"Somehow I can’t believe there are any heights that can’t be scaled by a man who knows the secret of making dreams come true. This special secret, it seems to me, can be summarized in four C’s. They are Curiosity, Confidence, Courage, and Constancy and the greatest of these is Confidence. When you believe a thing, believe it all the way, implicitly and unquestionably."

Believe in the Power of your Success
When your success and your achievements ALWAYS appear insignificant or mediocre to someone, no matter how close or dear they are to you, it's time you realize that it's not you void of success-- it just means that you should stop evaluating your success with their perspective, because they will never be satisfied. Because they don't know how hard you've worked or how badly you've wanted this. STOP down-trodding yourself! STOP degrading yourself! You ARE good enough. And you deserve every bit of this success. YES, it IS infact, success. No matter how tiny or how big, it is still an achievement and you have STILL worked hard to achieve it. DON'T let anyone tell you that this is not big enough and not something to be proud of. Don't let them tell you you've still got to work harder to get to bigger heights. Yes, you DO have to work harder and achieve bigger things, but it's just as important to acknowledge and appreciate your little achievements, to pat yourself on the back and say. "Good job, you! You've done so well. I know you can do it the next time around as well. Just like you've succeeded this time, you will the next time as well. I have faith in you. I believe in you." If you've achieved something in life, success of any sort, any height, be it competitions in school or heading a youth conference, accept it and be happy with it and move forward. Work even harder but acknowledge within yourself that you are a successful person and will strive for continued success. Believe in yourself. Don't evaluate yourself from others' perspectives. Just don't. They will never see what it took for you to get where you are; the emotional struggles, the constant fight with yourself to stay motivated. Only you know what it took. Only you know the real price of this success. Believe in it. Believe in yourself. Don't shun your inner voice away. Just don't.
