Need Some Self-Confidence?

Recently I wrote about untangling self-doubt. In that post I discussed self-confidence and indicated self-confidence was –

  • “a feeling of trust in one’s abilities, qualities, and judgement.” ~ Google
  • “confidence in oneself and in one’s powers and abilities.” ~ Merriam-Webster Dictionary
  • confidence in one’s own powers, judgment, etc.” ~ Collins Dictionary.

Another way of looking at self-confidence is outlined in the following audio. In the audio, Pema Chödrön discusses confidence as unconditional friendliness and gentleness to oneself.

As Pema indicates, this can be easy when things are going well, however what happens when life is not going according to your plans or you are seeing negativity in yourself? Do you still have the same confidence?

If not, don’t worry you are not alone…
