Let’s talk about confidence. Confidence involves believing in yourself and having a positive and correct self-image. It is an internal picture of you that is visible on the outside.

Confidence comes from a correct self-image!
The confidence you project affects how the world will react to you. The effects of confidence result in greater confidence being built. It is a continuous upward cycle of success.

It is found at its greatest height, depth, and breadth in emotion.

When a young man in eighth grade attends a dance, he may be too nervous to go across the room to ask a girl to dance because he doesn’t want to be rejected. His palms get sweaty because he doesn’t know how to dance, and he is afraid of embarrassing himself.

However, if he overcomes his fear and confidently asks a girl to dance, he will set himself apart from the others whose fear prevented them from acting.

If you are confident and comfortable with yourself, even if you may not know how to do something, you have an edge in being able to work real magic.

What we want people to understand about confidence is that it is not something that comes from the outside.

Confidence is always something that comes from within.

So many people are waiting for some external force to validate them so they can feel good about themselves, but that is not where it can be found.

Confidence is yours now.
Total self-confidence is ensured by doing what is necessary to build it.

Go step-by-step until you have developed the confidence you need.

Stand tall, find your voice, and do that which seems impossible. If you follow these steps, you will build your confidence, and you will believe that you can do anything that you desire.
