Summary

How self-confident are you? Be honest with yourself.

There are dozens of self-confidence checklists on the Web, and many of them will provide good information. Most of us probably fall somewhere in the middle of the range between "I am the greatest” and “I can’t trust myself to do anything right.”

If you’re not satisfied with your score, and you’d like to feel more self-assured—or give others the courage to act—there’s good news. Laying a solid foundation and getting started with the basics doesn’t have to be complicated.

This book will help you remember a few key points and keep you focused and inspired. Start by recognizing what you’ve already achieved. You had strengths that enabled you to accomplish those things. Building on that, what’s important to you going forward? Where are you headed?

Many times we can’t control the outside world, at least not completely. But we can always do better at managing our interior world. That’s not as abstract as it may sound. Listen carefully and start noticing what you are telling yourself about your abilities. Are you undermining yourself? Psychologists call that “negative self-talk.” Make a commitment to brighten a downbeat attitude and replace it with a positive outlook.

By the way, Be Confident. Don’t Give Up! is a great companion to its predecessor, Optimism Overcomes Obstacles. Self-confidence and optimism are an unbeatable team.

"Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.” ~Golda Meir
