When you think of the word confidence, what other words come to mind (i.e. sure, certain, belief)? Everyone feels confident at different times and in different places. Where and when do you feel the most confident and sure of yourself? Some people are confident in math or writing while others are confident in music or physical skills. What skill do you feel most confident doing and demonstrating? We all have strengths! Confident people finish this sentence strongly; “I am ______ (i.e., brave, capable, worthy). How would you finish that sentence? We can feel confidence inside our bodies! We have a sense inside our bodies that we are certain and sure of something. When you feel confident, where do you feel it and what does it feel like? You can also be confident in others or a situation- what or who are you sure of in your life? When we are confident, we believe in ourselves and others.
