Confidence And Courage

"You can do it!"

By Ruth Elizabeth StiffPublished 3 months ago 1 min read
"You can do it!"

“Don’t try to lessen yourself for the world;

let the world catch up to you”

“Don’t hold back!”

“You can do it!”

“Lead the way!”

To a certain degree,

Confidence and Courage

have a lot to do with this.

We need the Confidence to “Be” who we are,

the Courage to “Move Ahead” in our lives.

When we were at school,

the teachers did their best

to never hold us back

but to encourage us to go ahead,

improving all of the time.

Who tried to hold us back?

Maybe a jealous pupil tried to stop us,

holding us back

because ‘they wanted to be first’.

Maybe we held ourselves back

because we lacked Confidence within ourselves.


have Faith in yourself,

the Confidence in your own abilities


show the world how it’s done.
