Tyra Banks started the Flawsome Ball to raise money for the Lower Eastside Girls Club in New York. "Your flaws + awesome = Flawsome." I love this idea because embracing imperfection is definitely key to having confidence.

The Star Wars kid is an example of a young man with plenty of imagination who got bullied and teased for it. Wide exposure can rattle anyone's confidence. George Lucas stood up for him. But what if there was a wider culture of support to begin with?

Patrick commented on Rock 'n Roll Camp - developing rockstar confidence

Music is perhaps an especially good way to build creative confidence. One, it's impossible to achieve mastery without lots of practice and mistakes. It doesn't happen overnight. And two, it's a highly social artform. Engaging with supportive, passionate people is not only conducive to building more skill but also incredible for instilling confidence. Bravo!

Cool—thanks, Hao!

Great contribution. This institutionalizes support for creative risk-taking, which I feel is important because it lets people know there's an authority who believes in them. If you know, for instance, that your CEO really wants you to take risks and that it's okay to fail, that culture is going to permeate the entire organization and help everyone's creative confidence!
