I laughed out loud when I read this quote on the "bettermanprojects" blog I follow, "A tiger doesn't lose sleep over the opinion of sheep."
What a turn of events - if you always act like a sheep, you are constantly in a victim mentality and always wondering when and where the tiger will pounce.
But simply turning the table and taking on the role of the king instead of the hunted makes all of the difference.
Increasing your self-confidence begins with an active decision to no longer play the victim card. It requires that you take action for your decisions. It requires that you know and understand that you are the secret to your success.
Farnoosh Brock's sixth step in her "21-Step Confidence Building Series" holds the secret:
