Self-Confidence and Authority

Post written by Sofo

Authority grows to the same extent that self-confidence develops.

People who are lacking self-confidence are those most in need of an external authority to dictate them what to do and how to do it.

The self-confident man does not need to live by instructions, rules, or orders. He has faith in himself and trusts his inner voice. He creates and walks his own way, and is responsible for his actions.

The self-confident man is not and cannot be a follower. He is a leader, and can’t help but be a leader.
