This question is inspired by a quote, "The self-confidence of the warrior is not the self-confidence of the average man. The average man seeks certainty in the eyes of the onlooker and calls that self-confidence. The warrior seeks impeccability in his own eyes and calls that humbleness. The average man is hooked to his fellow men, while the warrior is hooked only to infinity." - Carlos Castaneda (from Tales of Power) A long time ago, someone told me that faith is "divine self-confidence." I know some have confidence in their skills or training. Are these distinctions important?

True, it's that simple. Some days, it's that easy. Some days, not.
It never occurred to me to consider that confidence comes "By thinking that other people are inferior to oneself.”
It certainly is another way of looking at it. Thank you for responding.
