@WATC_Updates – when I’m pushed into a deep situation it is then I have so much confidence as I excel under pressure & showcase my ability??

@WATC_Updates@SesayPaul@lucy03112012@dmsenterprise I think it’s about coming out of your comfort zone – feel the fear and do it anyway!!

@WATC_Updates Easy to confuse confidence with assertiveness but quiet confidence and conviction are key to motivation #watctop100

@WATC_Updates confidence is never a bad thing but I also know plenty of people who have been successful despite having little confidence! ??
