It takes confidence

To live positively, to enjoy all the fulfillment that your life can have, to follow your dreams, takes confidence. Often you must move forward with your heart, even when your head tells you to turn back. It takes confidence.

Confidence springs from a belief in what you are doing. Confidence grows when you continually take action and meet challenges head-on. Face your fears, act in spite of them, and confidence becomes a part of you.

Everything you do becomes more effective, when approached with a strong sense of confidence. There will always be thousands of very sensible reasons why you should not take action. Confidence will enable you to transcend those doubts, and to continue moving toward your destination.

Build your confidence, and it will serve you well.

— Ralph Marston
