Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Self-Confidence is Essential

Self-Confidence is Essential

Motivational Power Quote

Self-Confidence is Essential

“Self-confidence is the first requisite to great undertaking.”

Samuel Johnson 1709 – 1784, English Writer, Poet,

Essayist, Literary Critic, Editor


As I see it . . . . . . .

Self-confidence is essential

Your self-confidence . . . . will give you the courage to step out your comfort zone . . . . and to move forward. 

Your self-confidence . . . . will allow you to stretch your thinking and to take on new tasks and responsibility.

Self-confidence is essential . . . . to pursue your goals and to work your way through the obstacles that you encounter.

Your self-confidence . . . . is that little voice that’s inside you telling you “yes I can” and will tell you to “keep going”.

Self-confidence is the self-assurance that you can . . . . and you will do what has to be done successfully.

Being your self-confidence to the surface . . . . be poised in your actions and confidence in the results that you will achieve.

Self-confidence is essential . . . . at the start of a new task and in achieving a successful outcome.

I good with this as long the confidence doesn't morph into arrogance.

Lou, before you can convince others you must first convince yourself! Enjoy your day!

Many people don't have self-confidence, Lou. Maybe that should be you're next lesson. How to get it. And I agree with the others: self-confidence can quickly add up and turn to arrogance.

self confidence truly is essential -- when I think of the progress I have made when I believe in myself; and the lost time and opportunities when I did not -- an amazing difference!

Lou- I believe that if a parent can give a child the gift of self confidence... feeling comfortable in their own skin as well, then they've given them a great gift.

Hello Lou,

And self-confidence grows when you push yourself to do more, be more, learn more!

Right on target, Lou. You can't do anything unless you are confident you can...eventually succeed.
