We all have things to be confident about, and should daily remind ourselves of that, when in doubt.  A powerful motivational reminder - thank you for the post.

Hi Lou, I agree 100% - preparation is the main ingredient for self confidence especially when giving a presentation - some peope have confidence because they can "wing it" - but it's only because they are already prepared with the information and they know it.

Lou: You can always spot someone that is truly self confidentd when they are knowledgeable with the industry or product they represent. In the world of today you can not wing-it very long; someone will catch on.

Good thoughts.  I like to "visit" these posts that have been featured as part of Carol Williams SCS Second Class Saturday post series.  They remind me of the intelligent "conversation" and "discussion" that can be found on this platform.

Great and totally correct statement.  The more prepared you are, the more confident you will be.  THANK YOU.
