“Confidence can’t be granted. It comes from setting challenges and then surmounting them”
That’s not entirely accurate though. Truly confident people are confident at all times, even in areas they have no experience in.
Maybe confidence is when no one can really make you feel bad about yourself. No words will bring you down. You could receive a thousand insults, and you wouldn’t bat an eye. You could get fired, and you’d just calmly send out your resume.
