Confidence Versus Self-Esteem

This article was sent to me by a former client, and I’ve found it to be not only very topical but a good illustration to help people delineate between confidence (which tends to be based on external success and failure) and self-esteem (which is ultimately how we feel about ourselves). It’s written by Libby Ludlow, a former athlete who suddenly had to change her expectations of her performance when she switched career streams.

Give it a read. You might wish to define these two attributes a little differently, but one of the good things about sharing articles and ideas is that it allows us to form opinions which speak to our experience.
