One Step To Confidence


In my experience, confidence is not something that you one day wake up with; it’s an evolutionary process and it comes from within. It is not something that someone hands you – like a crown or a trophy, it’s not a badge to wear; it’s not an attainment. It is a becoming. Or, rather it’s an unbecoming. Many of us ... Read More »
