“Self trust is the essence of heroism.”—Ralph Waldo Emerson
I chose this quote because I believe that trusting myself can lead me to succeed in ways I would never have thought possible. Having faith that I can do what I set my mind to, and even enjoy doing it, requires me to think for myself and form my own opinion without being influenced by others.
When I trust myself, I push myself to the point at which I can succeed in what I do. Clinton Davidson says “Just as water rises no higher than itself, so the confidence of others in you will never be greater than the confidence you have in yourself.” Having self-confidence and trusting myself will help me achieve my goals and dreams more easily.
