So many things in life are contagious if you are around it enough. The statement that Coach Lombardi made about confidence is no different, Some people are born with confidence and it translates to almost everything they do. Others, probably more of us, do not have natural confidence and it has to be learned. I for one, am still trying to learn how to be more confident in many areas of my life.
This statement connects with the idea that I have always told my students, in fact it's a part of what I usually write in their yearbook if they every ask me to write in it. Part of it is always "surround yourself with good people." This is where confidence and the lack of confidence can be contagious. if the people you hang out with are confident people in the things they do, that will help you to be more confident. Especially if those things they are doing are good things. If a group of people, a team, etc., have a common goal or on the same page of helping and supporting each other - that is a very powerful connection for all of them. I think you can really substitute many different words for confidence in the quote. Dedication, teamwork, A positive attitude, etc. What are your thoughts on this quote? Did it get you thinking a little bit I hope?
