Confidence is Overrated

Aug 1, 2018

We think that we need to feel confident before we take action.

But it’s actually impossible to do so because…

Confidence comes AFTER we’ve taken action. After we’ve done the ‘thing’. After we’ve gained experience.

Confidence is the result of taking action, not the prerequisite.

If you want to feel confident before taking your next step then you may never take that step at all.

(I’ve seen people get stuck here for months and even years waiting to feel confident first… yipes!)

We don’t need confidence to get started.

What we need is COURAGE.

We need to be able to look at what we want and say “I may not know how this will turn out but I’m going to go for it!!” (insert deep breath here.)

Courage is having faith that everything will work out – even if the journey has some ups & downs along the way (like every journey does.)

Courage is putting your stake in the ground and saying “I will NOT let my fear stop me!!!” (which is the choice we are all called to make.)

And the wonderful thing is that courage is like a muscle – the more you use it the stronger it gets.

It doesn’t matter how much success you’ve already created in your business – there is ALWAYS another level that will scare you. That will call you to step forward into that great unknown.

Courage is one of the most valuable tools in our success toolbox.

And so I ask you… where are you waiting to feel confident? And how is it getting in the way of your growth?

What courageous step are you being called to take today?
