Where confidence comes from

Where your confidence comes from is not really that important. What matters is where your confidence can take you.

Perhaps your confidence is based on your past experiences, or perhaps it is not. Perhaps you are confident in yourself just because you have chosen to be.

Confidence is not about what has already happened. Confidence is about moving forward and creating the best of what can be.

Even though you have no logical reason to be, you can still be genuinely confident about what you intend to do. Confidence is an attitude you choose, not an evaluation of what you’ve already been through.

Ultimately, confidence does not come from who you know or where you’ve been or what you’ve done. It comes from your choice to do what you know you must.

Confidence can be yours no matter what. Choose it and use it to follow your dreams.

— Ralph Marston
