Our doubts are traitors And makes us lose the good we oft might win By fearing to attempt. --Lucio, Act I, scene iv Measure for Measure (c. 1603)
Rebellion against your handicaps gets you nowhere. Self-pity gets you nowhere. One must have the adventurous daring to accept oneself as a bundle of possibilities and undertake the most interesting game in the world - making the most of one's best.
Harry Emerson Fosdick
I was always looking outside myself for strength and confidence but it comes from within. It is there all the time.
Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained.
Getting ahead in a difficult profession — singing, acting, writing, whatever — requires avid faith in yourself. You must be able to sustain yourself against staggering blows and unfair reversals. When I think back to those first couple of years in Rome, those endless rejections, without a glimmer of encouragement from anyone, all those failed screen tests, and yet I never let my desire slide away from me, my belief in myself and what I felt I could achieve.
Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence.
If you know you are on the right track, if you have this inner knowledge, then nobody can turn you off... Regardless of what they say.
Dare to be what you are, and learn to resign with a good grace all that you are not and to believe in your own individuality.

I had always wanted to learn a...

Why Do I Stutter?Submitted by Anonymous
I stutter. When I was younger, I didn't know what it was and I was often ashamed of it. I even was home-schooled because of it. I had no friends and thought no one liked me 'cause I was different. Well, 2 years ago I started speech therapy and began to realize that I wasn't alone. There are a lot of people...

So inspiring!! I need to work on being confident in my looks, personality, and strenths instead of worrying about my flaws all the time. Confidence really is an important quality to have.
This site is a great example of God's work in action - I am using this site to have 8th graders create an original inspirational billboard phrase. Thanks

Do best in your life my friend, and don't lose your confidence.
Ribu Meher, Sonepur
In my life I am searching for so much right now. Confidence and understanding what I am here to do with my life is a big ? mark right now. For me, I am trying to understand the purpose...right now it is my kids, professionally I am lost, I am even more lost in my convictions. I need a bolt of lighting to hit me in rain storm, get that ah ha moment and transform my life. Tonight, my year and a half year old son got second degree burns on both hands and I am beating myself up over it. My wife is at the ER while I am asking question after question. There is no greater importance than the kids you are responsible for bringing into this world. In closing, eventually peace will come, but not right now when you can't sleep.
I love this website.
YOU NEED TO BELIEVE IN YOURSELF!
