I attended a meeting where a vendor was presenting a proposal but I felt it was not very well done. She seemed lacking in experience in making a presentation but it may be because of a lack of confidence as well.
How can we be more confident in what we do?
I find that experience count a lot and we have to believe in what we do, but I feel that the best of all, we have a faithful God who undergirds us with his presence when we do what we do with his strength and not our own.
He is our confidence.
And I found these sayings encouraging;
Confidence comes from discipline and training.
~ Robert Kiyosaki
Confidence comes with maturity, being more accepting of yourself.
~ Nicole Scherzinger
Experience tells you what to do; confidence allows you to do it.
~ Stan Smith
Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained.
~ Marie Curie
Confidence... thrives on honesty, on honor, on the sacredness of obligations, on faithful protection and on unselfish performance. Without them it cannot live.
~ Franklin D. Roosevelt
Faith is a living, daring confidence in God's grace, so sure and certain that a man could stake his life on it a thousand times.
~ Martin Luther
I tremble for my country when I hear of confidence expressed in me. I know too well my weakness, that our only hope is in God.
~ Robert E. Lee
