Confidence is having faith in yourself and in someone else. Self-confidence is trusting that you have what it takes to handle whatever happens. You feel sure of yourself and enjoy trying new things, without letting doubts or fears hold you back. When you have confidence in others, you rely on them.

Confidence, Raising Mindful Kids, Inspiring Greatness


Fears, doubts, worries, the opinions of others hold us back when we do not have confidence. We worry about making a mistake, we don’t take on new challenges and we are affected by what others think or say.


  • feel sure of yourself even if you win, fail, succeed or not
  • try new things and discover what you are good at
  • think positively, believe in yourself and your abilities
  • learn from your challengs and mistakes
  • celebrate your successes


“I am confident. I love to try new things and do my best. I appreciate my gifts and abilities. I welcome new possibilities. I trust all things work together for good. ”


  1. When do you feel most confident?
  2. When do you need confidence the most?
  3. What are you best at? What gave you the confidence to try or do it the first time?
  4. Is there anone that helps to encourage confidence in you?

Think positively! Go for it! Know you can!



Dear Mrs.Woloszanskyj,

I am confident in my singing! I went for an audition for Canada’s Got Talent on September 30th, The results were going to come in October 31st. I was very confident I would get in, But sadly I didn’t. But, That didn’t stop me! I didn’t give up! I believe that everything happens for the best. All thanks to you! If you weren’t there to post all these amazing things up, and lead our class to a positive path, I would never be like this now.

I really think that confidence plays a big role in our lives. I learnt this messagea while back at my science competition. We came 1st place!!!! Yet, the entire time I felt so negative about how I did which lowered my confidence. From that, I did learn to keep my hopes high regardless of any situation. Due to the fact that I am a very strong beleiver in God, I agree with Pooja – “Everything happens for the best”.
