Self-respect, especially when it is deserved, is considerably more important than self-confidence, with which it is confused, and which is overrated….To live a life is to spend time not dead.

A meaningful life often requires risk taking (this is less true of meaningless lives consult meaning-in-life underachievers). Meaning sometimes requires proceeding unconfidently.
