"Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny."
--- Frank Outlaw
"Thought is at the bottom of each progress or retrogression, of all success or failure, of all is desirable or undesirable in human life. The type of thoughts we entertain both creates and draws conditions that crystallize about it, conditions exactly the same in nature as is the thought that gives them form, thoughts are forces and each create of its kind, whether we realize it of not. Like creates like, and like attracts like. And it is continuously working in every human life."
--- James Allen Wallace
What we think, believe and imagine about ourselves determines exactly our personality and the security with which we cope with life. All thoughts we retain in our minds influence our personality and motives. The more we hold them, the stronger they become and the more they control our actions. Thoughts of insecurity, uncertainty, fear, and failure build a weak, negative and insecure mind, therefore a weak personality.
Be sure about yourself, or better yet be confident, for it is the main and first step all of us need to acquire what we want. Being confident consists of believing in yourself - that you are sure you will achieve whatever you set in your mind, regardless of all the obstacles you have in front of you, even if we don't have the required tools. Attitude is everything!
All the knowledge or education you acquire doesn't matter, if you don't trust and believe in yourself. All you pretend to do or obtain will be in vain. Maybe think of it this way: a car's wheels are to the tires what confidence is to our achievements.
Take control of your life! Monitor, constantly and daily, your thoughts and guide them toward your goals. Never, never accept, (not even for a second) negative thoughts that take you away from your peace, happiness and your dreams.
"People only see what they are prepared to see."
--- Ralph Waldo Emerson

I emphasize about thought, self esteem and confidence because I am truly convinced that be secure or confident is the main and most important thing we need to learn in order to be able to accomplish everything; I hope it can be helpful and benefit somebody.
