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)
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.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
Ralph Waldo Emerson
To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Dr. Wayne Dyer
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.
Hold yourself responsible for a higher standard than anybody else expects of you, never excuse yourself.
Henry Ward Beecher
If you believe in yourself and have dedication and pride - and never quit, you'll be a winner. The price of victory is high but so are the rewards.
Confidence, like art, never comes from having all the answers; it comes from being open to all the questions.

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...

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!
