Confidence and Competence – Which one are you?

“When you have high level of competence in what you do,

and you have the confidence to act on your ability…

you can succeed in any area you choose in your life.” 

To do well and to be happy with what you do, you need to accept who you are. To celebrate your strengths and acknowledge your weaknesses.  After all, you’re all truly unique individuals.

Success in your design practices has everything do with you; how you feel, how you act, and how you embrace who you really are. 

At ArtSHINE we talk with our clients about “Confidence and Competence”.

Here’s why…

As creative individuals you all have dreams and desires. And you set goals that relate to those dreams and desires. Perhaps it’s to become a successful artist or designer recognised in your particular field. One thing’s for sure; all creative people have one very common goal; to be successful in your own right and to be doing what it is that you love.

From our coaching experience we see two essential characteristics required in order to achieve your goals:

1. CONFIDENCE: your heartfelt belief in your ability to do a task, and

2. COMPETENCE: all your abilities, all your skills, experiences and knowledge that means you are capable to do a task.


In our work we have found creative professionals generally fall into one of three groups when it comes to competence and confidence…

Confident but lacks Competence:- Confident and talented with a clear focus on art and design, but not fully competent in all the aspects of the design practice.

Competent but lacks Confidence:- Uniquely talented with a passion for art and design with an understanding, ability, and appreciation of the multiple facets of a successful design practice. But lacking the self confidence to move beyond current experiences. Sometimes reliant on others to confirm talents. Has the ability yet lacks the confidence to take action. Therefore remains stuck and seldom achieves goals and dreams.

While successful creative professionals fall into this third category…

Confident and competent:- This is where we want you to be… Positive in your approach to your art and design practice. Confident in your ability to achieve what you want, and actively working towards your goals. Understanding of what it takes to be good at what you do, and grateful for both your strengths and weaknesses. Constantly challenging yourself, learning new skills to get better within yourself, and in your Business LifeStyle.

So, to achieve your goals and be successful, the first step it to achieve competence. Build the necessary skills and knowledge you need in your at and design practice. And that’s not just about the art and design… It’s about your ability to “deliver the whole package”.

Just as critical is your belief and having the confidence in yourself to take action. To have the confidence to do everything that’s necessary, to do what you know, to use your talent and your skills to the best of your ability.

The really good news is that both confidence and competence can be developed over time through learning, experiencing and gaining knowledge.

When you have a high level of competence in your particular area and you have the confidence to act on your ability… you can succeed in any area you choose in your life.
