The Challenge for Self-Confidence
Self-confidence is NOT about knowing that you can do everything. The truth is, well, you can’t.
Self-confidence is about having the ability to recognize what you are capable of. It’s about having a belief in yourself based on what the evidence suggests.
Often, we conflate ego with self-confidence.
We admire guys like Kanye West. We say things like “Kanye West has lots of ego and he’s successful.” But no, Kanye West is successful because he has talent. And you know what, I feel like he would’ve been even bigger if not for his ego.
So don’t mistake ego with self-confidence.
Self-confidence is better. It does not boast; it does not take pride.
Self-confidence is the foundation of one’s belief in himself/herself.
