The Walk-an excerpt

I believe that of the entire possessions one should strive to have in abundance, if there was only one they could choose, it would and should be that of the emotion, the gift of confidence. Confidence has the innate power to propel you to achieve that which many (perhaps you’d be included amongst the “many” at this time), even most, would consider impossible or at least unrealistically lofty. Nevertheless, when you believe fully in confidence, you trust without reservation the outward highest manifestations of this power-filled word. The word confidence comes from the Latin “confidere” which means to trust, to have faith in. Therefore, to have confidence literally means to have faith in and/or trust in something or someone being true, being real, possessing the “stuff” necessary to get the promised job done, the desired end result. So is confidence something that’s innate, a “cheap thing,” a randomly bestowed gift to a “lucky few?” Fortunately that’s not how it works. If it did, the material changes and gains our world has experienced would have died years ago in a mass grave of “could-have-beens”. The power of confidence is within the grasp of all but all must first know the way of possessing it. Aristotle, the Greek philosopher (born around 384 B.C.) said, I believe correctly that “we are what we repeatedly do. Excellence therefore is not an act but a habit.” Wow!!! I don’t know about you but that thrills me when I reflect upon that. That tells me that I have the ultimate control to be and achieve anything my heart desires (again, because they were “factory installed” in me by divine design in the first place) and nothing and no one can stand in my way forever if I simply…..simply what you ask. Well, this is where the fork in the road presents itself. This is where most go astray and sadly never discover their “key,” because to discover it requires one to possess confidence and to be worthy of what she requires for anyone to possess her. Without it, you will never take possession of the key, your key and all the inexpressible blessings associated with it. So here goes.
