Motivational Thoughts on Competence



When criticized, consider the source.
-- Unknown Author

The common course of things is in favor of happiness; that happiness is the rule, misery the exception. Were the order reversed, our attention would be called to examples of health and competency, instead of disease and want.
-- William Paley

Act with purpose, courage, confidence, competence and intelligence until these qualities ‘lock in’ to your subconscious mind.
-- Brian Tracy

A competent professional listens well, probes, asks questions, and thinks before he speaks. This is easy to say, but hard to do.
-- Jeffrey G. Allen

I've gone through life believing in the strength and competence of others; never in my own. Now, dazzled, I discovered that my capacities were real. It was like finding a fortune in the lining of an old coat.
-- Joan Mills

To construct the adventure of your life, you need more than travel agents and destination recommendations. You need to generate faith in your own trailblazing competence. Born in your heart, tempered by your mind, molded with your hands, and walked with your own two feet, the trail you blaze is your remarkable gift to yourself, everyone you leave at home, and whomever you encounter along the way.
-- Bruce Northam

Every experience is a learning experience. Every time we try something--win or lose--we learn, we grow, we attain more confidence and competence for the next time.
-- Pat Williams

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it. Amateurs are people who can't do their job when they do feel like it.
