Developing Self-ConfidenceSelf-Confidence2

Pure self-confidence is a state of mind that can be cultivated. It’s not based on external achievements or fleeting accomplishments. Real self-confidence is based on our inner ability to find satisfaction and purpose in any situation, and to bring benefit to others.
