Levels of Confidence

You cannot think your way to confidence. Confidence is something that must be earned.  You build that confidence one level at a time.

There are there levels that will help you build confidence:

LEVEL #1 – Expert Knowledge

Having specialized knowledge in a particular field or niche is the first level.

LEVEL #2 – Expert Knowledge and Advanced Skills

Having both Expert Knowledge and Advanced Skills in a particular field or niche takes you to the next level, elevating your confidence even higher.

LEVEL #3 – Expert Knowledge, Advanced Skills and Achieving Success

The highest level of confidence is attained when you have mastered all three levels: Expert Knowledge, Advanced Skills and Achieving Success. This makes you a bone fide expert in your field or niche.

  1. How do you get Level 3 Success?

    This describes the quandary faced by everyone seeking to try something outside their comfort zone. My take is you sharpen your Advanced Skills and leverage your Expert Knowledge and take a small step with proper advice. There’s no substitute for action and no gain without some risk.

    I like this perspective so much that I cited it on my own blog. Great stuff Tom!
