A Thought to Boost Confidence

Imagine if instead of reminding yourself of a confidence deficit, you remembered that virtually everyone else is feeling the same way.

Confidence is perishable.  The day after a promotion and raise, it’s fresh.  After being laid off or furloughed, it’s stale and in need of freshening.  Every day is not a greatest day for others either.  Yet we tend to think of any lack of confidence as exclusive to us.  Once we refocus on the fragile nature of confidence and how almost everyone is impacted by it, we can get on with a solution – be the fine person you are, it is not only good enough but even the reminder makes you better.
