We can talk about singing and dancing skills.
My previous boss taught me that there are three numbers to consider when it comes to a person’s skills.
He taught me this rule because I’m not very useful in competitions.
He wants me to be a more useful member of his team.
Knowing this will help you overcome your fear during a competitive situation.
There are three numbers to consider.
The first number is the actual skill level.
The second number is a person’s confidence level.
The third number is the person’s actual performance level.
You already know that low skill level and low confidence guarantees low performance.
You also know that average skill and average skill level gets you average performance.
You also know that high confidence isn’t a substitute for low skills.
Here’s the important lesson you may have not considered.
Even if your skill level is high but your confidence is low, you will perform less than your actual skill level.
You may already know examples of skillful people who fail because of nervousness.
If your skill level is average, say 5-7 and your confidence is high, say 8-9, then your performance will increase to seven.
When you’re in a competitive situation, don’t just try to guess if you can win or lose.
Ask yourself the following questions.
On a scale of 1-10 what’s my skill level?
On a scale of 1-10 what’s my confidence level?
Given the above two numbers, what’s my average performance level?
