Cal has a laid-back, carefree disposition. I’m sure you have met people like that.
Yet, too often we mistake a disposition for a personality trait. If we dig deeper, we’ll most likely find that those who come across as laid-back and carefree have achieved that disposition – that accomplishment – through the diligent design of their lifestyle.
Cal realized, early on, that it would be better to be a free-agent than to be an employee. He set out on that track and eventually achieved that level. Such achievements (and, more importantly, the work and sacrifice one endures to get there) build confidence.
This is the core of Cal’s confidence.
