Micheal Jordan is known as maybe the best basketball player and even athlete to have ever lived.
He lived with an unfathomable level of confidence.
Such a confidence people point to as the key to his success in basketball and life.
"It's because he had so much swagger and confidence he became the best"
While this, from the outside is a great indicator and tool for his success, it really is just a byproduct of his humility.
You see to be successful, it requirers a great degree of humility first, before any confidence gain be gained.
To be able to say to oneself: "I don't know everything and I'm not the best, but I can get better"
To get truly great at anything, and especially to the very top of the mountain, it requires the most humility.
To accept there is always more to learn and greater heights to reach.
That is the true mark of a super achiever and the highly successful.
That is the true mark of confidence.
