“If you don't have confidence, you'll always find a way not to win.”  ~ Carl Lewis

“Optimism means expecting the best, but confidence means knowing how to handle the worst. Never make a move if you are merely optimistic.” ~ The Zurich Axioms

Action is a great restorer and builder of confidence. Inaction is not only the result, but the cause, of fear. Perhaps the action you take will be successful; perhaps different action or adjustments will have to follow. But any action is better than no action at all." ~ Norman Vincent Peale

4 WHYs of True Success

“Confidence... thrives on honesty, on honor, on the sacredness of obligations, on faithful protection and on unselfish performance. Without them it cannot live." ~ Franklin D. Roosevelt

"A good leader inspires others with confidence in him or her; a great leader inspires them with confidence in themselves." ~ Unknown

 

Keys to Building Confidence

  1. Never stop learning and growing. Become an expert in your field. The more knowledge or skill you have in any area, the less fear it holds. The lower your level of ignorance, the more confidence you will have. The more time you take to think through a situation, the more capable you will be of dealing with it when it arises.

  2. Get the facts. Pay attention to detail. Double check everything. Most fear is rooted in ignorance. The more you know about what you face,  the more courage you will have. The more time you take to think through a situation, the more capable you will be of dealing with it when it arises.

  3. Plan for every contingency. Don't get caught unprepared for unexpected setbacks – it is a mark of weak leadership. Think about what could go wrong long before it does. Be prepared for unexpected setbacks and reversals.

The Key To Your Success

Self-confidence is at the root of every success and achievement. It is by increasing confidence and belief in themselves that many great achievers went from being insecure persons, hesitant to commit to anything, to successful entrepreneurs who are living their dreams.

If you wish to change yourself and achieve more, you need confidence – courage and a strong belief in your ability to succeed. This depends on your ability to act boldly with no guarantees of success.

Be Different and Make a Difference!

Self-confidence is extremely important in almost every aspect of our lives. People who lack self-confidence can find it difficult to become successful.

Confidence breeds confidence. Self-confident people inspire confidence in others. Gaining the confidence of others is a key to success.

The Power of Knowledge

Most fear is rooted in ignorance. The more knowledge or skill you have in any area, the less fear it holds. So, never stop learning and growing. Become an expert in your field. The more you know about what you face, the more courage and confidence you will have naturally.

Get the facts. Double check everything. Be prepared for unexpected setbacks and reversals. The more prepared you are, the more confidence you will have.

Making Effective Presentations

That's the main secret of being a good presenter: you have to be confident to show confidence. You must be inspired by the deep belief in your cause. To have faith in yourself and your message, explore all phases of your subject and ask yourself how your talk will help the audience to get what they want. Careful preparation provides the solid ground you need to support your self-confidence. Tell yourself you can do it, that you are more qualified than any member of the audience to give this particular talk.

The Danger of Overconfidence
