OM, Purnamata purnamitam purnat purnamutachyate, purnasya purnamataye purnamevavasishyate – Bri.Up V.i.1



Confidence – it cannot be bought.  It has to be developed, a little by little.  Some situations and events in life, make us a more confident person.  But some situations make us lose our confidence. When our expectations are shattered, or when there are repeated failures, we tend to lose our confidence.  It is important to be more confident in adverse situations, but it is difficult too.  Definitely, in such situations, everyone around will be throwing their fears and doubts on us.  But we must be able to steer our life to success, by shrugging off the negative remarks.  A person’s real failure, is the failure of the mind and not of the situation.  First, we should be aware of the infinite capabilities, inherent in us.  When each and every individual is the manifestation of that ‘One Supreme’, then, how can there be difference, in their abilities.  The only difference is, some have used their abilities in a better way, and some have not.  Naturally, we can use it, at any point of time, in our life.  The reason why one does not use his/her ability is because,

  1. They are not aware of their ability.
  2.  They are scared of failure.
  3.  They do not come out of their past failure.

What ignorance is it! By nature we are bestowed with infinite power.  But we limit ourselves to a small circle.  Depending on the result of a few incidents in our life, we decide our nature.  Human birth is meant to realise the infinite power in oneself.  That is why, even when we master a field, we tend to explore more.  This exploration and learning will continue till we feel that, we cannot be limited.  Only confidence can make us explore more and more.

  Success is sure, if we work hard with determination and confidence, keeping in mind our infinite potentialities.
