I love the subject of confidence.
Mainly because having confidence precedes action & action is the key to getting everything you want out of life and yet it’s the one thing so many of us suffer from a lack of.
We know that if we just had the confidence to approach that person, make that video, start that business, attend that conference it could mean everlasting happiness!
But we stop, we hesitate & we allow the voice of doubt to envelop us.
A quote popped up on my computer screen today;
“A surplus of effort could overcome a deficit of confidence.” Sonia Sotomayor
I take that a step further.
A surplus of effort WILL overcome a deficit of confidence.
Next time the voices stop you in your tracks. Ask yourself, ‘what skills do I need to master to follow through on this goal’?
What do I need to learn, who do I need to become & how can I increase my confidence through self improvement in this area?
We are always growing & learning. We haven’t reached a certain age & that’s now it, we can’t improve any further.
confidence isn’t something we’re born with, it’s something we nurture & build on through our lives.
We can continue to expand our mind, our skill sets & our therefore our confidence until the day we die.
So next time Mr Primal Brain says ‘I’m just not confident enough’ – engage Ms Pre Frontal Cortex, get to work on making the effort required to become who you need to be & the confidence will follow. 😁
