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.
Hold yourself responsible for a higher standard than anybody else expects of you, never excuse yourself.
Henry Ward Beecher
Confidence...thrives on honesty, on honor, on the sacredness of obligations, on faithful protection and on unselfish performance. Without them it cannot live.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
Action is a great restorer and builder of confidence. Inaction is not only the result, but the cause, of fear. Perhaps the action you take will be successful; perhaps different action or adjustments will have to follow. But any action is better than no action at all.
Norman Vincent Peale
Aerodynamically, the bumble bee shouldn't be able to fly, but the bumble bee doesn't know it so it goes on flying anyway.
Mary Kay Ash
What really distinguishes this generation in all countries from earlier generations...is its determination to act, its joy in action, the assurance of being able to change things by one's own efforts.
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.
Whenever you are asked if you can do a job, tell 'em, 'Certainly I can!' Then get busy and find out how to do it.
As you become more clear about who you really are, you'll be better able to decide what is best for you - the first time around.
A good leader inspires others with confidence in him; a great leader inspires them with confidence in themselves.

Personal Stories About ‘Confidence’
ConfidenceSubmitted by Maya
Confidence Trying out for a sport is scary and nerve racking. It’s never as easy as it looks. You have to work on things before tryouts even come. For example I wanted to try out for cheer. I worked on things that I needed to be better at doing before tryouts even came. The first day of clinics was very hard! I...
Me, In Charge?!Submitted by Malyaka Bush
My sophomore year in high school I joined my school's step team. It was my first time stepping and thought it would be cool to try something new since I was really shy my freshman year. After the club ended that year, I was nominated to be step captain for my junior year. I didn’t think I was fit for the job, but...
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...

Fiquei feliz quando disseram que eu sabia guardar segredo, devemos ajudar e respeitar as pessoas em suas confidencias. I was glad when they said I could keep a secret, we should help and respect people in their confidences.

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!
