    Clarity

    Hi.
    Brian Tracy has a book named "The power of clarity".

    I wonder what clarity he has in mind.I saw a translated version of it(probably illigal), where the translator had translated it as "self-confidence"! .Was she right?

    I'm not familiar with the book so I have no idea.

    Re: Clarity

    One would probably have to read the book to know what was meant.

    Re: Clarity

    Self-confidence is a bad translation. If you can't use "clarity" then try "focus."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    That might be one part of the intended meaning. See post #3.

    Does clarity only affect what you want?

    No, but I guess only stating clearly your ambitions can have power.Or maybe he meant determination?!
