Virtue of the Week: Confidence

Confidence is having faith in someone. 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.

You are practicing confidence when you:

– Know you are worthwhile and feel sure of yourself,

– Don’t let fear, doubt or worry stop you,

– Discover your talents and try new things,

– Learn from your mistakes,

– Think positively, and

– Trust that all things work together for good.


I am confident. I appreciate my gifts and give my best. I enjoy trying new things. I welcome new possibilities.

The Family Connection was established in 2005 by the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands as an early-childhood initiative. The mission of TFC is to strengthen the community child care and early education infrastructure in the USVI by building awareness of the importance of early learning and development for success and working with community agencies to promote quality care and education.

One of its efforts is the Virtues Project, an international initiative focused on building peaceful and caring communities.

The Source supports the Virtues Project. We will publish one of the virtues developed by the project each week.
