Building Confidence

Can we bridge the gap of confidence at every walk of life.

There is a mattering gap . Starts at a 10 in 5 year olds. Down to 3.2 in 4th grade. By 12th grade it is down to 2.04

Essential needs tie into the nattering quotient.

100 million people were asked about mattering. 88 percent said they do not perform at 100 percent. Number 1 reason is because people feel like they don't matter.

5 years olds will seek out the attention they need to feel like they matter. That is why they are happy.

Mattering is the most essential agenda.
