In an interview, David Attenborough was once asked, ‘where did you get your love of the natural world?’ His response has always stayed with me, he replied: ‘how did you lose it?’ Now isn’t that the truth?
I believe self-confidence is the same. We can’t get self-confidence. We can only lose it.
We arrived in this world shouting our heads off with absolutely no apology for being ourselves. It was if we were saying: ‘I’m here! Look at me. Have I got your attention? Listen, this is important. I AM important. I need you to hear me. Can you see me? Here’s what I need. Can you hellllpppp?’ Self-confidence is our factory setting.
So, when you feel that you have lost your self-confidence, try asking yourself: ‘how?’
