Some of the clients I deal with have confidence issues.
That’s totally common and I’ve dealt with them myself.
But there’s a key factor that’s usually lacking in their lives that prevents them from being confident.
Too often they are mistaken by thinking “if I can just get more prepared, I’ll be more confident.”
“As long as I know this or know that, I’ll be more confident.”
Wrong. That’s just so wrong.
You cannot put the cart before the horse.
There are only so many books you can read. There are only so many videos you can watch. There are only so many practice sessions you can undergo.
Until you actually play in that game you’ll never have the experience needed to gain the confidence you seek.
I’m not saying you shouldn’t be prepared. I’m not saying you shouldn’t study or know as much as you can.
But I’m saying ultimately there’s no better preparation for being on stage than getting on the stage.
Action is always the first step to being confident.
The knowledge, experience, lessons learned all come from taking action and actually DOING the thing first.
