COLOURS OF LIFE

BY GRACE C. ESPIRITUSANTO

“Confidence, like art, Never comes from having all the answers. It comes from being open to all the questions’” — Earl Gary Stevens

Confidence is something I sometimes miss to have. When there are things to be discussed, explain,  or just converse… do you ever join or butt in? or do you back out and find an excuse not to be included for you are afraid of a lot of things?

Most of us would pretend to know a lot things but when faced with the worst scenario, we cannot muster the courage and confidence we always boast about. Sometimes we feel that  we are not worthy enough to join others intellectuals in making conversations because we do not have a Master’s Degree or Phd’s but we never know that there are times when plain common sense and confidence is all that we need to do or make things right.

As a child, I never  had any idea what confidence is all about, the only thing I  remember is our parents telling us  “never to stop learning and doing new things; that “if others can do it, then, we can do it better.”

“You’ve got to take the initiative to play your game. In the decision set, confidence is the difference.” — Chris Evert
