Highly confident people believe in their ability to achieve. If you don’t believe in yourself, why should anyone else put their faith in you?
Recently met with one of the OB/GYN doctors in my department, and she gave me such inspirational advice.
1. When you’re pursuing medicine, it is competitive, even if you are generally not a competitive person, you will have to learn to be.
2. Confidence is what will carry you through it all. And not know-it-all kind of confidence, but having humble confidence.
