Without a humble but reasonable confidence in our own power we cannot be successful nor happy. We should believe in ourselves and have faith in our abilities.

Faith is the most powerful of all forces operating in humanity and when we have it in depth, nothing can pull us down. Our lives are the only meaningful expression of what we believe and in whom we believe. And the only real wealth for any of us, lies in our faith.

The greatest test of faith is when you don't get what you want, but still you are able to say Thank You Lord.-Pastor Matthew Hagee

Confidence is honoring ourselves and taking action to build self-esteem. What we believe, we create. If we believe that we are somehow “not enough”, that is the very image we project.

What we project we also tend to attract. Those who are self-critical, or who feel “less than” others, will tend to draw people and circumstances into their lives that are not in their best interests.

Sometimes we struggle with insecurity because we compare our behind-the-scenes with everyone else’s highlight reel; we tend to be conscious of what others would think.

Faith is to believe what you do not yet see; the reward for this faith is to see what you believe. St. Augustine

We live in a consumer society which sends the message that we never have enough. We feel compelled to acquire things to make us thinner, less wrinkled, more beautiful, powerful etc. The end result often leaves people feeling empty at the end of the day.

Confidence doesn’t come from diet pills, beauty products, or any other “confidence” creator. Confidence is the result of focusing on our natural talents and positive qualities. The more confident we become, the more capable we are. The end result of developing a strong sense of self-worth is that, we begin to naturally attract healthier conditions and healthier relationships.

Oftentimes our hardest experience lead to the greatest moments of our lives. Sometimes when we lose all hope and think this is the end, God would just be smiling from above, telling us to relax because it is just a bend, not the end. Have faith and have a successful life. When we believe something can be done, really believe, our mind will find ways to do it.

Let’s keep the faith, it will all be worth it in the end. Faith is for that which lies on the other side of reason. Faith is what makes life bearable, with all its tragedies, ambiguities and sudden  startling joys.

There is nothing more beautiful and admirable than believing in ourselves. And, remember, what we think and believe about, we bring about!
