If these quotes about self-confidence show you anything they demonstrate that even the most famous and renowned people have had to overcome problems with self-esteem and confidence. In many cases, they did this by simply changing their attitude. The fake it until you make it approach is something that everyone from Amy Schumer to Katy Perry believes in.
Anxiety or worry about putting yourself out there is usually caused by a fear of embarrassing yourself, being judged or failing at whatever you attempt. But what about if you decided to hell with it and went on and did it anyway despite the consequences? In most cases, you are likely to succeed and in the few cases where things might not work out, you will have probably learned a valuable lesson from the experience.
We help our clients to create belief in themselves so that they try things that previously they would have avoided. They need to know that all avoidance does is make their problem worse and narrows their worlds. A lack of confidence can rob you of opportunities, impact relationships and impact how much you will earn. Therefore it makes sense to invest in programs to help build confidence, self-esteem and self-worth.
Our confidence worksheets and printable PDF can help you to spot the triggers that are holding you back as well as the unhelpful thoughts that cause you to retreat to the familiar. Use them not only to work out the lies your mind may be telling you but to overcome distorted thinking and create positive change.
