Everyone has a different definition of self-confidence – whether it’s being self-assured that you needn’t seek the approval of others, not having to put others down just to make you feel good about yourself, or having it in you to take that leap into unknown territory.

It may take months or even years. But rest assured that with hard work, comes the bliss and the realisation that you actually did it.
