Practice creates confidence

Today’s action is to log in to your study support resources and complete an e-learning module. Read on to find out which module is right for you. This action will take you: 30 minutes. 

Simone Biles, dubbed the best gymnast in the world, left the Rio Olympics with four gold medals.

The pint-sized star captivated the world with her complex routines and ability to stick any landing. It’s been a success story long in the making.

The 19-year-old has spent the past five years training six days a week and overcome a difficult childhood in which she was placed in foster care and then adopted by her grandparents when her mother struggled with drugs and alcohol.

In an interview with the Guardian, she reveals it’s actually her confidence, an ability to shake her nerves when she hits the floor to compete, that sets her above the rest. Her team-mate Gabby Douglas says, “I love to see her mindset going into things. Sometimes you just watch her on the side because she’s so calm with everything. And I think that’s how everybody needs to be. So calm, so confident. She’s an amazing competitor. She really is.”

Where does this calm mindset come from?

“Practice creates confidence. Confidence empowers you,” she says.

With this in mind, remember that sitting practice assessments, having friends test your knowledge and completing e-learning modules are the tools that will give you the confidence to succeed.

So today we’re going to, you guessed it, complete another e-learning module.
