You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, “I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.” You must do the thing you think you cannot do. ~~ Eleanor Roosevelt ~
Trust in yourself that you will succeed. Take chances and know that you have your smarts, instinct and talent on your side. Know that your friends and family are there for you. Know that the more we are courageous, the stronger our courage gets. Accept and learn from your failures. Take responsibility for your actions. Know that giving up is not an option. Giving up is the easy way out of difficult situations. Believe in yourself and trust in each other and you will do well.
“Like seeds planted in the depths of our souls, our dreams are at the center of who we really are. Our mission and our right is to nurture them and to allow them to grow. To follow your dreams takes courage, action, persistence, time and patience, but most of all, you must first believe in them. Believing in your dreams means that you trust your aspirations exist for a reason and the reason is your calling. Believing in your dreams means that you hold true that everything is possible and you can manifest the life and experiences you desire.
We know that dreaming is a form of planning. We know that everything we enjoy and appreciate around us – every advancement and contribution to society – developed from the commitment, perseverance, and belief in our dreams.” ― Melia Keeton-Digby, The Heroines Club: A Mother-Daughter Empowerment Circle
