Confidence comes from a feeling and meaning that we attach to the result. If I am confident, it is because I have attached a meaning and feeling to my past that helps me. If I am lacking confidence, it is because I have attached a meaning and feeling to my past that hurts me. Notice how both situations are perceptions of an event. Neither is reality, but instead, it is the reality we create with our thoughts. When Steph Curry has a bad game he doesn't let that determine his mindset going forward for the next game. He focuses on his preparation, which is within his control, to prepare to the best of his ability for the next game. He identifies what he can learn from his past performance to help him and his team for the future. When we identify with the poor performance, we lose confidence and fail to bring our best selves into the next moment.
Confidence comes from a feeling. When we win, we are more confident going forward because we have a positive emotion attached to that past performance. When we lose, we are less confident going forward because of the negative emotion we attach to that past performance. However, the top performers in sports, business and life think on a higher plane by taking control of their mind and the feeling that they attach to the past. This affects their motivation and focus to be at their highest levels in the present.
Be careful of your thoughts because they will lead to your destiny!
