“Confidence is the bridge between where you are and where you want to go. Don’t be casual about your
confidence or you will become a casualty on the road to your destiny.” – Dr. Keith Johnson
Champions know the secret of positive self-talk. Inside of you is a critic or a coach. Are you a critic or a coach? Do you remember the old rhyme that you said as a kid, “Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me?”
How To Use Words To Gain Confidence
Friend, nothing could be farther from the truth. Words can cause wars and words can stop wars. Words can cause a divorce and words can cause a marriage to be restored. Words can, and do, hurt us. Especially those silent words that you speak to yourself on a daily basis, those words that nobody hears on the outside, but you hear on the inside. If what you say can make you feel bad, then what you say can also make you feel confident on a daily basis. What you are saying about you, your talents, your abilities, your personal worth, and your future is more important than what others are saying about you.Think about this for a moment: When Michael Jordan goes to the foul line with no time left on the clock, facing a one and one, and the team is one point behind, he doesn’t think he will miss that foul shot.
