I Have Confidence



As I was running this morning, for some reason the song  “I Have Confidence” came to mind.  This song is from one of my favorite movies of all time, The Sound of Music.   

Maria sings this song on her way to The Von Trapp family, on her way to her new life.  She’s anxious and excited at the same time.  She doubts she has enough courage to face the new challenge.  She tells herself that she must dream of the things that she is seeking.  She tells herself strength lays within her, and that she must wake up and stop all the doubts and worries.

This is an ultimate song of confidence and positive self talk.  I want to share the lyrics with you, as I believe many of you can relate and hope that you find inspiration, joy, and of course confidence in these words.

What will this day be like?  I wonder…
What will my future be? I wonder…
It could be so exciting
To be out in the world, to be free
My heart should be wildly rejoicing
Oh what’s the matter with me?

I’ve always longed for adventure
To do the things I’ve never dared
Now here I’m facing adventure
Then why am I so scared?

Captain with seven children
What’s so fearsome about that?

Oh I must stop all these doubts
All these worries
If I don’t I just know I’ll turn back
I must dream of the things I am seeking
I am seeking the courage I lack

The courage to serve them with reliance
Face my mistakes without defiance
Show them I’m worthy
And while I show them
I’ll show me! So!

Let’s get rid of all their problem
I’ll do better than my best
I have confidence
They’ll put me to the test
But I’ll make them see
I have confidence in me

Somehow I will impress them
I will be firm but kind
And all those children
Heaven bless them
They will look up to me
And mind me

With each step I am more certain
Everything will turn out fine
I have confidence the world can be mine
They’ll have to agree I have confidence in me

I have confidence in sunshine
I have confidence in rain
I have confidence that spring will come again
Besides what you see I have confidence in me!

Strength doesn’t lie in numbers
Strength doesn’t lie in wealth
Strength lies in nights of peaceful slumber
When you wake up
Wake up!

All I trust I give my heart to
All I trust becomes my own
I have confidence
In confidence alone

Read these words and sing this song whenever you are in doubt of your confidence.

    Wow! Thanks for a great post. It’s amazing how timely this was for me. I recently took a huge risk to pursue my dreams and found myself feeling much like Julie Andrews does as the beginning of this song. Your post made (and watching the video) made me realize that I have enough talent and confidence to achieve what I have set out to achieve.

    Thanks again
