Confidence is the belief that you’ll be successful in a particular situation or at a specific task.
Those who lack confidence are less likely to join, to create, to contribute, and might be more willing to give in to outside influences. They might expect to fail at things they try, or to not try as hard when things get difficult.
A common mistake many people make is wanting to feel confident before they start something, whether it’s a job, a relationship, or even a conversation. But that’s not how it works.
Confidence isn’t something you just have. It’s something you grow. You have to step out of your comfort zone (and risk your pride) to earn the reward of unearthing your confidence. So, instead of thinking and planning and trying…Just Do It! Learn to DO before you feel ready, and your confidence will grow. Difficult things will get easier. You will get further, faster. And all of this can happen before you even realize that you ARE good enough.
