Today’s topic: How would you rate your self confidence? When is it at its lowest? When is it at its highest?
Even if I don’t feel confident, I can fake it pretty well. I feel my best when I’m on what I consider “home turf.” I could confidently show a friend how to navigate downtown Merida, for example, or rural Virginia where I grew up.
My confidence is a bit shaky when I have a presentation to make. I was a bit nervous at the NILA conference last year. It didn’t help that my video segments refused to play during the presentation! I admit to feeling out of my element in crowds, but I can survive it. I hate to be put on the spot without warning.
