The first step in achieving any dream is believing you have what it takes to make it happen. You need to find something to depend on and gain strength from, whether that’s an experience you went through or a compliment a stranger told you five years ago. Without that vital sliver of faith in yourself, you wouldn’t be able to move mountains (even when you have the power to). Confidence can be your greatest tool in the face of uncertainty; it is a very powerful force to be reckoned with. It can take years to mold and fortify, but when you do, you’re bound to survive anything.
