Confidence and Questions

scan001310.jpg

Earl Gray Stevens: Confidence … never comes from having all the answers; it comes from being open to all the questions.

I really like this quote for many reasons.  Confidence is something we all want.  We think our lives would be so much better if only we had confidence. 

To me this quote states that confidence is not a stagnant trait.  Confidence is not a black and white trait.  It is not either or.  We can be confident and we do not have to know everything.  We can seek questions and learn things.  Asking and learning makes us confident.  Confidence means we remain open.  Open to re thinking what we once thought was absolute.  Confidence means we seek answers to the questions we have.  Being open to our questions lets us look at things in a new light.  Being open to questions others present to us lets us see someone else as well as ourselves in a new light.  Being open is being confident.  Feeling comfortable with our questions gives us confidence. 

Now that I have presented confidence to you in this unusual way can you see that you have confidence.  Can you also see that sometimes you do not have confidence about something.  Can you also see that by questioning you can easily gain confidence?
