Making the Self-Confidence Decision

I know people who consciously decided to be happy a number of years ago, and they have been happy ever since. Despite the everyday frustrations that cause many people stress, they are able to maintain their feelings of well-being. If they temporarily lose those feelings of well-being, they are able to quickly bounce back.

The same resilience applies to self-confidence. People who consciously decide to be self-confident are able maintain their thoughts and feelings of self-confidence. This decision is not a vow or an oath. Rather, it is the awareness that everyone is entitled to a genera state of self-confidence.
