Confidence is a battle each and everyday...will you win on the day, your internal critic, or your external foe; ultimately it is in your hands and your mindset. I will be the first to admit that I lose this battle most days, but with age I am learning what to base my confidence on. You set yourself up for failure if you base it upon others perceptions and certain goal achievements. The hardest person you will ever have to please is yourself, you have to learn to love yourself, faults and all.

I Have Confidence
By: The Sound of Music
What will this day be like?
What will my future be?
It could be so exciting
To be out in the world
To be free
My heart should be wildly rejoicing
Oh whats the matter with me?
I've always longed for adventure
To do the things I've never dared
Now here i'm facing adventure
Then why am I so scared?
Captin with seven children
Whats so fearsome about that?
Oh I must stop all these doubts
All these worries
If I don't i just know i'll turn back
I must dream of the things I am seeking
I am seeking the courage I lack
The courage to serve them with reliance
Face my mistakes without defiance
Show them I'm worthy
And while I show them
I'll show me! So!
Lets get rid of all their problem
I'll do better than my best
I have confidence
They'll put me to the test
But I'll make them see
I have confidence in me
Somehow I will impress them
I will be firm but kind
And all those children
Heaven bless them
They will look up to me
And mind me
With each step I am more certain
Everything will turn out fine
I have confidence the world can be mine
They'll have to agree I have confidence in me
I have confidence in sunshine
I have confidence in rain
I have confidence that spring will come again
Besides what you see I have confidence in me!
Strength doesn't lie in numbers
Strength doesn't lie in wealth
Strength lies in nights of peaceful slumber
When you wake up
All I trust
I give my heart to
All I trust becomes my own
I have confidence
In confidence alone
I have confidence in confidence alone!
Besides what you see I have confidence
