In the movie American Gangster the character that Denzel Washington plays made the statement “the loudest one in the room is the weakest one in the room.”
In several of the schools where I worked part of my duties was to supervise the cafeteria during lunch. I saw that statement play out time and time again.
Adults display the same behavior though too. Some can be loud while others live life with a quiet confidence. You can think of several right now on both sides.
How do you display a confident attitude? Realize that your talents and your abilities are yours and yours alone and you can use them to make a difference in the world you live in. In fact, I would argue that the world you live in needs you to use your talents and gifts to make it a better place.
Be your own cheerleader. You don’t need to rely on validation from others. You can trust your talents and when you trust your talents more opportunities will present themselves to you as well.
Be confident and let your actions, talents and gifts speak for themselves.
I’m cheering for you.
