That’s Confidence!

What is confidence? It’s your belief you are competent, your belief you can perform under pressure. When we are not sure…we do not believe. When we do not believe, we cannot achieve. Vince Lombardi said it well: When my team is unsure, they cannot make quick decisions; they cannot take aggressive action.

To build your confidence, you must study your craft, you must prepare well, you must practice, deliberately, deeply, repetitively. Your actions will become automatic, become “second nature,” become instantaneous.

You know, you are sure, because you’ve been there before. You’ve proven your competence to yourself. That’s confidence!
