I am convinced that the most important thing to feel confident about is our ability to learn something new.
Confidence builds on past experience – but in today's world we are constantly facing new situations and challenges.
The only experience you may have to draw on is that you have done other new things before, that you are a quick thinker, or an avid learner.
My personal mantra for these situations is:
“I've always figured things out. I'll figure this one out too.”
In other words, I am confident in my ability to learn something new.
Can you see a thought like this help you feel more confident when facing a new challenge?
What could this thought be for you?
I'd love to hear your ideas!
