As I sit here in the Toronto Pierson Airport on our way to British Columbia, I’m people watching while sipping a Tim Horton’s coffee and thinking about confidence.
As all of these people of many different cultures walk by, I wonder?
Who has confidence?
Who feels safe within themselves?
Who feels self-assured because of their abilities and qualities?
Who embraces their humanity with all their mistakes, failings, successes and triumphs?
Who feels confident with humility?
Who feels confident but thinks it feels cocky?
Who feels confident when relaxed and grounded but insecure when stressed and tired?
Who feel confident only when they’re engaged in an activity they excel in?
Who is faking it until they make it with a strong, assured posture but full of self-doubt in the meantime?
Who feels good enough …..and just that…. enough?
Just a thought…
