Competence Starts with Feeling Competent

How good are you at what you do? Do you have tests or periodic evaluations or some other means to measure your performance? Surely, there is an objective way to demonstrate whether you are good at what you do and whether you should consider yourself a success.


Actually, people who do not think they are good at what they do—who do not think they are capable of success or leadership— do not change their opinion even when they are presented with indicators of success. Instead, their self-doubts overrule evidence to the contrary.


Don’t wait for your next evaluation to improve your judgment of yourself, because feelings are not dependent on facts—and feelings of competence actually start with the feelings and then produce the competence.
