I think everyone needs to see this. Phillip DeFranco gives a little speech on confidence, even though it's directed to his female viewers it still applies in some aspects:

That I'm naturally quite smart and always tend to be well above average in my school exam marks. And that I'm big into horses and riding, and through that, have something that I'm passionate about and can be proud of.

Loving how this thread makes us all sound so full of ourselves :L

How I'm a dancer and a writer, and people are finally noticing that and giving me the chance to do what I love for a living. How I do well in school--college level--which surprised me since I was homeschooled my whole life. Also how I'm accepting of others' points of view and how I deal with situations where things don't turn out how I wanted.

But it's good to like stuff about yourself. I mean, why shouldn't you?

We all have to realize what's good with us and what makes us kinda awesome, but we don't have to go on bragging about it, then we would all sound full of ourselves.

I love the fact that I have a good memory. And that I'm generally nice and easy to get along with. And the fact that I have an infectious laugh. And the fact that I barely ever get spots.

I love my egoism... the way I don't care about anything and anyone but writing. The fact that I've got a goal. An ideal. Something worth going forward for (so many young people just haven't). I love the way I run and stand heat when everyone goes into the shade. I love all of my obsessions including the latest... scratching dandruff off my head. I don't know why, but I enjoy it when everyone else is disgusted
Oh, I forgot my nails! Long, jagged and beloved.

The fact that I always think different from people around me. And my smartness indeed

I love the fact I'm easy to get along with and can stand in a room of 25 kids my age and after an hour befriend them all. I also love how I'm so different from everyone else and I laugh at anything.
