Confidence and lack of confidence




   Confidence is when you feel you can handle anything the world 
   may throw at you.  You walk sure of yourself, sure of your 
   powers, sure of your ability to deal easily with any problem.  
   Lack of confidence is when you don't feel this way, when you 
   are afraid you may not be able to handle things that may come 
   your way; when you are afraid you will fail and then have to 
   face humiliation and rejection as a consequence.  Confidence is 
   certainty of success and lack of confidence is fear of failure.  

   I can see a person who, as a child, found everything easy and 
   was easily successful in all that he attempted, easily 
   excelling others in everything, growing up to be a very 
   confident person.  And I can see a person who, as a child, 
   found everything that he attempted difficult and hard to do, 
   growing up lacking confidence in himself.  The later was my 
   case.  Everything was hard for me; I had many weaknesses and 
   inabilities.
