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.
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.
Peter W. Smith
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
Peace holds within itself trust in the Lord, the trust that He governs all things and provides all things, and that He leads towards an end that is good.
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.
There is overwhelming evidence that the higher the level of self-esteem, the more likely one will be to treat others with respect, kindness, and generosity.
BELIEVE IN YOURSELF
You have to believe in yourself, that's the secret. Even when I was in the orphanage, when I was roaming the street trying to find enough to eat, even then I thought of myself as the greatest actor in the world. I had to feel the exuberance that comes from utter confidence in yourself. Without it, you go down to defeat.
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.

Church FriendsSubmitted by Anonymous
I'm a twelve year old girl. Most of you might think this is pretty young, but I'm going into eighth grade. I go to church every Sunday, and every Sunday I sit in youth group. I walk in, and sit in the back. I always thought this is how middle school would be, sitting alone. I had friends, of course, they just...
The Piano Teacher FrancesSubmitted by Bobbie
Each time I see the little boy playing "Twinkle, Twinkle.." on stage, it brings tears to my eyes. My daughter's piano teacher (tragically killed in a home gas explosion) sat at her piano and enhanced each "new artist's" selection as does your artist. She taught 6 year olds through college age students - never...

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!
