Confidence is generally described as a state of being certain either that a hypothesis or prediction is correct or that a chosen course of action is the best or most effective. Self-confidence is having confidence in oneself. Arrogance or hubris in this comparison is having unmerited confidence—believing something or someone is capable or correct when they are not. Overconfidence or presumptuousness is excessive belief in someone (or something) succeeding, without any regard for failure. Confidence can be a self-fulfilling prophecy as those without it may fail or not try because they lack it and those with it may succeed because they have it rather than because of an innate ability. Taken to an extreme, over-confidence can cause problems as evidenced by the famous author Matthew Syed and mentioned here in this reference in regard to sport.

I was reading an article in the newspaper regarding time. It was very interesting. The writer was describing how we conceive time and by reading that a picture pop in my mind, from a movie that I adore at the age of 16. “The dead poets’ society” called the movie, where the professor stood up on the chair in the class and asked his students to follow him by doing the same. Everything seemed different from that angle of view, from the chair. You can see that things are not flat, you have clarity of what is going on around on. At least this is how I conceived all this experience and wanted to share it with you.

Having a conversation with a client Martha of mine (for the sake of the article, i use of name “Martha”) in our session about her marriage, I was surprised when she described her marriage like the “carrot and the stick” theory. It put me into thoughts to be honest because she seemed that she like that. As a coach I observe and analyse everything that happens around me so, I had that conversation in my mind for many days now and I would like to share it with you.

Sitting in a coffeehouse near the ferry terminal in Hamilton City at Bermuda, I wonder seeing all these people about where they are going, from where they are coming. What is their story? Everyone has a unique story. Isn’t that amazing how unique we all are but we don’t realize it. Take a moment and think about it, no one of us has the same story with someone else. There is great power behind this uniqueness if we are just aware of it.

Today in the morning going to work, I was parking my car where a dozen of birds were flying above me. I went out of the car stand there and was watching them. They seem so free, flying everywhere. One of them was very near me and was looking at me. I tried to reach him but it flew away few meters further from me.

While you are driving the car, you can see the trees, leaving your behind, the sun is shining at you with its warm sunshine on your face, the wind is touching softly your hair and blend them with him. You can smell the flowers; hear the birds, the soft piano music playing on your radio. You feel so peaceful and you are trying to pause, freeze this moment. This is a moment of a glimpse of happiness. You feel your body chilling and so much intense feelings of existing.
