Having no uncertainty in what you can do.
To be Bold.
To be Assured.
To be Prepared.
To be Confident.
All qualities in somewhat you would want to follow.
How does one become truly confident?
Ahhh, and therein lies the question, right?
Because what plagues our society in 2018 is false confidence. Not the opposite of confidence, but it's puffed-up imposter. Whereas confidence has both feet planted on the ground, false confidence has oftentimes checked out of reality.
He that knows not, and knows not that he knows not is a fool. Shun him.
True confidence stems from being self-aware, fully embracing strengths and weaknesses. It is the ability to leverage yourself and others based on evidence. It's looking I don't know in the unblinking eyeball and acting on gaining knowledge.
It speaks volumes with quiet tones.
It's based on indisputable truth.
It's a firm hand on ego's power.
It's head knowledge plus in-the-trenches preparation.
It can be tested against the past.
