Build Confidence

Confidence is the result of hours and days and weeks and years of constant work and dedication.
Roger Staubach

Confidence is a plant of slow growth.
English Proverb

Plant the seeds of expectation in your mind; cultivate thoughts that anticipate achievement. Believe in yourself as being capable of overcoming all obstacles and weaknesses.
Norman Vincent Peale

Lack of confidence is not the result of difficulty; the difficulty comes from a lack of confidence.
Seneca

The biggest waste of mental energy is spent on self-criticism. To accomplish more, redirect your mental energy by continuously reminding yourself of all the things you do right. Belief in yourself will increase your confidence and credibility.
Brian Koslow

Leadership

The most essential quality for leadership is not perfection, but credibility. People must be able to trust you, or they won’t follow you. How do you build credibility? Not by pretending to be perfect, but by being honest.
Rick Warren

Leadership is by example, not talk.
Bill Walsh

Leaders make ideas tangible and real to others, so they can support them. For no matter how marvelous the vision, the effective leader must use a metaphor, a word or a model to make that vision clear to others.
Warren Bennis

Treat others as we want to be treated ourselves. People do not willingly follow leaders who are unconcerned with how they are treated.
Major General William Cohen

A leader can empower people by expecting more of them than they think they can possibly achieve. It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy – if the leader really believes that people can do more, they’ll begin to expect more from themselves.
Robert Townsend

Integrity

Prefer a loss to a dishonest gain, the one brings pain at the moment, the other for all time.
Chilon

To maintain integrity, do not make tough decisions alone. Ask questions, receive counsel, reflect and take a long-term view.
Adrian Gostick and Dana Telford

I am sustained by knowing that I am doing what is right.
Desmond Tutu

Protect your credibility. One of the highest – and most beneficial – accolades for a manager is the comment, “If he says so, you can bank on it.”
James Hayes

I hope people will say I was a good man who did right. I would hope they would remember that I did play good golf for a period of time. The most important thing is to have people see that I’ve been reliable and have been good for the game of golf as well as a good citizen.
Byron Nelson
