My grandfather taught me the true value of being confident in yourself. If he was faced with a problem or issue, you knew he would figure out a way to solve it — he just had this quiet confidence that everything would be alright. His example has helped me to remain calm in tense or uncertain situations throughout my life. Problems constantly come up, but there is always a solution.
