What is self-doubt?
Self-Doubt is a story we tell ourselves that we can’t do something and that it’s, not possible. How we’ll get rejected and fail.
Boldness as an indicator of Success
boldness is a stronger indicator of success than intelligence, smart people, think of all the negative things that will happen when things go wrong, but bold people think of all the good things that will happen when things go right.
Now I’m, not saying that smart people can’t be bold and that bold people can’t be smart, but it’s, boldness. That’s. The secret sauce boldness is what put you on the path to success
What does boldness really mean?
It basically comes down to this. You chase what you want and you don’t. Take what you can get. The problem is, most of us live on default.
We default to what’s, convenient. We take what’s available and we acquiesce to what’s in front of us now. What I’ve realized is that there is a really big misconception of what boldness really is. People assume that boldness is something you’re either born with or you’re, not, but that’s, actually quite not sure that’s quite that’s.
Not quite true. Boldness is a skill like anything else, you need to practice it. You need to harness it to get better and better at it. There is a mindset that I developed and it’s called a 10 % target and what that is is basically very simple.
The idea is that you, whatever you want most in life, make ten attempts. The problem is most people don’t make ten attempts. The truth is most people don’t even make one attempt they call themselves out before they even try, and the purpose of the 10 % target is to get very comfortable at failing 90 % of the time.
Now I guarantee, if you make 10 attempts at anything, one will be successful, because here’s, what I know either one you’ll, get the thing you want or two you will get something that you never even knew available.
