Confidence. And, what does it mean?

There are many people in the world today that can have confidence. They can be cocky, or maybe not even in the right frame of mind, and knowing exactly who they really are. That's absolutely nothing wrong with confidence. But it's all about how you apply it. And what do you mean behind it?

When you go into a match, and you are facing an opponent, do not make the assumption that the person that you are facing is either 10 steps ahead of you, or 10 steps behind you. Always know that the person that you are facing is always thinking, just like you, to win. Even if you desire to think that they're not thinking about the will to win, then you are being foolish. And, it doesn't take a fool to be a winner. It takes someone who has confidence but ultimately has to have respect for the person that they are facing. You should always pay homage to who you are facing. But never for once forsake, who you are, and what you are, and what you are ultimately made for.

You have something that is special within you. And, it takes pure confidence to understand that you can do it if you desire to do it. But, you got to want to do it. You got to believe that you can do it. You got to know that there's nothing on earth, under the sun, can stand in your way. That my friend is confidence. egotistical, being ego, having an ego. Just remember, egos don't fly. But confidence can take you beyond the stars until you can start leaving footprints on the moon.
