The Right Confidence Levels

The Right Confidence Levels

  • Confidence is a belief that your knowledge is accurate, that your skills are up to the task, and that you can grow into whatever particular challenge is in front of you
  • There is a lot of value in having an appropriate level of confidence in situations you face
  • Being over-confident is dangerous because you may put yourself at social, physical, or financial risk when you take on something your knowledge and skills cannot handle
  • When you frequently experience pangs of regret over the actions you didn’t take, you may be consistently being underconfident

Chronically Underconfident

Chronically Underconfident

  • When you are chronically under-confident, your immediate reaction to any opportunity is to turn it down. Pay attention to it.
  • Take the time to actually contemplate a new opportunity. Doing so might make you nervous, but that's not a good reason not to think it through.
  • You will often find that you would be more encouraging to someone else than to yourself.

Consider Specific Alternatives

Many opportunities that are put in your path are there because they do fit within your skill set (or close enough that you will succeed with effort).

When you say yes more often, you provide yourself with opportunities to succeed at things that fall inside your capabilities but outside your comfort zone.

Use Training Wheels

Use Training Wheels

  • You are legitimately worried that something is beyond your capabilities, but that doesn't mean that you should not be involved at all.
  • Consider asking a trusted colleague or mentor to work on something with you so that you get some experience working at a level beyond what you have done in the past.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
