Confidence is overrated.
Confidence is just another word for repetition and skill.
You don’t need confidence — you need action, and then you need to repeat the action until you feel confident about what you are doing.
Courage is overrated.
Courage is just a word for doing things that scare other people, but not you.
You don’t need courage — you need to do small things that scare you a little, until they do no more.
Somehow, everyone thinks they need to be confident and courageous BEFORE doing anything, like they could amass confidence and courage on the mirror and then trade them for results.
It works the opposite way.
I could write forever about this, and I probably will.
