WHY YOU DON'T NEED CONFIDENCE
You've always heard for you to be effective or persuasive in any social interaction, you need confidence. It's not entirely true and I'll make a distinction.
You can't have confidence over anything you haven't experienced.
You can read all the books you want on tight-wire walking, but you won't attempt it on top of 2 buildings 40 stories high because you have no experience/confidence to rely on.
So how do you approach any situation with the attractive aura of confidence?
It's self-confidence that radiates.
Since confidence is what you can rely upon to be true, self-confidence is your ability to appreciate yourself and rely upon the things you know to be true about yourself.
This self-confidence can't be faked, because you know you.
Confidence that's aggrandized is arrogance, and people can smell it a mile away.
Self-confidence, the one that's appropriate (not bolstered) is very attractive.
When you approach any situation and circumstance, recognize you can be completely self-confident you will know what to do when it's needed and when you don't know what to do, you'll gain experience and by definition increase your confidence. - 4 hours ago
