Confidence Prompt Cards

  • You might...

    • Keep the packet of cards to hand and refer to them at fragile moments.

    • Stick one or two cards in your purse or wallet to remind you of fundamental truths.

    • Tuck a card into a note to give to a friend when they face obstacles.

    • Arrange the cards into a creative mood board as a reminder of the importance of forgiving yourself the horror of any first attempt.

    • 'Everyone is afraid - even those who frighten us.'

    • 'Confidence is what translates theory into practice. It should never be thought of as the enemy of good things; it is their crucial and legitimate catalyst. We need to develop confidence in confidence.'

    • 'We have not seen enough of the rough drafts of those we admire. Confidence means forgiving ourselves for the horrors of our first attempts.'

    The design is inspired by Pop Art - used by comic book illustrations, and later by artists such as Roy Lichtenstein - which suggests the playful dynamism associated with confidence.
