Building confidence, by Ralph Marston

The confidence to do the big things comes from the experience of willingly and reliably doing the small things. Every moment is your opportunity to build that confidence.

Others can encourage you and support you, yet no one can build your own confidence for you. True confidence is something created for you by your actions.

The confidence you already have comes from the challenges you have successfully faced. Make use of that confidence, and it grows.

Every time you act to create value, you also create increased confidence. No task is too small or unimportant, for every result you work to achieve builds more confidence.

If climbing a mountain seems out of reach, start by climbing a few gentle hills. The confidence you gain will put you on your way to achieving the goals that once seemed so far away.

Today you’ll encounter dozens of situations that can build your confidence. The more you choose to do, the higher you’ll be able to reach, with real and lasting confidence.
