A friend who lacks confidence told me that she wished I could give seminars on how to do it. Barring that, though, she asked for advice. Now, I'm no psychologist; I don't know how to go about advising grown adults about how to acquire confidence when they don't have much. But I could outline my principles for her. Here is what I told her; please feel free to chime in, folks, because you nice people have great ideas.I think Deb's idea are excellent, but you might have your own suggestions to offer. I fear it's a huge topic.
One more thing I'll say about Deb:
her energy never seems to ebb.
