Earning confidence

Even the smallest accomplishment will boost your confidence level. And with increased confidence, you can set your sights on a larger accomplishment.

Confidence is not something that comes to just a lucky few. Confidence is not something that anyone else can simply hand over to you.

You can’t buy confidence, you can’t inherit it, and you cannot gain it by taking it away from others. Everyone who has real confidence has earned it, one accomplishment at a time.

Start with what you have, with what you know you can do, and then add a little challenge to it. Soon you’ll know without a doubt that you can do even more.

As your confidence grows, so will your achievements, because the biggest achievements come to those who have the confidence to take on the most difficult challenges.

Confidence requires work, and it is well worth the effort. Use every opportunity to earn yourself more confidence, and many valuable doors will continue opening for you.
