Lesson 8 : Self-Confidence

Self-confidence is an Axle that touches all others. Without it, you are more likely to fall asleep at the wheel and less likely to take risks; with it, you’ll be able to define your life’s work and have the self-assurance necessary to continually work hard defining a path for yourself. Self-Confidence can be inconsistent – some days it may feel like you can do anything and then the very next day you might feel hopeless, confused, and unsure. While this may be frustrating, this is normal, and is part of the process of taking an active role in building your own self-confidence.

Developing your confidence is a continual process of learning to trust yourself in making decisions that are consistent with who you are. Living a life that is consistent with your core is empowering and will become its own self-fulfilling prophecy; the more steps you take to align your life in the right direction, the more positive thinking will consume you. The real challenge, however, is that often the good feelings of being on your own path lag behind the actual point of action; in other words, feelings of hesitation, self-doubt, and nervousness are often felt before the good feelings, which makes it hard sometimes to take action or envision the outcome of that action.
Sophomores will watch lesson 8 - Self Confidence and also an additional interview and we will discuss self-confidence.
