Self-confidence is like a lion hidden within you. The moment you call on this lion, magic begins to happen, all impossible things start becoming possible. This painting is a part of the series on my core values.
"The most beautiful thing you can wear is confidence." - Blake Lively
Self-confidence is one of me core values. Some time back I decided to create some paintings that speak of my core values. This required a lot of thinking and problem-solving. Core values are not concrete objects like a tree of flower or something tangible that I could draw or paint. How do you portray self-confidence? It is not a concrete object. Instead it is an intangible virtue that a human being possesses. After much thinking, I figured out how does my self-confidence make me feel? What kind of strength and resole does it give me? Hence, came the image of a lion representing self-confidence.
To me, believing in yourself is the first step to accomplishing anything in life. Life is not easy for the best of us. In fact, when we read or view the success stories of celebrities or famous people who have reached the pinnacle of success, we seldom know about the failures, setbacks or struggles they have endured.
I believe, if we awaken the lion of self-confidence within our hearts, it will give us the much needed courage to keep going.

Knowing where one wants to go, setting the goal and focusing on it are important in order to succeed. If one can eliminate distractions and stay focused on a single goal, success is not hard to attain. Sometimes it takes a young six-year old to remind us of this. It is based on a true story.
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
