If you got the guts to stick it out, you are going to make it.

Confidence is a golden key to achievement of your most treasured dreams. Confidence will open doors for you and will enable you to perform with excellence once you get inside those doors. Confidence will earn you respect and will get you results. Confidence will free you from countless hours of wasted worry. It will bring a priceless energy and enthusiasm to whatever you undertake.

Confidence is not something you acquire by seeking it directly. Instead, it grows as you give it more reason to grow, as you make the foundation for that confidence more solid. True confidence comes not as a result of attempting to be confident, but rather as a result of working to make a difference in the world.

Confidence comes from knowing that what you’re doing is right, and that what you’re doing is right for you. It is built by taking risks and seeking challenges. It is strengthened through experience, perseverance and commitment.

Know who you are and where you’re going, and your confidence will grow. Keep yourself focused and disciplined, and your confidence will soar. Live with integrity and the awesome power of true confidence will be yours with which to do great things.
