You are generally pretty self-confident and willing to learn from experience, which also helps build confidence.

Doing just fine
Some days, if events aren't too challenging, your confidence is OK. On other days, you probably need to practise your skills or fake it a little. You can also learn from the positive experiences you have and remind yourself about past successes to help you become more confident that things will work out well.

Confidence can be something of a struggle and you may need to question some of your self-beliefs about what you can't do, boosting your confidence by reminding yourself what you can do, and building on that.
