Confidence is something that can help you get far in life. When you are confident, you’ll try new things and easily spot new opportunities. Plus, you’ll be confident enough to take risks (although these risks should always be calculated ones). Unfortunately, as much as confidence is a good thing, many different things in life can lower a man’s confidence and cause him to hold back, reducing his successes and even his happiness. What are these things? Read on to find out. 

Hair Loss 

Men with full heads of hair are often much more confident than those with thinning hair or no hair at all. Hair loss can truly knock a man’s confidence, and although he might still be able to move forward in life, it’s often the case that hair loss will cause someone to become much less confident. This is especially true if the hair loss came on suddenly and/or was unexpected. 

You can do some things in terms of your lifestyle to help, such as ensuring you eat more vitamins and minerals and washing your hair less, for example. However, if you have any problems with hair loss, it is worth considering hair transplants. Speak to an expert about how this can help your self-confidence and what the process is. 

Body Image 

When you think of body image problems, you might equate that with women. After all, this is a well-known issue; women look at airbrushed images in magazines and online, or even at the actresses on TV and in movies, and feel inadequate because they don’t look the same. Even when we know that these images are enhanced and that the actresses have great lighting and expert makeup artists to help them, the feeling is still there. 

In truth, this is a problem that affects men as well. They will also see toned, attractive men advertising products on their screens, and they too will feel inadequate. This can really knock someone’s confidence. To feel better, it’s important to remember that the things we see are not always entirely accurate. This can be hard to remember, but it’s important. As well as this, working out and staying fit and healthy is important and can make everyone feel much better about themselves. 


Have you ever looked around you and wondered how other people seem to be making more money than you? Or how do they seem to understand how to handle the money they have effectively, ensuring they don’t get into debt or run out of cash? If so, you’re not alone; some people seem to have a knack for finances, and others do not. When you have less money, either because you earn less or because you have a lot of debt, this can cause you to have low confidence and other issues in life – lack of money can cause a lot of stress, for example. 

To get past this, there are various things you could do. One is to find a better job or study to get qualifications to help you do this if that’s required. Another is to pay off your debts as fast as you can. Once you are more financially secure, you’ll feel much more confident.
