Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Confidence is Contagious

Confidence is Contagious


Motivational Power Quote


Confidence is Contagious    

“Confidence is contagious; so is the lack of confidence.”

Vince Lombardi, football coach      



As I see it . . . . . . .


Confidence is contagious


You can spot a person or a team with confidence. You see it in the way they enter the room, you see it in their presentations and you see it in their actions.


With a sports team you can see it in the way the enter the field of play, the way they play, they come onto the field of play with the expectations that they will win and they play to win.


Confidence is contagious and the degree of your confidence will rub off on the people that you come into contact with.


When a customer is working with a professional with confidence the confidence becomes a major influence on the customer’s decision making to do business with the professional.


On a listing appointment with everything else being equal the seller will choose the sales professional that demonstrates the highest degree of confidence in selling the home.


It’s very interesting to watch the interaction of people that possess a high degree of confidence there is a process of subliminal bonding and mutual trust that grows into a circle of business success.


Confidence is contagious and the confidence that sow you will reap.

I agree completely. Only the truly confident can be truly successful! Knowledge and experience are the key to confidence.

Hi Lou, confidence comes with product knowledge , you have to know the product before

you can sell yourself. No matter what it is, the more you know about it, the more confidence in selling it. 

You have to believe in what you are doing.

As one who has overcome fear, there is none better to say this than the great Lombardi. Talk about a man who lived what he taught, it send chills down my spine thinking about hearing these words come out of his mouth!

You are in constant motion. You are either moving forward or backward. Moving forward creates more confidence to pick up the pace. When you move backward you continue to lose confidence and that cycle also picks up the pace. Do not get caught in that trap!

Amen with this one, Lou. If we are confident those around us will be as well. We need to inspire confidence in our buyers and sellers as well!
