One of the most important steps towards empowerment is having a reasonable belief in yourself and your abilities. Self-confidence plays a key role in your growth and development as an individual.
One of the main reasons people fail to evolve and grow is due to a lack of self confidence. It is not for a lack of strength or even for the lack of trying. As individuals we all have our weak moments, but we must never let go of self-confidence. Confidence is believing that in spite of what you might come up against you will overcome and achieve success.
