This was one of the questions that came up in The Confident Athlete live group Zoom calls this past week and it made me think about my answer for this.
Here was my answer to these girls:
It's not like I worked on my mindset and now I'm cured. I'm not 100% confident, 100% of the time. I'm human!
Think about it as different subjects in school. You have English, History, Math, Science, etc. Your grades in each of these subjects vary. 95% in English. 80% in Math. You get the point.
Confidence is kind of like those subjects in school. You might be...
100% confident in your defense.
60% confident in your offense.
75% confident in making new friends.
40% confident in asking for help.
Sometimes it varies.
But, here's what I know is true. I know that when I started focusing on what I was thinking and working on my mindset, my confidence was BOOMING! Because... what we think and say is what we believe.
It took me less than 6 months to turn my confidence around my senior year of college!
Everyone's journey to confidence is different, but it's better to start now, rather than later!
