If one is estranged from oneself, then one is estranged from others too. If one is out of touch with oneself, then one cannot touch others.
Anne Morrow Lindbergh
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually who are you not to be? You are a child of the universe. You were born to manifest the glory of the universe that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
Give unto me, made lowly wise, The spirit of self-sacrifice; The confidence of reason give, And in the light of truth thy bondman let me live!
He who has faith has... an inward reservoir of courage, hope, confidence, calmness, and assuring trust that all will come out well - even though to the world it may appear to come out most badly.
B. C. Forbes
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)
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.
The question Who am I? is not a philosophical football meant to be kicked around coffeehouses by pseudo-intellectuals. It's a real-life question. Nothing is more important and more relevant than to know who you are.
Be who you are and say what you feel, because in the end those who matter don't mind and those who mind don't matter.
Theodor Seuss Geisel
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.
Hold yourself responsible for a higher standard than anybody else expects of you, never excuse yourself.
Henry Ward Beecher

Personal Stories About ‘Confidence’
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...
I Learned It From The BruisesSubmitted by Anonymous
When I was younger I got into many fights, some lost others won. I went to a city school, the area wasn't the best or the wealthiest. Many nights I would go home and nurse my many bumps, scrapes, gnashes, and bruises. My best companion was a walkman that had a CD by Lil Wayne in it, which I would listen to as I...
Getting Things Up And RunningSubmitted by Phillip McMillen
One summer, I bought an old, cheap, and barely functioning motorcycle. I had almost no mechanical ability nor motorcycle riding experience at the time, but I had the confidence to simply dive in head first and start a new hobby. I started by figuring out how to make the bike run properly, and then moved on to...

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!
