Confidence – What it takes to make it last.

“Expectations are barometers of success.”

As nice as it would be, you don’t just wake up one day feeling confident. Lasting confidence is earned, through successes and accomplishments.

We all place expectations on the outcome of our performance. It’s important to remember that such expectations ultimately determine whether you consider yourself successful or not.

If you’re consistently not meeting your expectations, redefine them. Make sure they are realistic. And, most importantly, make sure they are your own. When you meet your own realistic expectations, when you measure success by your own barometer (not someone else’s), you will feel successful and your confidence will rise.
