Direction: Read the following passage and answer the questions based on it.
Honest self-criticism plays a vital role to purify our souls and to light the path of blissful success. The Holy Quran says: Truly he has succeeded who purifies it. And Truly, he has failed who defiles it. In fact, self criticism seems like a fairly straight-forward concept. It means acknowledging that we have committed a sin, whether against ourselves or other, be it Our Creator or anyone or anything in creation. For most of us, such a confession is an incredibly tough thing to do. Pride prevents us from owning our faults, especially before people when it is necessary. It behoves us to recall that being honest with ourselves is actually a way to enjoy life, rather than make it tougher. It is a fact that the best way to prevent ourselves from committing haram acts is to really investigate whether or not such activities are permissible in Islam and to refrain from doing them if they are not permissible

When you are at Nationals for the first time and step up on the block for your race, confidence is the belief in your ability to race up to your capabilities. Research on elite athletes across sports suggests that a high level of self-confidence, as well as the ability to maintain that high level over time, is a factor they have in common.

Contrary to what most people think,people who have high self-confidence sometimes doubt themselves or their abilities; elite athletes report feelings of apprehension and pressure prior to competition but still perform well.
