Mental Toughness: How to be confident

Many believe that confidence is something people are, not posses.  This is partly true.

While confidence is an internal skill, it is still a skill.  Like all behavioral patterns, it is one that at some point took practice, and now is done without effort.  Shyness is a learnable skill.  Bravery is a learnable skill, etc.

Cultivating confidence is one of the things martial arts is fantastic at.  And, if you are not already training in an empowering martial art, I would highly recommend it as part of your awesome-training.
