This is an interesting article. It is making me to think about my self-confidence. I am a physio and I am good at my speciality. Still I lack confidence mainly because of my fluency in english language. I was not selected for teacher training because of this and lack of confidence inspite of being in par with my colleagues. Because of this i dont tend to speak as much i should be doing. This is something i am not good at. Looking at the article above, inspite of doing what i am good at, I am still lacking confidence. Reading this article is so inspiring but my language is definitely not my strong point. Kindly comment.

First of all, your English is better than any of my foriegn languages. I speak a very little bit of Spanish. When I am in Spanish speaking countries, the people who understand English would much rather speak to me in that language than put up with my poor Spanish.
I cannot comment on blog posts in Spanish. The fact that you comment on mine shows that you are more fluent in English than you think.
Second, I encourage you to speak up more. I understand that you are are not confident in your English language skills. However, they will never get better if you don't practice. While some people are cruel and will make fun of your English language ability, I think that you will find that the majority of people are understanding and kind. Most people in the USA cannot speak a second language. The intelligent ones realize that someone who can (like you) has a skill that they are lacking.
In short, I encourage you to speak up. Two things will happen: 1) you'll be surprised that people will listen to you, and will help you when you struggle with a word or phrase; 2) Your English will get better as you speak.
By speaking up, you will be facing your fear of ridicule, and taking positive action that will help build your self confidence.
Thanks for commenting. I really appreciate it. Best of luck for your continued success.
All the best,
BB
