How is it that some people are so confident in their own abilities that nobody even questions their capabilities? How is it that some people who really aren't that great at some things really believe that they are, and are able to have complete confidence in themselves?

Me, I'm not much good at (or for) anything, and I have the lack of confidence to back it up. Even if I were halfway decent at something, I wouldn't know how to go about acting like I was.

Is confidence something a person either has, or hasn't? Can it be developed or cultivated or learned? I know that Tony Robbins and some of those other late nite TV infomercial people say you can, but I've read a number of their books, and in general when I'm done I end up feeling worse than before. So, I dunno, y'know?
