Confidence is having faith in someone.  Self-confidence is trusting that you have what it takes to handle whatever happens.  You feel sure of yourself and enjoy trying new things, without letting doubts or fears hold you back.  When you have confidence in others, you rely on them.

*   Know you are worthwhile and feel sure of yourself

*   Don’t let fear, doubt or worry stop you

*   Discover your talents and try new things

*   Learn from your mistakes

*   Think positively

*   Trust that all things work together for good

Affirmation:  I am confident.  I appreciate my gifts and give my best.  I enjoy trying new things.  I welcome new possibilities.
