    You can also give “Lime Light” movie of Charles Chapline which is confidence building up. “Sound of Music” is a great inspirational one for all. Julie Andrews I Have Confidence in Me is song of ever hit. It encompasses all human values!

    If you’re in tech start-up please watch “The Social Network” a movie about Facebook. That movie will let you know that you don’t have to wait for everything to be perfect before you start. Just start from where ever you are. You can never finish a start up, it’s like a fashion, is never ending.

    I also would say Erin Brockovich, who had the confidence to take on a big a law case against a huge Gas and Electric Company. It just goes to show, if something means a lot to you having confidence in your own abilities is a must
