We start at the bottom and work up.
Level 1 — The confidence to try. The goal at this level is attempting the discipline, not success. If you only do the things you are great at, you won’t do much in life. You seldom start at the top. You have to foster an understanding of what that feels like to give something new a try.
Level 2 — The confidence to learn. Here the goal is growth. You’ve tried it and you’ve gotten some instruction and feedback, so now you have the confidence to grow and improve.
Level 3 — The confidence to do. You’ve learned enough to feel competent living out what you’ve learned on a consistent basis. You believe in yourself and your skills.
Level 4 — The confidence to master. Here you live it well enough and consistently enough that you can teach it to others. You replicate or reproduce your skills — and your confidence.
