In this episode of the real fast spanish tips podcast we look at a big mindset topic.
If you have ever struggled with confidence or maybe looking to build your own confidence even though you may have an okay level of confidence to start with then in this mindset tip we are looking at this topic.
Firstly I refer in the podcast to a post I wrote in the archives called: How to build confidence and why?
Confidence is an important topic for language students because you need it if you want to be understood and convey your own level or ability as accurately as possible.
I have seen students with a low level of ability out perform students with a far higher ability purely because of this one difference alone. It’s that the student with a higher ability may be afraid or just not be confident in their own ability and this comes across when it comes time to demonstrate what they are capable of.
So if confidence is about anything it’s that you need it to at least achieve your potential based on what you have done with your practice in your spare time.
Confidence doesn’t outweigh hard work and practice but it is necessary to get the most out of the hard work and practice you have been putting in.
