- Presenting yourself as someone who is confident can increase your chances of making someone fall in love with you.
- Possessing confidence during job interviews gives you a much better chance of an employment offer, relative to others who possess solid resumes, but who lack self-confidence.
- A confident person usually possesses at least TEN TIMES the likelihood of success than a person who lacks confidence. Think about it. Ten Times More Likely to Succeed.
- Confidence creates trust. Everyone wants to be able to trust the people they do business with, become friends with, and fall in love with.
