How to be confident in any situation
(Charisma University, July 29, 2019)
For many "Don Draper" (aka Dick Whitman) is the epitome of confidence. But what most people don’t realize is that confidence actually comes in two flavors.

There is the external confidence we project, which can make closing deals, making friends, or seducing someone happen more naturally. There is also the internal confidence we feel, which is how comfortable we are in any given situation.

Let's analyze what Draper can teach us about both levels of confidence and how mastering each level can take us from being nervous to completely confident in any situation.

0:41: Lesson #1: His relaxed body language.
2:58: Lesson #2: Don is non-reactive.
5:18: Lesson #3: He doesn’t try to convince other people.
6:57: Lesson #4: The belief that he will be okay, no matter what.
