How to Build Lasting Self confidence and Self-Efficacy

“Inaction breeds doubt and fear, action breeds confidence and courage, if you want to conquer fear, do not sit at home and think about it, go out and get busy” Dale Carnegie

Self confidence is a personality trait that all of us need, but seems to confuse and ellude many people.


Authenticity and Honesty

Recently, I see a lot of talk and questions about “Authenticity” on the internet. People asking on forums about “what is authenticity?”, “How can I get authenticity?” — it astonishes me that it isn’t obvious.

“Each time we face our fear, we gain strength, courage, and confidence in the doing.-” Theodore Roosevelt

Honesty and courage go hand in hand, they help develop self-confidence in a person.


It’s only when we are honest with ourselves that we can express to the rest of the world that we live with integrity.


There is only one way to obtain knowledge — study and the work that goes with it.

Speaking clearly and Honestly leads to something extremely valuable

Your writing reflects your inner world whether you know it or not.


Tricksters on the internet use deceptive expressions, blatant lies, and promises that sound just right for everybody. They promise all the things that everybody dreams of having — money will buy almost all the things we lack in the physical world. When we don’t have those things, life becomes uncomfortable and after a while we will listen to anybody who might just have a solution to our problems — dishonest people play on those desperate needs that many of us experience in life. They tell you that they will give you what you want, so long as you give them something small. like a few bucks to get you into the program, to buy the book on wealth, or some other quickly plastered together piece of work that has nice wrapping paper.
