Everything is material for the seed of happiness, if you look into it with inquisitiveness and curiosity.

Building confidence

Do you wish to have confidence? Then get busy and build it.

Start with something small, and take a leap of faith in yourself. When you have a modest accomplishment under your belt, you have something real upon which to build.

Then push yourself to go a little further each time. Take on new challenges that are a little beyond what you know you can do.

Put all you have into successfully moving through those new and more difficult challenges. Each time you do, your level of confidence will increase.

There is no shortcut to true confidence. Yet there is a clearly defined pathway that will surely take you there.

Challenge yourself at every opportunity to go a little beyond what you know you can do. Soon you will confidently know you can do just about anything you choose.

— Ralph Marston
