It’s a little bit of swagger, a little bit of passion, and it’s a whole lot of grit.
Confidence is earned by doing the tough things that others won’t do because they’re too hard. But that’s part of what makes achievement so satisfying. Digging deep, finding out what you’re made of.
Confidence comes through persevering day after day, in the face of failure. Even when everybody would understand if you quit. You are willing to put everything you’ve got into it because the rewards are so great. And you deserve nothing less.
