    I Am Always Surprised By How Confident I Appear To Be!

    People always says things to me like "your so confident you could do anything" or "your the most confident I know".  I'm always surprised by such remarks, i just don't realise just how confident I appear to be.  I always come across as being really enthusiastic and...

    For me it Really depends on the subject,

    if I am interested in it or Have to know it for one reason or another, I get Deep into the subject matter and learn all I can and while I am learning "I fake it, 'til I make it" It is that way with a new job too, I go into the interview and/or the first day/week on the job and...

    Sometimes I can pull it off sometimes I can't.

    I'm actually a decent actor in many situations though. i'll admit there were times in my past where my mentality was "act the role until you can own it or grow into it."

    I Often Hear....

    ....that I am the bravest, strongest person that people know...how that can be true, when I am a quivering bowl full of jelly on the inside, I do not know... Yet, in true Gloria Gaynor fashion, I have survived all that life has thrown at me, and all that I have concocted out my...

    Great Lesson...

    A teacher of mine once said a rather insightful thing during a lecture. He said that confidence and self-esteem are two very different things. To be confident is to project a certain self-assurance to those around you. To have self-esteem is to actually believe in yourself and...

    A Front!

    I act more confident than I am a lot! I guess I do it to protect myself. I feel that if people knew how I really felt and let then see my vunerability they would take advantage. Most people who know me think I'm so confident, in fact they would probably say I'm the most confident...

    Acting

    i act overly confident with everything i do. but in my head im thinking im going to fail i just know i will. i think i do this more to make myself believe i can do it more than i am for other people. i have low self confidence in myself. but i try to just brush it off.
