Confidence allows us to walk through life with the most efficiency and the least effort. It allows us to do what we want to do and to say what we need to say in a clear and simple way.
Fear, pain and other strong experiences make us often forget that confidence is a choice: A choice of breathing, having a high level of energy, and being fully aware of our bodies. Instead, we diminish ourselves. We stop breathing and loose our physical energy. We try to find confidence in our minds, and fail resoundingly.
You can learn to recognize your personal way of loosing confidence. And you can learn how you can get it back, choosing to shift your attention from your mind to your body.
