Self-Confidence vs. Certainty

It’s your time in the spotlight.  Doesn’t matter if it is for a presentation like the woman in our conversation starter or the pressure you feel from others in more informal settings (playground, parties, doctor’s office, etc.).

When the spotlight is turned on you, do you freeze up?  Do you feel a little queasy?  Do strange things pour out of your mouth in rapid succession that makes no sense at all?  Do you just avoid these situations altogether?

I’ve got a treat for you in today’s Conversation Starter: Self-Confidence vs. Certainty.

You will learn two secrets and a bit about my spotlight childhood.

If the spotlight doesn’t agree with you, take a look at the video.  Even if you enjoy being the center of attention, you may find a few nuggets in the video, too!

I’m interested in your personal stories and opinions.  Which do you think is better, self-confidence or certainty?

Join the conversation by sharing below!  Be authentic because you never know how your share or comment will transform another person.

Have a peaceful, joyous, love filled day!


Psst . . . Just so you know, the spotlight doesn’t discriminate; it loves everyone equally.  Sometimes that love is unrequited.

    This is wonderful. You are right that self-confidence comes and goes (depending on the audience and my mood). Certainty, though, remains consistent.
