I requested, and received, permission from Goodlife ZEN to post this article. I subscribe to their articles via email and this one really hit home. I know so many people, including members of my family, that need a self-confidence boost. With that, here is an excerpt of the article and a link to the full article below:

“Did you know having self-confidence is as critical to your overall happiness and well-being as good nutrition is to your health?
That may sound like an overstatement, but research shows having self-confidence dramatically improves your finances, your relationships, your career, and your achievement in all areas of your life.
Dr. Timothy Judge of The University of Florida revealed in several studies that people with healthy self-confidence have a substantially higher annual income than those with low confidence.
In his research he learned that self-confidence people from blue-collar families make about $7,000 more than those without confidence from the same class. People from the professional classes who have self-confidence make a whopping $28,000 more than their low-confidence peers. Clearly self-confidence is a profitable quality, one that directly impacts your bottom line.”
