Confidence is a strange thing. What exactly is it? Why do some people seemingly have it and others don't? First of all we all are confident in something. Maybe you are a really good artist. You might stink at plumbing or carpentry but boy, can you paint and draw! True confidence actually starts with a vision. First you picture yourself as confident (seeing feeling hearing, etc) in whatever it is that you want to be confident in. That's right it's just a vision... at first. Then, with time and practice at your given "confidence," you, and everyone else, starts to believe in you. So to summarize, true confidence is merely a function of time, effort and most importantly, belief in yourself.
