Everyday Leaders are confident there is a way to solve difficult challenges.

Rubik’s Cube

Have you ever used a Rubik’s Cube? Do you recall how difficult it was for you to figure out the puzzle of the Rubik’s Cube? It appeared to be out of the question.

Oddly, youngsters may solve these puzzles, but grownups find it nearly inconceivable. Now why do you think that is?

I believe that it’s because youngsters don’t understand that it’s out of the question to solve the puzzle.  Because they don’t know it’s out of the question, they’re able to resolve it.

What is Confidence?

Confidence is a mindset which will allow you to have positive, yet honest, opinions of outcomes in response to the everyday challenges we experience.

The opposite of confidence, is to anticipate failure.  Self-assurance doesn’t mean an ability to accomplish everything.  Confidence involves the ability to absorb setbacks without loss of enthusiasm for what can be achieved.

An Everyday Leader has a sense of command over their life.  Confidence is like a muscle.  When exercised, it grows stronger.  Individuals who lack confidence, tend to depend on the approval of other people to feel good about themselves. 

Yes, there are times when a series of setbacks diminishes confidence.  A self-assured Everyday Leader will anticipate success on the next try. 

The Everyday Leader will also recognize the level of confidence in those around them and do what they can to create conditions for their success.  Not empty cheerleading.  Rather, they give constructive thought to what they can or cannot offer and act accordingly.
