"I love this book! Although I've reviewed books before, this is the first one I really enjoyed reviewing, and found myself expanding in process...its message is consistently positive and uplifting, its advice is timely and timeless, and its prescriptions for personal growth are, best of all, simple and doable. This is kitchen table wisdom at its best." ~John C. Robinson, Ph.D, author of Death of a Hero

While it's nice to receive external validation such as compliments and affirmations to make you feel good about yourself—those good feelings—which often translate to experiencing a bout of confidence, is really an inside job. Relying on someone else to build you up and make you feel adequate, can be problematic. Why? Because the day the compliments stop, you deflate like a ballon whose air has been let out.
I'm not saying it's not wonderful to hear nice things. I love hearing flattering things about my work, my paintings, my music, etc. But I don't stop feeling confident if I don't receive those validations.
I've often heard, "I was fine until he left. Now I don't have any confidence. He took it with him." Really? How is that even possible? No one can take your confidence unless you willingly give it away.
