Let’s start from last week’s premise: that confidence is the primary cultivatable skill that points towards success.

Now is this the same sort of thing that helicopter parents have been trying to instill via never disagreeing with their children while simultaneously providing a padded, failure-free environment?  I don’t know. I doubt it though.

I want to believe that the type of confidence that matters actually requires internal, self-developed forces, and is more than that falsely provided by no-failing-grades permitted educational system of today.

True confidence requires seeing through the existing systems we’ve created- be they in business, school, industry- and saying, I see how things work…and I don’t need to live within these boundaries…I see a better way.

One of my favorite quotes from Goethe:

“Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.”
A rather bold color, yes?
A rather bold color, yes?
