People find it easier and simpler to accept a positive quality "just for today." Living one day with self-confidence seems less difficult than thinking you must be self-confident all the time.
We live our entire lives one day at a time, one moment at a time. Having self-confidence "just for now" can get you through one encounter, meeting, occasion, or speech at a time.
People who have applied this "just for now" approach have found that after a few experiences their self-confidence has had such a boost that it's much easier for them to feel self-confident over and over again.
(Self-confidence, chapter 18 – Artscroll Publications)
