No confidence? Try courage instead.
You want to feel confident and act like you know what you’re doing at all times right? Yep, me too.
You’re also ambitious and go after new opportunities? Me too.
Therein lies the rub.
I know now that when I stretch myself out of my comfort zone and go for the next thing, there is little chance I am going to feel confident and like I know what I am doing the whole time. I'm more likely to feel a bit nervous, unsure and confused.
When confidence is in short supply I don't wait for it to arrive before I start, I use courage instead.
