Confidence is a By-Product of Predictability

Confidence is a By-Product of Predictability

Dr. Keith Johnson, America’s #1 Confidence Coach

When people first hear me say that “confidence is a by-product of predictability,” I get many blank stares. You may have some questions too, so let me explain this principle with a “what if.”

I am a public speaker. A “what if” happened to me. I was diagnosed with a cyst in my jaw and had to have surgery. In the surgery, I had two molars and a wisdom tooth removed, and part of my jaw bone was replaced.

Less than two weeks after the surgery, I stood up to speak and experienced unpredictability. Prior to the surgery, I had great confidence in my ability to speak. But after the surgery, I experienced feelings of uncertainty.

Would I be able to talk for a full hour? Could I handle the pain that lingered from the surgery? Would I be able to talk distinctly? Would the stress of speaking increase the risk of infection?

Everything was unpredictable as I stood up to speak. My confidence in speaking went from 90 percent certainty to 90 percent uncertainty. And this unpredictability caused my confidence to be challenged.

Covid19 Has Created Unpredictable Circumstances

As a result of the unpredictability, your confidence begins to wobble and droop, perhaps for the very first time in your adult life. The thing to remember is that this disillusionment is temporary. It feels at times as though it is permanent and will never again be remedied. But given a few months or years, you will find a new dream.

What happened? My confidence was being challenged, I chose to be confident in the face of unpredictability.

BeConfident Thought…

Unpredictability creates “Loss of Control” producing the “Feeling of Stress.” Predictability creates the feeling of “Being in Control” which produces the “Feeling of Confidence.”

You feel confident about yourself to the degree to which you feel that you are in control of your own life. The opposite is also true, you feel insecure about yourself to the degree which you feel that you are not in control of your own life.

To restore your confidence, you must jump start. For me, I had to push myself to speak soon after my surgery and experience success—instead of stress—in order to restore the feeling of being in control.
