There are over 60.000 books dealing with the subject of self esteem on the global Amazon.com bootstore, and another 105,000 covering self improvement. So it is probably fair to say that we in the modern world have a bit of a problem with self confidence.
At best the problem makes us hesitant, shy and secretive, at worst it drives those at the fringe to become reclusive siciopaths or worse. And the greats irony is that is it the industrial powerhouses of the modern age, the Western countries, which have the biggest share of the problem.
Despite ecomonicaly and culturaly ruling over most of the civilised globe, we still have a hard time believeing in ourselves. Or may be that`s the reason on itself.
