The difference between success and failure often boils down one thing: confidence. If you take two men of equal abilities, with one having confidence and the other lacking, the confident man will be more successful nearly every time.

It leads men to plan battles that change the course of history. It leads men to initiate relationships with beautiful women. In short, it allows men to maximize their God-given abilities.

Life will almost never go according to plan. When plans get disrupted, it’s easy to make excuses and resign yourself to failure. It’s much harder to adapt and persevere. But, when things fall apart, those who are able to adapt and persist often succeed at a much higher level than if things had gone according to plan. Winners find a way, losers find an excuse.
