Real Confidence

If you read this blog with any regularity, you know that I am a big believer in the power of self confidence.  The other day, I came across some interesting thoughts on confidence from Dan Rockwell.

Check them out and let me know what you think…

Confidence is open. Bravado stands aloof.

Confidence in the office is an open door. A closed door breeds arrogance, isolation, and blame.

Isolation signals lack of confidence.

Confidence lets others know they matter. Arrogance tries to matter more by making others matter less.

Confidence has room for curiosity. Faux confidence pounds its chest and tells people what it knows.

Confident is forward-facing. Leadership is always about building the future, not rebuilding the past.

Real confidence knows there’s more to know.

Confident people lean into the future. Confidence rejects the comfort of the past. When the past is brighter than your vision for the future, make reservations in the nursing home.

Confident people stand on the past and build the future.
