Your Confidence Will be in Direct Proportion To Your Preparedness 


Every position is my best position.
Kyle Dake​

Confidence is best defined as a belief in oneself.

Having a belief in oneself is attributed to knowing.

Knowing comes from being prepared.

Preparation comes from putting in the work, making the sacrifices and experiencing the pain.

Confidence is vital to achievement.

Confidence is binary.

There is no middle ground.

Either you have it, or you don’t.

There is no such thing as being “a little bit confident.”

Confidence cannot be faked, It can only be earned.

Confidence is earned through hard work, extreme sacrifice, and enduring physical pain.

Then, and only then will you be prepared, and then and only then will you have confidence.

Every test you face where you do the work, make the sacrifice, and absorb the pain of struggle, is recorded by your mind.

The results are stored deep in your subconscious.

When your confidence is called upon, immediately your subconscious mind will become the judge and jury and will determine if you deserve its delivery based on those prior test results.

There is an old saying that you can’t fool yourself.

When earned, confidence will be at your beckoning call.

When you convince your subconscious mind that you have properly prepared, sacrificed, and have handled the pain, confidence will automatically appear.

And you will be rewarded by its presence.
