I am certainly not full of confidence. But at the same time, I don’t see point in telling myself that I don’t deserve my success – if I’ve done something, then I’ve done it!
I’m the type of person who feels good about getting praise, just so long as I am happy about what its for. If I’m not, then I usually just thank the person anyway and take it as a compliment, even if I don’t believe it myself.
Turning down praise every time somebody hands it to you will just make you believe it even less!
