    In short confidence is us saying I'm not perfect but I'm good for who I know I am. I don't need to feel Devine to feel happy.

    All school of life videos stem from the basic idea that humans are all deeply flawed and suppress their strange, true self. What if that's wrong?

    Next time you fuck up or feel nervous about something just remember everyone fucks up and we all do stupid things. Be confident because everyone has done some really dumb shit in their life

    I love this video, it gives a positive outlook on life. We're all flawed humans underneath the perfection facade we put up, so why not embrace your flaws? I think the moral here is don't take yourself or life too seriously 😝

    Thing is, when I'm by myself I'm as confident as tony stark in iron man, but then once I'm outside with people I kinda shrink. And I'm arguments I tend to start crying for no reason.

    I applied the philosophy of this video in my life, and frankly said, it's the best "how to be confident" video out there. This kind of thinking just liberates your mind, and makes you overcome shyness and boost your confidence. Thank You !

    It's a big step from accepting that you and everyone screw up from time to time to telling yourself your an idiot every morning. Terrible message and video. How about some practical tips on how to be confident like the video suggests.

    Most people don't ask for help because they'll look dumb, but life is too short to care about what other people think of you, i ask all the stupid questions because i know others have the same question but are afraid to ask for themselves, i don't mind looking dumb as long as i get results.

    It is interesting to see the perspective of humor as it cleanses the mind of insecurities. Deep in the realms of our minds lies the characteristics of a foolish being. Thus, coming to grips with this realization allows for me to finally understand the blunders that we all make and the hurtful admonitions we impose on ourselves.

    Consequently, this notion leaves me smiling at the fact that we are all creative beings full of wonder in the sense that we are inevitably going to face failure but in a dignified manner that encapsulates our inner child.
