The man of self-confidence is a master of destiny. He is positive and affirmative. Swami Vivekananda says, "The history of the world is the history of a few men who had faith in themselves. That faith calls out the divinity within. You can do anything. You fail only when you do not strive sufficiently to manifest infinite power. As soon as a man or a nation loses faith, death comes."
At another place, he said, "Let people say whatever they like, stick to your own convention, and rest assured, the world will be at your feet. They say, Have faith in this fellow or that fellow, but I say, Have faith in yourself first, that's the way. Have faith in yourself. All power is in you. Be conscious and bring it out. Say, I can do everything."
