That is confidence. And competence.
And yes, it’s juggling.
As I like to tell my clients and students, if you wake me up out of a sound sleep at 3:00 in the morning and tell me to juggle, I don’t have to think about how to do it.
Juggling isn’t something I do. It’s something I am.
Same as other things. Generally speaking, counseling and coaching isn’t something I have to think about how to do. I’ve been at it for so long and have done it for thousands of hours.
I’ve tried and failed, but gotten better.
And I’ve reached a level of skill so that I’m a professional.
That probably describes you.
Maybe not in things that you value.
But there are definitely things in your life you don’t have to think about.
You do them, because you are them.
And yes, some of those things are destructive. Habits that pull you away from where you want to go.
But let’s say for now there are things you do so automatically, you do them with confidence and speed.
And speed doesn’t necessarily mean going fast. It can mean deliberately going slow.
When I coach, counsel or train someone, I often make a choice to slow the pace down. Slow is what they need…not fast.
Point is, if you do something with enough intention, commitment and purpose…
And are willing to learn from mistakes rather than let them drag you down.
And find a mentor who knows what you know how to do and is good at teaching it.
And most importantly, become the thing you learn how to do…
Yes. You can learn to do anything. And you can learn to be it.
Speed and confidence.
Play the game.
And stay with it.
In what areas of your life do you have speed and confidence?
Is it something you want to keep doing?
Is it a pattern that holds you back?
What would you like to get really good at?
