The Power of Self-Confidence

Another classic by Brian Tracy. This time about being self-confident. What I like about this book is that he starts with the foundations: values and goals. Self-confidence comes from within and is not a product of your surroundings.

One of the great stories in the book is about a man that receives a cheque for half a million from John D. Rockefeller. His business was struggling but now he decides to give his whole and becomes profitable within the year. Of course, he never cashed the cheque, and if he did he would have found out that it was someone from the mental hospital pretending to be John D. Rockefeller.

The last chapter of the book deals with self-confidence and how your actions can help you build it. Only through practice, you can become better at something, the same goes for self-confidence. Feeling a little light in the self-confidence area or just want some inspiration to listen to (or read), be my guest.
