What makes you feel confident? For me, sometimes it’s the small things… like remembering the time I did the Tarzan swing in Costa Rica which was basically jumping off a 60-foot platform and swinging into the air with nothing more than a hope and a harness.

This always makes me feel confident. This post is about confidence – why? Many of my clients say they want more confident.
