Stop Being Confident #1
Confidence increases risk taking
Gamblers fall into this category all the time. On a particular night, lady luck is sitting on your side of the card table. You can’t lose! Each time you place a bet you win. The lucky streak increases your confidence, so you bet bigger and take more risk.
At one point in the night, after a few big wins, you take a big risk and go “all-in” knowing that lady luck is there with you. As the cards turn over you realize your mistake, you bet with your confident emotions not your logical brain.

People who feel confident most of the time take action. This action often increase the level in confidence. But the problem here is when the confident person is having a bad day, they act in the opposite way to how they act when they are confident
This lack of confidence, creates a lack of action, which decreases the confidence level, creating a negative cycle which can be hard to break. People who don’t feel high levels of confidence have already learnt to take action when they don’t feel really confident. There norm state is enough to create movement.

I sometimes meet other coaches that I haven’t seen for a long time, coaches that I use to talk to at training events. When I ask where they have been for the past few years, they tell me that they have learnt all they need to know.
This confidence in their skill level has a detrimental effect as often the coach is using outdated techniques that take twice as long to have an effect on clients compared to fast therapy techniques that are having a massive impact on clients
To evolve you have to develop, always be willing to learn,
