If the number of websites dedicated to boosting self confidence is anything to go by, it is one of our deepest desires to have more of it! Relate to that ?
Armed with confidence one feels that just about anything is possible - and without it we may struggle to achieve even the minimum of our huge potential as individuals.
In seeking to live our lives to the max it is only natural to want to relish, savour and enjoy each moment through using our skills, talents and all the other resources available to us. In this way we embrace the thrill of stretching ourselves, enhance our contribution to the world, and feel the joy of our unique legacy.
So, do you have a reasoned confidence in your own ability ?
Are you, right now, feeling up to meeting the myriad challenges of daily life and navigating your career ?
Or are you sitting in the middle lane - fearing change of either pace or direction whilst wanting both ?
Whilst arrogance can be unpleasant and is usually highly off-putting, an ''overdose of modesty'' is just as self limiting - and irritating to those around us.
A balanced view of self provides a solid launch pad from which anyone can start to fulfil their huge potential - and kick start fulfilling their career aspirations.
The value we create for ourselves through our work, whatever its focus, provides a framework for the rest of our living.
I challenge you therefore to decide, right here and now, that you will hide your light under a bushel no more. Rather :
~ Start dreaming your biggest dreams
~ Determine to get into position
~ Get ready to turn the ignition and
~ Lets get motoring with actions to
~ Achieve the success you so richly deserve
