Had I not have attended the University of Surrey’s Silver Academy programme between November 2010 and May 2011, I would have retained my blinkered view that you can’t learn to be confident – you’re either confident or you are not. That’s not true. Neither did I read quotes about self-confidence; so what about this one:
“Too many people overvalue what they are not and undervalue what they are.” Malcolm S. Forbes
So here I am: motivated, inspired and confident, but will it last? Well, these are skills and, like any skills, without refreshing them occasionally they are likely to diminish. So sort out the self-help books and search out some courses or workshops and keep it all going.
