A really confident man is not even aware of it. This has to be understood: whenever something is false you are aware of it, self-conscious. When something is real, you simply forget it. Do you remember that you are breathing? If something goes wrong, yes. If it is hard and there is something wrong with your lungs and you have a cold or asthma, then you remember that you are breathing. But when everything goes okay, you are not conscious. When the shoe fits, the foot is forgotten. When you are really confident, confidence is forgotten.
