Most people fake confidence until they feel comfortable eluding it. But is that really confidence? If you fake something so much to the point where you believe it can you honestly say you have acquired confidence? Lil wayne once said "Confidence is a stain, that can't be wiped off." So by you believing does that substitute the truth for knowing? Believing you have confidence and knowing you have it are two different things. You can not acquire confidence...it must be created. An abstract trait such as confidence can be hard to find but once you've seen it and felt it, you can't help but to gravitate towards it. I'm not saying that you either have it or you don't because in certain areas of our life's we are more confident in than others. However if you take that confidence and expand it to every part of our life, how different would you be?
