Does Someone Believe in You?…

So, does someone believe in you when you have something in mind you want to do?  The person who should believe in YOU is YOU!  If you do not believe in yourself or your abilities, then how can anyone else?  And, the confirmation comes – if what you are wanting to accomplish is a PASSION and you think about it…
