Somehow I can’t believe that there are any heights that can’t be scaled by a man who knows the secrets of making dreams come true. This special secret, it seems to me, can be summarized in four C’s. They are curiosity, confidence, courage, and constancy, and the greatest of all is confidence. When you believe in a thing, believe in it all the way, implicitly and unquestionable.
– Walt Disney
IMHO, self-confidence can make or break a first impression. Yes, it matters. No matter how jittery you’re feeling inside, you just have to sum up all the strength widen to fake it.
Fake it and you’ll be just it! Trust me, most of the people I meet tell me how amazed they are by my confidence level. It’s really just the matter of simply tuning your mind to ease into your part of the play.
