A conceptual look at confidence, poise, assurance, cool.

If you want to be successful at anything in life, it is important you have a certain level of confidence. You must have confidence in yourself, in your ability, and your preparation. Confidence is especially critical when it comes to shooting the basketball. If you don’t think the ball is going in every time you shoot, then why are you shooting? Ask any good shooter and they will tell you the “next shot is going in.” They will tell you this even if they missed their last 10 shots.

How do you get confidence on the court? You prepare. You strength, train, and condition so fatigue is never a factor. You spend hours a day shooting hundreds of shots. But you don’t just go out and shoot; you take game shots, from game spots, at game speed.

“You only feel pressure when you are not prepared.”

In the movie “The Seven Samurai,” The farmers got more confident in defeating the bandits because they got more Samurais to help them. There were also confident because they prepared for the attack and used tactics to defend the bandits.

Overall, being prepared will always make you confident on anything. Such as; giving a speech, playing a basketball game, and taking important test etc.

“Confidence is key.”
