Doubt Is Deadly; Cure It With Confidence

Doubt is a thief and a killer that steals lives and destroys dreams. The most skillful, talented, resourceful people can be cut down by doubt.

The most reliable way to success is to serve others. However, if you do so with doubt, others will take advantage of you. Your efforts will frustrate you. You won’t fulfill your incredible potential.

Confidence. Just saying the word gives it to you. Say out loud, “I am filled with CONFIDENCE!", and suddenly you are. Live with confidence. Remember that no one is better than you. You are special, with your own unique contribution to make. Be the person you are. Give your best to every moment. Live with purpose. Live with passion. Live with confidence.

No one, no matter what, can take from you the essence that makes you special, the true gifts that make you the person you are. Be confident knowing that you will always be you, no matter what neigborhood you live in, no matter what kind of car you drive, no matter what other people think about you.

Live with confidence and you’ll have reason to.

— Ralph Marston
