Why Underestimating or Overestimating Some of Your Skills Is The Best Way To Fail 🧩


Written by:

Do you know why underestimating or overestimating some of your skills is the best way to fail in your success’ building? A great mistake goal-setters often make is that they don’t actually know that they own expert knowledge and skills able to lead them to success. So they start building up lack of self-confidence and self-doubt instead of building self-confidence. As a result, they presume that they do not have the potential to pursue their goals and finally manifest them. On the other hand, sometimes they tend to overestimate some of their skills; this attitude may lead them to distorted estimations about the feasibility of their goal-planning; it may also put their plan at risk.

Let’s see how both those assessments work.

When you underestimate your potential

When you experience self-doubt about the efficacy of your skills and expertise, you cannot unleash the full potential of your creative energy necessary to your success.

You may spoil a lot of your creative energy, when you believe that you don’t have the skills, or the level of knowledge or the experience to begin building your goals. The problem here is that your mindset is set on the “I am not enough” wavelength. This mindset dictates thoughts of the sort “I don’t know enough. I don’t have enough skills to deal with such a complex goal-setting. I cannot make it”. It actually leads to a procrastinating behavior;“ I will never go on building my business or my professional career, because I think I don’t have those skills”. This mindset ends up to an incorrect use of your skills. It discourages you from setting high-end goals; it disempowers your decisiveness and resilience to pursue your goals and work on a sound blueprint of success.

When you overestimate your skills

Underestimating your skills isn’t the only hurdle concerning your skills. Another challenge here is when you overestimate some of your skills as well. For example, someone may believe that they have an excellent ability of focusing their attention to building their goals, whereas in reality they face a serious issue of attention deficit without realizing it. Or, in another example, they estimate having very good organizational skills, but in practice their actions are affected by chaotic practices and attitudes. As with undervaluing your skills, when you overestimate them, you risk making decisions that are not suitable to support the robust building of your goals and their successful manifestation.

The problem with wrong skills’ assessment

The big problem with overvaluing or undervaluing your skills is that you end up not knowing your full potential. You actually ignore the full spectrum of your abilities. The outcome is that you don’t know what you are able to do; you don’t realize how far you can go in succeeding your goals. Moreover, you fail to realize that you have developed a valuable know-how able to lead you to achieving your professional goals.

In the end, the most crucial skill you have is to be able to assess all of your skills in the most objective way. Which is your strong point and which is not? Which of your skills is highly developed and which one needs to be further trained.

Or maybe it’s necessary to learn a new skill and cultivate a new behavior to build your next high-end goal.
