Her Life Before the Discovery of Self Confidence
Elsie was a watcher, a spectator, an observer. During her school days, she was the nerdy girl in pigtails and glasses, sitting at the back of the class.

She wouldn’t volunteer for anything, primarily because she didn’t want to attract any attention whatsoever to herself.

Her Life After the Discovery of Self Confidence

The One Self Confidence Tip For the Listener
March to the beat of your own drums. Keep your own rhythm. Don’t ever be pressured into conforming to other people’s standards or surrender your dreams because other people are not confident of your success.
