Gear Up for Success: Part 3

Action Breeds Confidence

Confidence is important, and it breeds more confidence — in yourself and others. That’s why most of the successful people you’ll ever meet were confident before they were successful, not just afterwards.

Hide Your Insecurities

There’s much said and written about authenticity, so it’s a little unconventional to advocate hiding your insecurities. But in my experience sharing my uncertainty about my abilities to achieve a certain outcome can sometimes be demoralizing to the people around me.

Take the Rougher Road

The human animal is hard-wired to prefer what’s easier and simpler. But in certain situations, you’ll learn more and better enhance your skills and abilities when you intentionally accept a bigger-than-necessary challenge.

Invest Your Time in Others

Because other people are central to your productivity and success, you can view every minute you spend developing and strengthening relationships as an “investment” that will pay dividends in the future.
