Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. Thank you. Several days ago I wrote I wrote the article, Thoughts and Quotes that Inspire Confidence. Today, I will present this article in video presentation format. Below is a brief excerpt from the article.
“Recently I changed my Facebook Cover photo. In this picture I included a quote that has been and continues to be an encouragement and a source of inspiration. I have shared this quote in many of the articles that I wrote and published on Second Chance to Live in the early years. The quote: “If you advance confidently in the direction of your dreams and endeavor to live the life that you have imagined…you will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.” Henry David Thoreau
I have been thinking about the quote and the words, “If you advance confidently in the direction…” The word “if” speaks to me in that I have to be committed to the process. If I do not commit myself to the process, my journey will end. Through being committed to process, a door continues to stay open to me. The word “advance” reminds me to take action, to continue to take action. Action, that is intentional and focused. With reference to another word in the quote, I have been doing research on the word confidently. One body of thought is that confidence occurs over a period of time with repeated attempts and successes. Confidence building is therefore an ongoing process.
Advancing confidently implies that I not give up in the face of seeming discouragement, setbacks or adversity.”
I have also included the quotes from an article that I wrote in November 2013, Do Not Give Up on Your Dreams or Your Destinies — Quotes that Inspire
