Every luxury must be paid for, and everything is a luxury, starting with being in this world.
-- Cesare Pavese


Monday, April 19, 1999


Every action you take, brings you more confidence in taking additional actions. Confidence comes from doing.

If you lack confidence, then do something about it -- literally. Do something. Take action. No matter how little confidence you may have, still there is something you can bring yourself to do, some action you can take. Go ahead and do it. Take that first step. Keep doing it until you develop the confidence to take the next step.

Confidence is something you build with your actions. No one can give it to you or sell it to you. Your confidence must come from you.

In what way is your lack of confidence holding you back? What can you do right now to begin building the confidence you need? What small action are you confident enough to take, that will put you on the road to even more confidence?

Start where you are. There is something you can do. Make the effort. Build your confidence, and it will serve you well.

— Ralph Marston
