Boost Your Confidence with the Right Words

Confidence is one of those things that makes all the difference when it comes to realizing your potential. So many people have great ideas and great ambitions, but lack the confidence to follow through when it counts. They hold themselves back. Their amazing and bold ideas turn into lackluster ideas, as fear starts talking (if they talk at all.) A while back, a team in HR interviewed me on confidence, because enough people pointed back to me as somebody they saw as confident. What HR wanted to know is, where does my confidence come from?
For me, it mostly came from a relentless focus on making impact. I put my focus on doing great things, creating raving fan customers, and taking on big challenges. Where you put your focus, instantly changes your confidence. If you’re too worried about how you look or how you sound, then you aren’t putting enough focus on the amazing thing you are trying to do.

A few times in the last weeks I’ve run into a problem where I found that DELETE operations would not fire in ASP.NET MVC controllers. I’ve been building APIs mostly with Web API until recently, but started using MVC instead with current projects in light of vNext which essentially uses the MVC model for ‘APIs’. And I ran into trouble each time with PUT and DELETE verbs not firing. What’s the Problem? To demonstrate here’s a simple action method on an MVC controller that uses Attribute routing for a delete operation:[Route("albums/{id}")] [AcceptVerbs(HttpVerbs.Delete)] public ActionResult DeleteAlbum(int id) { var albumBus =
new AlbumBusiness(); if (!albumBus.Delete(id, saveChanges: true, useTransaction: true)) throw new CallbackException("Couldn't delete album: " + albumBus.ErrorMessage); return Json(true, JsonRequestBehavior.AllowGet); } When this route is fired I’m getting a 404 error from IIS – it’s not finding the route. However, if I change the route to a HttpVerbs.Get it runs just fine. What the heck is happening here? Missing Verbs on ExtensionlessUrlHandler The main culprit is the ExtensionlessUrlHandler Http handler that’s responsible for handling MVC’s Controller and Attribute routing. The default entry for this handler is defined in ApplicationHost.config doesn’t include the DELETE...(Read whole news on source site)
