By Dr. Phil McGraw
Few of us feel totally invincible all the time -- including me. If you throw me into a social setting where I'm forced to make small talk, my normally solid self-assurance can waver. Fortunately, confidence doesn't come in fixed quantities. And if you're brimming with it in one part of your life, you're well-positioned to boost it in others.
Follow these strategies to expand the confidence you've got into something even greater.
Dr. Phil's latest book is Life Code: The New Rules for Winning in the Real World (Bird Street).
