How important is confidence? In many ways it is the most important quality we display to others – it’s like the oil in our personal effectiveness engine; if it dries up, so do we and people read that in a second. It can feel like our confidence ebbs and flows almost separate to us.
Have you ever been out with good friends, feeling on top of the world, everything you say feels interesting, people pay attention to you, you feel quick off the mark and generally it all seems rather effortless? Feels great doesn’t it?
On the contrary you probably have had days where someone says or does something unexpected that sends your confidence into a dip, or that bright confident light inside you feels dimmed down or switched off.
