Saw a joke this morning:
This year I resolve to be more confident and assertive…
…if that’s ok with you guys.
It made me smile and got me thinking.
Mainly about confidence…
Because there seems to be a worrying trend on the horizon…
A traitor in our midst.
A school of thought that states confidence and assertiveness is a god-given talent that’s only bestowed on a chosen few.
Something that I’d have you consider is arsehole thinking and one that explains the sinking self-believe in far too many men on this planet today.
See, here’s the thing – real confidence is not a birthright…
Real confidence is actually earned, and more specifically real confidence is earned through discipline.
The discipline of repetition and the discipline to doing something until it feels like second nature.
Or in other words and in my experience:
Discipline + Repetition = Confidence
The good news about that being, and despite what the rank and file mediocre majority would have you believe…
… If right now, you lack any confidence in anything, then you have the POWER to earn it.
You have the power to take it.
… And you have the power to be it.
… If, and only if, you are willing to do what needs to be done.
Want to get more confident at selling?
Then do more calls.
Want to get more confident on video?
Then do to more videos.
Want to get more confident speaking to women?
Then talk to more women.
There is no magic pill.
There is no morning mediation.
There is no arsehole affirmation.
Confidence comes from one thing and one thing only.
You and I my friend, being willing to do what others won’t.
Yes, it will be hard.
Yes, you will look stupid.
And yes you will probably fuck it up.
… BUT for those who have the heritage of strength to bear down and drive on, regardless of the tornado of shit – TRUE unshakable confidence awaits.
Because confidence will always be the reward of any man that is willing to demonstrate continuous contribution to his cause.
Make More. Provide More. Be More.
