Confidence Follows Action

Confidence Follows Action

Do the thing.

Let’s turn that around to make it even more clear:

Action brings confidence.

Or maybe:

Action breeds confidence.

Sows? Grows? Builds? Creates?

Choose your favorite verb.

But it’s not the other way around.

It’s not this order:

  1. Have confidence.
  2. Take action.

Did you catch that headline? NOT that order.

Here’s the proper order:

  1. Take action.
  2. Get confidence.

Let’s take a case study? Anyone? Anyone?

OK, fine, me.

Time machine back to March 31, 2014. I had written a total of 1 books (on April 1, 2004–note almost exact DECADE in between). #pressure

I had taken action back in 2004. That built confidence.

I then did not take action from 2004 through on to 2014. Want to guess how that affected my confidence?

Let’s just say I don’t want to talk about it.

On April 1, 2014, I published my second book.

It’s now fall 2019. I was just working on my 17th book.

Want to ask where my confidence is?

Action –> Confidence

That’s a math equation. It’s so simple.

Action results in confidence.

Just one moment because I can already hear from Samantha in the back of the class with her hand up asking:

“But what percentage chance is there that action will lead to confidence?”

— Samantha

4 out of 5 dentists say it’s around a 94% chance.

Here’s a simpler question (and answer) asked by me, the professor in the front of the room:

“What percentage chance is there of confidence when no action is taken?”

— Professor

That’s an easy one.


Zero percent chance.

No action –> no confidence boost.

Note I added “boost” (or increase) in there. Maybe you already have confidence. Awesome possum.

Want more? A boost?
