Confidence requires a balance. Both extremes are terrible for learning.
I have had too much confidence to think I didn’t need to read leadership books because I was a practical learner. I couldn’t see that books help gain new perspectives.
I have had too little confidence to think I couldn’t learn how to put my emotions to good use. I believed myself to be brutally honest and that was never going to change.
Confidence does not come from telling yourself you are great. It comes from building skills and gaining experience living them. Try, fail & learn. – Dr. Henry Cloud
