a humble but reasonable confidence in your own
powers you cannot be successful or happy.
~Norman Vincent Peale
in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without
a humble but reasonable confidence in your own
powers you cannot be successful or happy. Formulate
and stamp indelibly on your mind a mental picture
of yourself as succeeding. Hold this picture tenaciously.
Never permit it to fade. Your mind will seek to
develop the picture. Do not build obstacles in
your imagination. Do not be awestruck by other
people and try to copy them. Nobody can be you
as efficiently as you can."

deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our
deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens
us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant,
gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are
you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing
small does not serve the world. There is nothing
enlightened about shrinking so that other people
won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant
to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest
the glory of God that is within us. It is not just
in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let
our own light shine, we unconsciously give other
people permission to do the same. As we are liberated
from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates
