Confidence, or the lack of it, is a huge factor in peoples lives.  One of the most common questions people ask is how they can have more confidence.  What they are really asking is how they can have confidence at times when they do not. They feel that they could achieve what they want at those times if they felt confident.  Confidence is a resourceful state of mind, whereas feeling unconfident generally gets in the way of taking action and finding solutions.
Confident and unconfident are two sides of the same coin.
Like a coin, only one side at a time is evident.  Whenever un-confidence is felt, it indicates that confidence is present.  Ironically, when a person feels unconfident they are quite confident that they feel unconfident.  There are plenty of things they are confident about, that have brought them to the conclusion that they are unconfident about something.
