Real Confidence

The strongest confidence is quiet, inner confidence. The surest sign of inherent weakness and lack of confidence is the need to boast.

Practice humility and what you will build is confidence. The less you care about impressing others, the more impressed they will be.

Be honest and authentic (tulin/original), and your confidence will grow. The more fully you realize that there's no need to hide who you are, the more confident you'll become in every endeavor (usaha/ikhtiar).

Approach each task with understanding and patience. Don't let arrogance infect your attitude, for arrogance is a feeble (lemah) imitation of confidence that drives real confidence away.

Know where you are going and why. True confidence flows naturally from a clear sense of purpose.

There is a solid, genuine confidence within you, and it can empower all that you do. Live and act to nourish and grow that confidence, and it will surely serve you well.

-Ralph Marston
