Does the sun ask itself, "Am I good? Am I worthwhile? Is there enough of me?" No, it burns and it shines. Does the sun ask itself, "What does the moon think of me? How does Mars feel about me today?" No it burns, it shines. Does the sun ask itself, "Am I as big as other suns in other galaxies?" No, it burns, it shines.
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.
Max L. Forman
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
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.
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.
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.
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.

Personal Stories About ‘Confidence’
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...
Being Different And Being Remembered.Submitted by Hannah
I have an 8 year old brother with Down Syndrome. He was born when I was 5. He is my best friend. Everywhere we go people either stop and stare, or are friendly and approach us with nice comments. Either way, we are remembered. And I'm never embarrassed or ashamed.
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...
Stories About Everyday Heroes Who Portray ‘Confidence’
Kristiana SantiagoSubmitted by Ashlyn Tice
I know, I know. EVERYONE says their mom is their hero (heroine, technically), but for me it's really true. She doesn't pity many people and she has shown me that all you need to achieve your dreams is hard work. I thank her for inspiring me each and everyday.

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!
