Self-confidence affirmations based on quotes of successful people

Why self-confidence affirmations? Because as James Allen says below, "The world steps aside for a person who knows where he is going." If you haven't already, it is time to create the world you want. And to do so confidently.

Abraham Lincoln was a failure as a lawyer and as a businessman. He failed in politics more than once. And yet, he kept going. Why? The answer is in his quote below, "You can have anything you want, if you want it badly enough." All the times he could have given up and didn't. It took him a while to find his path, but once he did, he grabbed it with gusto. He didn't back down. Why? Because he wanted it badly enough.

How about you? How badly do you want your dreams?

Your dreams are only wishes unless you take action. Bruce Lee took action and became a legend. As did Michael Jordan. He classifies people as "people who want it to happen, people who wish it to happen, and then people like him...people who make it happen."

Start working with these self-confidence affirmations and know that there's more to success than affirmations alone, but that it's a good place to begin. If you think like successful people, take actions like successful people, it's a good chance you, too, will be successful.

Let's get started by working with self-confidence affirmations that can make a difference in your life.
