Only one person can build your confidence – guess who? That’s right, you. If you
don’t do it, who will?
It will only happen if you make a firm commitment, set goals, plan a strategy and
take action. All of this means accepting full responsibility for yourself – deciding to
be confident and refusing to allow anyone to deflect you from your chosen
Accepting responsibility adds up to never, never blaming other people for:
■ Your lack of confidence
■ How others treat you
■ Your thoughts, words and actions
■ Failures, misfortunes and setbacks
■ Or anything else.
Assume that everything that happens from now on is your own doing. Think and
behave accordingly. You’ll find it’s one of the most liberating things you can do.
