The dichotomy of Confidence - with Rebecca Mountain

Feb 17, 2020
 

This week the mighty Rebecca Mountain and I chatted about confidence and life.  She recently launched a book about her journey and WOW.  Some intense and inspirational stuff!

The big idea we chat about in this facebook life is the duality of confidence.  Feeling confident in what you know and feeling confident when you need to ask for help.

We've all had the experience when we knew we could do it, we got into a flow, and we executed the thing flawlessly.  Maybe it was driving to work, or maybe it was playing Mozart one-handed in front of 1000 people.  

We also have had the experience when we were certain we didn't know what to do.  Think about parenting your first child, delivering a speech in front of peers, or being asked to play Mozart one-handed in front of 1000 people.  :)

When we know what we know, and know what we don't know, we are confident in what we need.  It's the spaces between where we get into trouble.   We discount our ability or expertise to perform, or we overexaggerate our own capabilities.  

How do you find your way to confidence when you need it?  When is it ok to trust you can figure it out?  Check out our discussion in the video!
