Confidence is the wall of strength you build within yourself from the weighty bricks of your burdens, the buckets laden with your fears & the mortar of fortitude in which you push yourself beyond the limits & limitations of your life to date! It is only when you still persist even though you may have your doubts, taking the chance even though you haven’t taken that chance before, that you will in fact develop this skill!
Confidence is the armor you will develop through believing in yourself enough to wage your battles, take on your daily challenges & hone your life skills . . confidence is born only in self-love & built-in self-assurance!
Confidence fights past your fear, overwhelms your doubts & stands at the edge of each precipice imagined without succumbing to worry! You cannot build the confidence you need by living in the constant safety of what you already know you have or can conquer!
Confidence comes only when you dare go beyond the safety of your comfort zones!

As Pastor Bob, of Calvary Chapple in Ft Lauderdale said in his message this morning (6.17.13) confidence goes beyond self and comes from believing by faith in God. Always have someone(s) that you look up to for counsel so that you can raise up those that be below you looking up. Confidence should breed accountability. Accountability of the power we were given thru confidence.
Great thoughts, Cheryl, my lovely friend! 🙂 Dick
