This is a question I asked myself a lot of the past year. Where does ones confidence even come from. Does it come from the outside? Does confidence come from within? Can we cultivate confidence on our own? While I can't claim to have published papers about this, I have done a fair amount of research on the topic. I looked deep within myself when I noticed I felt my most confident and with others when they were feeling the same. Inversely, I asked myself hard questions when I recognized that feeling had drifted away. In today's post, I am going to share what I've discovered, because guess what, confidence is indeed a skill that can be learned and cultivated.
