Why Confidence?

Sometimes, when I say I teach leaders how to elevate their own confidence and that of those they work with, people will look at me as if to say "why is that important?"

In truth, Confidence, and even Contagious Confidence is the glue that will keep you together or let you unravel and fall apart.

If you are confident in your skill and abilities, you can teach others.
If you are confident in your ability to survive, you will find resilience in any situation.
If you are confident in your direction, you will make faster progress.
If you are confident in you, that rubs off on others and they will want to know how you do it.

A lack of confidence will cause you:
- to doubt your own abilities, skills, gifts, and talents
- to move slower
- to be less productive
- to share with others an attitude that is not productive or helpful
- give others a reason to avoid spending time with you, for fear that the attitude will rub off

Contagious Confidence is not only important and valuable, it's critical to your success. Are you feeling confident today? If so, HIGH FIVE! If not, what's standing in your way and how can I help?

Stay Contagious!
