Confidence (noun) – belief in oneself and one’s powers and abilities.

Can I make you have confidence in yourself?  No.

Can I give you confidence in yourself? No.

I can have confidence in you (i.e., full trust; belief in the powers, trustworthiness, or reliability of a person or thing), but even that won’t necessarily dictate that you have confidence in yourself.

When it comes to self-confidence, you really are on your own.

What does that mean?

It means you can stop waiting for your bosses next praise because you know you can rely on yourself without anyone having to remind you.

It means you can set higher goals for yourself, your team, and your changes because you know from deep within that you are capable of reaching your goal and learning so much along the journey.

It means you can free others from waiting for you to have confidence in them before they will have confidence in themselves.  Remind them that self-confidence is self generated and self sustained.  So they are free to be confident too.

Do you believe in yourself, in your powers and in your abilities?

If not, why not?

What are going to do this week so you can start to believe?
