Everyone knows that the more confident we are, the more likely we will create excellence. Naturally, the more prepared and skilled we are, the easier it is to choose confidence (notice that language!), but even talent and mastery and preparedness do NOT guarantee confidence. We all know that certain student who always crushes all their tests and gets straight A’s in school but still freaks out with anxiety before every test. The ability is there and it is proven, but the confidence isn’t. Why?
Where does confidence come from? I’ll tell you this, it sure as hell doesn’t come from anything in the outer world.
