🐣 Which comes first, the confidence or the success?

November 02, 20232 min read

Have you ever wished you had the confidence to start a new business?

Or speak on stage?

Or maybe even write a book?

Whatever you’d love to accomplish, remember this …

Just like chaos comes before clarity, success comes before confidence.

Don’t believe me?

Think about the first few times you drove a car.

Your heart pounded with every turn.

Your sweaty palms smeared the steering wheel.

And you were lucky you didn’t slam into the garage. Or drive over a cement wheel stop in a parking lot.

Yet after practicing over and over, you eventually drove with such confidence, your mind could wander as you made your way across town.

So don’t get down on yourself if you don’t have the confidence to do something new.

The secret is just to start. Then let the confidence grow with your achievement.

And if you’re wondering whether you can shortcut the learning process to make your success easier?

The answer is YES. 🙌


Through mental rehearsal.

It’s the same process the world’s greatest athletes use to nail their winning performances.

In your own mind, imagine yourself doing that new business you’ve been dreaming of.

Or standing on stage inspiring that audience.

Or seeing your book in the window of Barnes & Noble. Or at the top of the Amazon best-seller list.

As you do this, feel the feelings you’re going to have when you get there.

That’s the key, because neural networks in the brain are fueled by emotional intensity.

The more you feel the emotion, the faster your brain wires in that achievement …

Giving you feeling of confidence that helps you succeed even FASTER. ⚡️️

So which one really comes first, the confidence or the success?

Turns out that’s entirely up to you.

And isn’t that exciting?

Big HUG,
