How to build confidence.

Kenny (@kenny) 10 years, 10 months ago

Here’s a dialogue from the movie "Three Kings" that I want to share.

Archie Gates: You’re scared, right?
Conrad Vig: Maybe.
Archie Gates: The way it works is, you do the thing you’re scared shitless of, and you get the courage AFTER you do it, not before you do it.
Conrad Vig: That’s a dumbass way to work. It should be the other way around.
Archie Gates: I know. That’s the way it works.

it is true…in order to over come one’s fear he/she has to confront it and do what is needed to over come it :D (that is exactly how it works; very cool quotes :D)

Scared? Do it anyway.
^ Courage in a nutshell. Whatever happens, it could go worse if you don’t do it, and fear is never good motivation to do or not do something.

@kenny, I think the quote you found from “Three Kings” is only partially true. Yes, we do build confidence and courage after overcoming a challenge that we may fear. However, to even attempt to take on that challenge requires an inner sense of confidence. Sure we may be terrified, but we must be somewhat confident to tackle a challenge in the first place. Persevering through the challenge only builds and reinforces the confidence which it took to begin.

** Underrated movie

So there’s no fear but awareness of possible miscalculation! Confidence to me is nothing but a persuasive form of showing competence which is only useful if someone else is looking for it. :) Sheesh, where did that come from.
