Confidence





We're all idiots, one way or another. As Socrates said, the only true wisdom is knowing you know nothing. Although this may be true, doubting yourself won't get you far in life. In fact, it might keep you from accomplishing anything at all.

Confidence, though...that will carry you through, even if you're dumber than average.

You have to be cocky enough to be wrong, mess up, make a fool of yourself, then leap up and go at it again. Because everybody who tries anything makes mistakes. The confident ones recover, however, while those of us who can't accept our shortcomings are mumbling and rocking in the corner.
