New starters in business and some worthy courses often display interest in their course at the beginning but usually fail to go through the process, especially when challenged or in time of crisis. Challenges and difficulties would come for the man, but he uses self-confidence to face and conquer them. Once he has defined his goal and decide his course, the self-confident man hardly willy-nilly, but go straight into action so as not to disappoint self and the people who count on him. He looks within, rely upon inner strength and will to forge out a winning way. Every great encounter of life, and small ones sometimes, need a good douse of self-confidence. Unbounded, unshaken faith in oneself makes one bold, which is a great prerequisite in all great undertakings. Excellence is not attained by looking over and over at the self, rather by plunging self with resolve into doing those things critics thought you could not do, doing it with a master stroke. The estimate a man passes on himself defines the man, and there lies his self-confidence.
