keep going till they get what they want.

They Don't Worry About Fitting Into Ideals

Confident women are ahead of the game. They've already cracked the code and understood long ago that society is filled with unrealistic standards so there is no point to try and fit into them. They know that a lot of the ideals and expectations are set out by industries that don't necessarily have women's best interests in mind.

Instead, a confident woman sets her own standards with only the values and expectations that she knows will help her move forward in life.

They love Their Alone Time

​The reality is, the world is full of unnecessary noise. If we spent all of our time surrounded by others or on social media, we're likely to take on all of its baggage and let its insecurities project on us. Instead, confident women know that they need to empty their cup first before it gets filled by the world.

So, they take the time to be alone and completely sign off. During this time they practice whatever elements of self-care best serve their needs, whether it's a candle-lit bath or solo dance party. This allows them to shake off the extra weight that could be weighing down and walk out the door feeling fresh and on top of the world.

Yet, he didn't let life's hardest tests get him down and he always held on to the hope of finding that light, till one day he did.

Life Was Hard From The Very Beginning

Logan's hardships started from the day he was born. For whatever reason, his parents didn't feel fit to raise him, so he was put up for adoption when he was just a toddler. Not all kids get lucky and get adopted when they get put in the system.

Unfortunately for Logan, no family wanted to keep him and he was sent from one foster home to the next until he reached the age of 18. Considered an adult, he aged out of the system and had no choice but to become homeless. All he had ever wanted was a family but instead, he grew up his whole life feeling alone.

A Social Worker Who Cared

Fortunately, all it takes to make a difference in someone's life is finding one person who cares. For Logan, it was his social worker. Once his 11 years in the foster care system were up, Logan's caseworker was determined to find him a good place to live. So far, all his living arrangements had been temporary, and he had never had a place to call home. For a time, Logan even lived in his car.

Looking carefully through his files, they discovered that Logan actually had a biological sister named Shyann who was already living with a good family. The caseworker hoped and prayed that the family would also take an interest in Logan, so she called up Shyan's adoptive mother.

Logan Was Deemed To Be "Toxic"

The caseworker was hoping Robert and Ara Hunt, Shyanna's parents would welcome Logan but that wasn't the case. The family already had 3 adopted children and they were afraid that Logan would disrupt the dynamic that they had created for their family.

Logan's sister was 12 years old at the time and the family was afraid that her biological homeless brother, who was living in a car, would be toxic to their family. In an interview, tey explained: : “We wanted nothing to do with him. We didn’t know anything about him. We were afraid.”

A Television Segment That Reflected The Truth

You wouldn't think that television is where you'd find the truth and have your whole perspective changed but that was the case for Logan.

The Hunt family saw a local television segment about Logan's journey out of foster cre and it completely changed their mind on the young man. That piece changed the father Robert Hunt’s mind about the 18-year-old. The father said in an interview: “I was just knocked down. I think I’m a pretty good judge of character, and I saw the good character in him."

From Tragedy To Blessings

Up until then, Logan had known nothing but rejection. He told USA Today how the constant rejection that his life made him feel “empty” and “alone," and he felt as though he had “nothing to look forward to.”

Right when Logan thought his life couldn't get worse, he got into a car accident. Yet, he had no idea that this tragedy would turn into a blessing too. Ara went to go visit him in the hospital, and she ended up bringing him home with her. He had no idea another miracle would be waiting for him at her home.

Logan went back to meet his sister and her newfound family thinking the reunion itself would be his miracle while he recovered from the accident. He believed his stay with the family would be temporary just like all his past ones.

As he bonded with the family, Logan fit right in. It didn't take long before the Hunt family performed a second miracle and decided to start the process of adopting Logan! It was finally Logan's chance to reach the light of the end of the tunnel and become part of a family just like he always wanted.

New Beginnings

Logan's life at almost 20 years old was just starting. After 13 years of temporary living arrangements, he finally found his forever home. It turns out that hope and patience were all he needed and the universe had a plan for him all along.
