You must try as hard as you can to overcome difficulties in life. Stand up and believe in yourself so that you will be able to follow your dreams.


Does "believe in yourself" sound good in the above? Is it better to change it to "have confidence in yourself?"

Besides, is "follow your dream" interchangeable with "pursue your dreams?" Thanks.
Yes, it sounds fine; it is more consonant with 'follow your dreams' than is 'have confidence...'. Yes, either follow or pursue.
Thanks, Mister.

To make sure, what does "believe in yourself" refer to? I don't think it's equal to "believe yourself," right? For me, it's close to "have confidence in yourself." Am I off the mark?
