Develop the habit of seeing things from the viewpoint and
perspective of the other person.
Apply this when you find yourself disagreeing with someone. Even though you might still disagree, you will be able to address the specific concerns of the other person - instead of just repeating your point over and over again.
(For a series of probing questions on this topic, see Rabbi Pliskin's "Gateway to Self Knowledge," pp.125-7)
Self-confidence allows you to create goals -- and reach them. It lets you learn from your failures -- and move on to triumphs. It helps you
