It is About Sharing

Knowledge is for sharing. Do not keep your knowledge to yourself alone. Let it grows. The more you share, the more you learn and in the end you become a better person.

Speak With Full of Confidence

There is a big difference between the word “think” and “sure/believe”. While the word “think” indicates uncertainty, doubtful and less confidence, the word “sure/believe”, on the other hand indicates the strong believe and full of confidence.
.
If someone says, “I think I can make it”, it really shows that the person who utter the sentence is not confidence with him/herself. He/she still has some doubt on his/her ability to do it. However, when someone says “I am sure that I can do it” or “I believe I can do it”, that person has full confidence in himself/herself that he/she can do it.
.
Hence, one must use the correct word to describe their feeling. People will have more confidence when we use the word “sure/believe” and less confidence when we use the word “think”. Further, the word “sure/believe” carries more weight that the word “think”.
.
The following are two (2) very classic examples of someone who talks with confidence (Najib) and someone who has doubt of what he says (SI Bedol)
.
“I don’t think he has the names. If he does, I don’t think he would wait to inform the people (Si Bedol when commenting on the cross over MPs from BN to PR)

.
He (Najib) told reporters he “did not have any doubts” and he had always been confident that the Barisan Nasional government would still be in office on Sept 16 (Najib when commenting on the rumours on the take over of government by PR)
.

.
The above two (2) statements shows the different feeling the PM and DPM have over the issue of Pakatan Rakyat takes over the goverment from BN. While Najib shows confidence that the take over will not take place, Si Bedol on the other hand was 50-50 about it. It is further strengthened by the fact that Si Bedol had asked Anwar to make public the list of MPs who are said to crossover to PR. Si Bedol's request, to me, does not serve as a challenge to Anwar but rather showing his no confidence on his own MPs.
