Listen to the Story


John was a young man who always struggled with self-confidence. He felt like he was never good enough and that he couldn't accomplish anything good. He often compared himself to others and felt inferior. One day, John's friend encouraged him to start keeping a journal of his successes. At first, John was hesitant, but he decided to give it a try. Every time he accomplished something, no matter how small, he wrote it down in his journal. As he continued to add to his journal, John started to notice a pattern. He realized that he had accomplished more than he gave himself credit for. He began to feel more confident and proud of his achievements. John continued to add to his journal. Whenever he felt discouraged, he would look back at his past successes to remind himself of what he was capable of. He found that his self-confidence grew stronger with each new entry in his journal.
