Why is it that having confidence in ourselves and our abilities is so hard? Why do so many of us have the tendency to overestimate others and underestimate ourselves? And, why are we so concerned about what other people think about us?

I believe if we are ever going to be able to answer these questions, we are going to have to do some deep self-evaluation. We need to understand why we think, feel, and act as we do. We need to understand why and how we have become who we are, as well as why we react or respond in certain ways. Once we are able to understand ourselves, then we will be able to accept ourselves. Or, if we don’t like what we understand about ourselves, we will at least be able to make the needed changes in order that we can accept ourselves,

What we believe and accept about ourselves determines our behavior and our performance. These, in turn, create our results and our results affect our confidence levels,

What have you discovered about yourself lately that has affected your confidence level?
