Confident: (adj) feeling or showing confidence in oneself; self-assured.
Stopping for a moment on the dusty trail of my life, I will tell you, the least effective means of achieving your aspirations is to be confident about confidence.
The danger with being confident is that most people require some evidence for the claims you state, and even when you’re able to actually
some obvious power and might, their anticipation may very well have been much too high, and therefore the response is modicum.
It is why optimists hang around with optimists and pessimists with pessimists. Each one bolsters the other with the confident “amen”–that the choice they have made is imperial.
Fortunately, some people step out of optimism, avoid pessimism, learn to take the truth of what they believe and douse it in humility.
Therefore, anticipation is not too high and negativity is adequately challenged.
