This means, "believe in yourself," "have faith in yourself," or "believe in myself" (can be myself or yourself depending in if you're saying it to yourself or someone else).
Note: Because this selection contains some special Japanese Hiragana characters, it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.
善意 is a word that means good intentions, good will, or to things done in good faith in Chinese, Japanese, and old Korean Hanja.
It's sort of the reason you do good deeds, or the desire you have inside yourself to do the right thing.
This can also be translated as benevolence, kindness, virtuous mind, positive mindset, or favorable sense.
善意 is also used in legal context for things that are done in good faith (regardless of outcome).
In Japanese, this can be the personal name Yoshi or Yoshii.
信心 is a Chinese, Japanese, and Korean word that means confidence, faith, or belief in somebody or something.
The first character means faith, and the second can mean heart or soul. Therefore, you could say this means "faithful heart" or "faithful soul."
In Korean especially, this word has a religious connotation.
In old Japanese Buddhist context, this was a word for citta-prasāda (clear or pure heart-mind).
In modern Japan (when read by non-Buddhists), this word is usually understood as, "faith," "belief" or "devotion."
See Also: Self-Confidence
自信 is created by simply putting the character for "faith/believe/confidence" with the character for "oneself" in front of it.
The literal translation holds the same meaning in English, Chinese and Japanese.
It's like a self-affirmation to say, "you can do it."
Some may also use this to mean self-esteem or a sense of self-worth. 自信 is also how to say, "believe in oneself."
See Also: Confidence
自恃 means self-reliance but is often used to mean self-confidence or the state of being self-assured.
Basically this means you can rely on yourself (with a slight suggestion that others can rely on you as well).
The first character means "oneself" while the second means "to rely upon."
虎 is the character for tiger in Chinese, old Korean Hanja, and Japanese Kanji.
Since you already know what a tiger is, here's some trivia: If you look at the Japanese pronunciation, you might remember a movie called "Tora Tora Tora" which was the code word used to initiate the attack on Pearl Harbor. It simply means "Tiger Tiger Tiger."
In Chinese culture, the tiger is considered to be the king of all animals (in much the way we see the lion in western culture).
From the Chinese Zodiac, if you were born in the year of the tiger, you . . .
Have a strong personality.
Are full of self-confidence.
Don't like to obey others.

All of our calligraphy wall scrolls are handmade.
When the calligrapher finishes creating your artwork, it is taken to my art mounting workshop in Beijing where a wall scroll is made by hand from a combination of silk, rice paper, and wood.
After we create your wall scroll, it takes at least two weeks for air mail delivery from Beijing to you.
Allow a few weeks for delivery. Rush service speeds it up by a week or two for $10!
When you select your calligraphy, you'll be taken to another page where you can choose various custom options.
The wall scroll that Sandy is holding in this picture is a "large size"
single-character wall scroll.
We also offer custom wall scrolls in small, medium, and an even-larger jumbo size.
Professional calligraphers are getting to be hard to find these days.
Instead of drawing characters by hand, the new generation in China merely type roman letters into their computer keyboards and pick the character that they want from a list that pops up.
There is some fear that true Chinese calligraphy may become a lost art in the coming years. Many art institutes in China are now promoting calligraphy programs in hopes of keeping this unique form of art alive.
Even with the teachings of a top-ranked calligrapher in China, my calligraphy will never be good enough to sell. I will leave that to the experts.
The same calligrapher who gave me those lessons also attracted a crowd of thousands and a TV crew as he created characters over 6-feet high. He happens to be ranked as one of the top 100 calligraphers in all of China. He is also one of very few that would actually attempt such a feat.
