Confidence, Courage & the Unknown

Confidence. Courage.
Or different?
Confidence comes from the sure knowledge that we “have this”. You’ve performed the routine, you know the choreography, you’ve made the call before – the script is committed to memory.
Confidence comes from the sure knowledge that we “have this”.
But what about the first performance? The first conversation, the first dive, the first flight?
How do we gain confidence without having actually done the thing we wish to become confident in doing?
Enter Courage.
If Confidence dwells in the land of the known, Courage lives in the twilight of the unknown.
If Confidence dwells in the land of the known, Courage lives in the twilight of the unknown.
As a coach told me many years ago, “that first rehearsal is a corker.” 
Sometimes you land flat on your ass. 
Doesn’t matter whether you’re dancing or selling. 
It takes time to build the skills and make it look (and feel) effortless.
Until then, until Confidence settles in and take hold, it’s Courage that carries the ball.
