Owning It

Self-confidence is an inner voice telling us we can do something, and do it with a sense of well-being. That’s a great power and without it, think of all the things you couldn’t have done - big and little things.

Without it I couldn’t have stood up, delivered a speech and shared nostalgic moments with the congregation. I couldn’t have looked around at their faces, paused with a smile and continued speaking with relative calm. Without self-confidence I couldn't have taken a taxi into town alone, walked up the steps in my heels, bought a drink and sat at a table with couples and work parties bubbling around my sober self. Without self-confidence, I may not have moved to London, started afresh and set up my business.
