I just read a great article entitled "The Confidence Gap" http://www.theatlantic.com/features/archive/2014/04/the-confidence-gap/359815/ about how men and women differ in their levels of confidence in most aspects of life.  Rather than focus on women's lack of confidence, I would like to point out a universal equation that pertains to both men and women:  RISK TAKING + FAILURE + PERSERVANCE = CONFIDENCE

Most risks involve some sort of failure - some are large, some are small.  When faced with failure, successful and confident people persevere until they get it right, or at least right enough.  They allow the process to work - the information/feedback loop that ultimately results in confidence.  

Confidence turns thoughts into action and, action will involve a certain amount of risk-taking...and so it goes...

Confidence, as defined, is a a feeling of self-assurance arising from one's appreciation of one's own abilities or qualities. As the topic of this article is about confidence, it does remind me of my experience when I joined a beauty and brain contest/competition in our school. I won first runner up. It was a great experience for me, though I did not win the title because through this, I have improved my self confidence, self trust and self appreciation and these are what I always consider as my precious reward.

    I have spent the last 30 years helping individuals to their goals, whether it be crossing a finish line with a PR, eating better or, simply finding the 20 minutes daily they desire to exercise.
