When you think about confidence, what comes to mind? For many people, it will be an image of someone speaking in front of a large crowd, a performer on stage or the ‘cool kid’ at the office or in a friend group. But confidence isn’t just these things. Sure, speaking in front of large groups and performing on stage requires confidence, but confidence can also be much more subtle. Real confidence means feeling secure in yourself and your abilities. Confidence isn't about feeling better than others. It's a quiet inner knowledge that you are capable.
