Confidence does have to tempered with reality to a point. I may be confident I can create a WordPress website, however until I learn how to create that website that confidence is misplaced. I should actually be confident that I can learn how to build it first and then build it. Rephrase your narrative to include any action steps necessary to complete your goals. Tell yourself you can speak in front of a crowd if you give yourself time to prepare properly beforehand or whatever you need to do to accomplish your goals.
