“If you have no confidence in self, you are twice defeated in the race of life. With confidence, you have won even before you have started.”

–Marcus Tullius Cicero

The ancient Roman statesmen was chock full of quotable wisdom, but the quote here is one of my favorites. I’m a big believer in confidence, as it’s necessary to get virtually anything good in life accomplished. The next time you’re faced with a challenge, put your confidence suit on and go out and get things done.

Wisdom about money, investing and life can be found anywhere. If you have a good quote you’d like me to share with your fellow Alert readers, send it to me, along with any comments, questions and suggestions you have about my radio show, newsletters, seminars or anything else.
