Chapter 1, Page 15, Book 19

Experience tells you what to do; confidence allows you to do it.

Stan Smith

January 15- on being confident

Confidence is contagious.  So is lack of confidence.

Vince Lombardi

Confidence is all about being positive concerning what you can do and not worrying over what you cannot do.  A confident person is open to learning because they are eager to discover that comes next.  They know that every new unknown is a chance to learn more.

We can be confident, we can give confidence and we can seek confidence.  With it we can face any situation know we can handle it.  Without it we are destined to suffer. Confidence  is a feeling of trust and firm belief in ourselves or others.  It’s an attitude that lets individuals have a positive, yet realistic view of themselves and their situations. 

I consider myself a confident person because I believe that with the good Lord’s help anything is possible, if I’m willing to trust and believe.  I’ve had my confidence shaken a time or two but it’s always come back.  When you know who you are and believe in what you do, confidence is a way of life.

A man cannot be comfortable without his own approval.

Mark Twain

Even at my 'advanced age' (LOL), I'm becoming more at home in my own skin. You're right. Confidence feels so good! Sure, there were periods in my 30's and 40's where I felt unstoppable … but they were fleeting, dependent on the regard of others.

I've had some recent problems at work over quality issues which made me lose my confidence in my ability to do a job I've done for over 40 years, but slowly but surely I'm building back up that confidence by being super careful with each report generated. Hopefully I'll be back up to my previous confident level soon.

Well, I have to admit to you hear - that is one problem I do have. Some days I am confident, but I do have some problems holding that feeling permanently!
