Chapter 5, Page 17, Book 17



With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts

Eleanor Roosevelt

We are what we believe we are

If you don't believe in yourself, nobody else will. Have a little more confidence.

Cathy Moriarty

Confidence is a strong powerful force that gives us ability to conquer life’s obstacles and it’s up to each of us to keep the fire going in times of doubt.

Living your life consistent with your deepest values is essential when it comes to keeping up your confidence.  Self esteem is like a bank account. When you live your values with integrity, you are making deposits into the bank of self esteem. We can be rich or poor. We are the ones who decide how many deposits we make.


The more you like yourself, the less you are like anyone else, which makes you unique.

Walt Disney

Confidence is not a fixed attribute; it’s the outcome of the thoughts we think and the actions we take. No more; no less. It is not based on your actual ability to succeed at a task but your belief in your ability to succeed. 

Each one of us is unique, special and wonderfully made. No two of us are alike,  Even if we’re different from those around us, confidence allows us to face life with boldness, openness, and honesty. It enables us to live without worry and to feel safe. It enables us to live authentically. We don't have to pretend to be somebody we're not, because we are secure in who we are.

To consider others better than yourself, is not to say you have no place; it is to say that you know your place.


The most valuable things in life are not measured in monetary terms. The really important things are not houses and lands, stocks and bonds, automobiles and real state, but friendships, trust, confidence, empathy, mercy, love and faith. 

Bertrand Russell

Confidence in our abilities is a good thing to have. It is essential especially when we are dealing with difficult tasks.

There is such a thing as confident and then Over confident. WE must know the difference. Oh WOW , I like that graphic that says: When you need something to believe in, START with yourself.

Someone said: Be yourself, everyone else is taken.

I like that quote that originals are worth more than a copy. And i think this goes along with it, "Each one of us is unique, special and wonderfully made. No two of us are alike, Even if we’re different from those around us, confidence allows us to face life with boldness, openness, and honesty."
