To grow and know that one is growing towards – that is the source of all strength and confidence in life.
The good thing about confidence gained through progress is that it starts early and keeps getting stronger.
You gain confidence not by being the best or being extremely skilled at something, but at getting better at something. Progress equals gaining confidence.
Pick whatever hobby you like and work on your skills, your confidence will boost! Confidence is about knowing that you are actually working on becoming a better person, it is not based on being the perfect person.
Never discourage anyone…..who continually makes progress, no matter how slow.
Don’t discourage people that are working on themselves! Motivate them or leave them alone but don’t you dare to speak low of someone who actually tries and makes a difference, no matter how small.
Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible.
While there is nothing wrong with being conform to the mass every now and then, especially when it is your honest opinion, you should always try to question the norm.
Why? Because a mass is way more sluggish than an individual and being sluggish contradicts making progress!
You want to make progress, don’t you? Well then don’t give a fuck and just go for it, no questions asked!
