DFW Teen Voice Prosperous & Thriving Youth "Ingredient of Self-Esteem"

BY: Patricia Ross Teen Voice

Be confident in what you believe. First, you must determine what you believe in within your thoughts. Your thoughts become your belief system. If you don’t have a belief system to operate your life line then you don’t have confidence. Do you know when you believe in positive thoughts that positive things will happen to you.

Confidence is defined as:



full trust; belief in the powers, trustworthiness, or reliability of a person or thing: We have every confidence in their ability to succeed.


belief in oneself and one's powers or abilities; self-confidence; self-reliance; assurance: His lack of confidence defeated him.


certitude; assurance: He described the situation with such confidence that the audience believed him completely

Believe is defined as:

verb (used without object)


to have confidence in the truth, the existence, or the reliability of something, although without absolute proof that one is right in doing so: Only if one believes in something can one act purposefully.

Confidence means you can see yourself doing and acting upon which you believe. You participate in your own life. You are actively involved in your own life. You are not waiting on someone else to get things done for you.

Self-Esteem can provide confidence to you. Along with having a positive out- look on your life. Even when you think things are going wrong a positive snap shot image of what you really need and a pep talk to yourself can change your circumstances. Today, give yourself a pat on the back and encourage yourself. Encourage yourself for who you are and know that without having confidence and self-esteem you would have not come this far in your life. Your own goals and dreams would not be possible or successfully completed unless you have channeled confidence and self-esteem. With your confidence and self-esteem channeled directly toward setting and reaching your goals and dreams they do come true.


You may be the person who goal was to get a job or advance on the job. You may be the person who has completed their career aspirations. You may be the individual who started their own business. Or you decided to purchase a house. Whichever the case these are examples of having the confidence within to achieve and accomplish.

So, regardless the circumstances look within to pull and draw upon your confidence. People have building blocks to the foundation of their life what is yours? You may ask the question where do you find or get confidence.

1. Positive words spoken or read in your life.

2. Positive family, friends and teachers.

3. Positive ministry teachings and Biblical principles.

4. Your Creator an Higher Source

Just know you can obtain and get the ingredients called confidence placed in your life. Once you receive the confidence you need in your life you can stand on the fact that you will be victorious. Victory by seeing tangible results that will manifest in your life as accomplishments.
