Publisher's Summary

In Confidence Changed My Life, listeners will learn why confidence is so important for contentment and to achieve success.

One of the most important tools for gaining confidence is recognizing that confidence problems may stem from anxiety. Anxiety is one of the most frequent reasons patients visit their primary care physician, although many people do not realize that what they are suffering from is anxiety.

Excessive worries and fears have become an issue impacting millions in the developed world. It is estimated that approximately four percent of adults will deal with significant anxiety at some point in their life, and the number of affected individuals is even higher in some countries.

In Confidence Changed My Life, listeners will learn to recognize the signs and symptoms of anxiety in order to determine if worries play a role in their life.

Confidence refers to the ability to trust in one's own abilities and that things will turn out as expected. Self-esteem is one’s intrinsic sense of self-worth, that one has value. Anxious people frequently lack trust in their abilities, expect events to turn out poorly, and have a low sense of self-worth relative to others. What this means is that, for such people, building confidence begins with eradicating anxiety. This can be a sticking point for some as they may be reluctant to label themselves as being anxious, but accomplishing this step is the beginning of turning your life around.

In Confidence Changed My Life, listeners will learn how combating anxiety really can be life-changing. Once the causes of low self-esteem and a lack of confidence have been identified, that is when the real work begins: building confidence. We sometimes poke fun at overconfident people because they seem out of touch with reality and expose themselves to ridicule, but most people would benefit from taking a page from the handbook of the overconfident. Listeners of Confidence Changed My Life will learn how qualities, like having a positive attitude, seeing the upside of things, seeing failures as opportunities for further success, and taking risks, are traits of the overconfident that are tied to success and happiness.

The truth is that it can be hard to be confident and in today’s world where we are constantly exposed to what others are doing this seems to be getting even harder. But changing your life with confidence is closer than it seems. In Confidence Changed My Life, the following topics designed to help listeners develop the skills they need to change their lives will be covered:

  • The ways anxiety impacts your life
  • The fear pathway in the brain
  • Overcoming negative thinking
  • Why self-esteem and confidence are important
  • Codependency and unhealthy relationships
  • Tips for being assertive
  • Getting out of a rut
  • Steps to reduce anxiety and build self-confidence
