Often times we hear the phrase “true confidence can only come from within”. We accept this as a meaningless maxim; in other words, we agree to this but many of us do not know what it entails.
We need to establish two definitions: confidence and within. The former serves as a belief that one can successfully accomplish a certain task (paraphrasing Merriam Webster). The latter meaning that the source of said confidence should be self sustaining from ones own self and not from anyone else.
But how does one authentically achieve it? I am going to write up a short series of vignettes in the next few posts all about examples of false vs true confidence. Come back soon!
