Every single person has a goal that they want to achieve, and psychologist and life coach Donna Kennedy's confidence talk recognizes that getting to that end is difficult. Whether as a result of something as innocuous as procrastination or shyness or something as pernicious as substance abuse or mental health, people are all just products of their environments, conditioned to have those negative traits but not inevitably saddled with them. As Kennedy puts it, there's never been a baby who's "just one of those pessimistic people."

The thing to recognize is that "life happens," as Kennedy puts it in her confidence talk. Big and small setbacks happen to every single person on Earth, and how those are handled determines success and failure. For Kennedy, this means deciding whether one wants to be a "victim" or a "victor," a decision that leads to genuine, truly felt confidence.
