Confidence is the magic ingredient that changes you from a spectator into a player, and it only takes a small change to make a massive difference to what you achieve in life. If Tom Cruise was 10% taller, he’d be over 6 foot. If you had 10% more confidence, what would you be doing now?
A small change = a big difference
