How do normal people do it?  
When you are in the situation where there is something you would like to do, but you're not sure you can do it with the quality that the situation warrents, what do you do? Do it anyway and wait for someone to tell you you're not good enough to be doing it? Not do it anyway? Ask for an opinion? Something else?

EDIT: I feel like it seems like I'm shooting down's people's comments. I'm trying to understand how things are different, not trying to shoot them down.

I think many people are intimidated by a possibility to a greater extent than is warranted by their actual level of experience; thus the obstacle often appears to be getting past a reluctance and the question of qualification enters into it so seldom that they can proceed with the activity in blissful ignorance of their actual skill level, attributing any failures to being scared rather than unable.
