To put things in perspective, let me tell you a story about learning how to play the guitar. When I wanted to learn how to play the guitar, I watched MTV (you know, back when they still played music).
So any time a new song came on the air, I tried to play it.
For example, let’s say you want to learn how to play golf, but barely know the difference between a ball and a tee.
Before you take that first swing, you probably want to get an idea of how golf works, what the general rules are, and the different types of equipment that are used.
Trust me when I tell you that nine times out of ten, your future self won’t care.
It’s almost automatic: When your knowledge increases, so does your confidence.
Some never seem to get it, no matter how hard they try. We can get the job offer, land the new big client, ask that person out, or make a speech all without confidence.
This is especially true when you are interested in something you know nothing about.They now have thousands of You Tube videos, websites, and tutorials ready to not only teach them how to play the guitar, but how to play the songs want to learn — not what some producer at MTV has decided to air.So, with the Internet so easily accessible, don’t be afraid to do that deep dive or fall down that rabbit hole on You Tube or Wikipedia and work toward earning your online Ph D in any interest of your choice.You’re probably thinking, “Come on Johnny, if I have no problem believing in myself, I wouldn’t be looking to build my confidence.” That’s a fair sentiment, so that’s why you need to start slow, take baby steps, and learn to accept that there will be mistakes.For example, look at some of the activities or tasks you can do now with relative ease.
