Confidence: The Bird Analogy

Confidence is often an inaccurate predictor of success, placing emphasis on one's trust in their abilities rather than solely in their confidence. A Russian proverb illustrates this idea by likening confidence to a bird's trust in its ability to fly rather than in the branch it rests on. Professional athletes understand the value of confidence and the need to focus on actions, not feelings, to navigate challenges.
