Confidence is a trust in our ability to follow through on any given task or behavior. It comes from mastering a task. This “trust” is an essential ingredient of relaxation needed for the brain to function efficiently and creatively so the person’s behavior can exhibit a natural sense of flow; a flow which is more relative to the ‘smoothness’ of real life, or one that is more open and child-like in nature.
