What’s Your Confidence Quota?


Every week and every day, we plan and make quotas: what we expect to achieve.

So, what if, every week—or every day—you establish a “confidence quota”: achieving something you’ve been avoiding. Something you want to do, but haven’t felt up to doing.

It may be one big thing, or many little things. The important thing is that you do them.

One way to get started is to determine a goal. What do you want to achieve?

Then envision success: What would your life look like if you achieved this goal? (Don’t stress here—just make it up.)

Then ask: “What’s holding me back?” Very often, it’s confidence.

For instance: My confidence quota this week is to work on my book.

Yes—even though I write, I’ve been avoiding it.

The thought of writing a whole book seems overwhelming.

But then I realized I could break the project down into more manageable tasks.

So, I decided to focus on just one chapter at a time. One chapter a week. That’s all.

Now, I’m much more confident I can achieve my quota! I’ll let you know how it turns out.

Meanwhile: What’s your confidence quota?
