Confidence is not knowing that you’ll sail through with no difficulties. It is knowing that when difficulty inevitably arises, you will be able to deal with it.
Confidence, hence, is a state of being. Yes, you can “feel” confident – invincible, even. But, it is in being confident where happiness lies.
