Confidence often comes from progress, no matter how small. If we’ve moved in loops for years, it’s hard to carry a sense of respect and worthiness. Hence, we must strive to fare better, become better, know better than our past selves.
Confidence is necessary for all of us to thrive and succeed. Paradoxically, however, more is not always more—that is, over-confidence is not the path to greater victories and achievements. Often, it’s simply a manifestation of an inflated ego.
Every day we should ask ourselves: In the absence of fear, what will our lives be? Who will we be? What can we achieve? Then remember–we are the ones who let fear live in our minds. Now go and be who are meant to be.
Words are a powerful weapon in the confidence battle. Speak gently to yourself, be forgiving, be understanding. Your mind and thinking should be your best friends not your biggest bullies.
Confidence is… the ability to follow our goals without the world getting in the way.
We are often our hardest critics, but remember: The only person you really need to impress is yourself. The only person you can truly fare against is the person you were yesterday.
Confidence is… knowing that there is always another chance to face the world tomorrow. That it’s never too late to make amends and start anew. Be kind to yourself but don’t give up trying and moving forward.
Confidence is… smiling when you are down; walking tall when all you want is to hide under the table; keeping calm despite feeling the storm inside. Because you are stronger than you often believe.

Don’t confuse my introversion with lack of self-esteem. I know how much I am worth, even though I choose to not flaunt it to the world.
