A quote I nearly put in this week was Carrie Fisher’s: You don’t have to wait to be confident. Just do it and eventually the confidence will flow.
I am confident in some ways and have very little in other ways, especially in social situations. I will do anything not to enter a room of strangers. Having said that, if I have to do it, I will, and I think there is truth in what Carrie Fisher says. I just find it tiring to pretend to be something I am not, and so I’d never do it long enough for it to become second nature.
