If you don't have faith in what you do, you probably won't do the best job of it whether that be anything from creating art work, revising for an exam or working at a new job.
Sometimes others will spot our potential before we even realise it ourselves, which is fine. But that does not mean you have to wait for the approval or recognition from your friends before you actively pursue whatever it is you want to do.  Sometimes you know what you are capable of, you just need that extra push and motivation. If that is the case for you then work on being your own motivation. Think about how great it will feel knowing you have accomplished what you have wanted to do. Ask yourself: If somebody else accomplished what I wanted do would I be impressed? If yes, then you know you're on to something!" In the book of Hebrews 11:1 we learn that: "faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen." In other words this means that faith is believing that things that we hope for will and have come to pass already.

The truth is that not everyone will be pleased or approve of your dreams but that should not stop you from following your desires. If you feel a heavy burden to accomplish something that will benefit you as well as other people, God most likely placed that desire in your heart. The simple fact is that we cannot please everybody and if we spend our lives seeking approval from everyone we will never truly understand the meaning of life or even what it truly means to live. The talent/gift or skill that you have can really help someone during a time of need.

Believe that you are talented.
Believe that you have a gift.
Believe that you have something to offer.

One of the reasons I write is because I know that words hold power. I believe in the power of words. The bible lets us know in Proverbs 18:21 there is life and death in the power of the tongue. Life meaning positivity, joy, happiness. Death meaning negativity, evil, grieving and so forth.
Another thing I strongly believe that can hinder us from not going forth with the abilities we have been given is laziness & inconsistency.

Laziness and inconsistency are two of the most horrible traits to possess, why? Because they prevent you from succeeding and walking in your purpose. Laziness hinders us from achieving so much. There are an incredible number of talented and creative young people in this world who hold back from doing what they love simply because they cannot be bothered or do not have the ability to be consistent in what they do.  You don't have to have sky high confidence in order to accept that you are great at something; just simply acknowledging you have ability is the best thing to start with.
