To be great is to believe in yourself. In my opinion in order to succeed in life that is all that you need. In my experiences in life the one thing that seems to always pull me through is my confidence in myself and what I can do. If you are prepared for anything then you will be able to follow through. If you think about it, you will always be your own toughest critic so if you approve of your performance then most people will too. And only if you appear to be confidant then they will believe you and so will you. Whenever I have a performance I know I will do the best I can and I know that it will turn out fine no matter what. When I step up to the microphone I know I will succeed and in my opinion that is what makes you great, because if you don’t believe in yourself then no one else will.
