Confidence is belief in your abilities. Its the feeling that you can rise to the occasion when the pressure is on. It not only fuels your ambition but encourages you to set stretch goals. It even has a powerful influence on the results you experience. Confidence is about seeing yourself clearly, appreciating your abilities and having a solid foundation on which to build when presented with challenges. Its shaky confidence that makes you sometimes feel like youre on a roller coaster experiencing highs upon receiving great news and then plummeting a few seconds later back into the valley of insecurity.
