This book takes an alternative view of what confidence is and

  • explores the interplay between competence and confidence and how it can be misjudged.
  • explains what blocks confidence and why we may hold ourselves back.
  • covers how our experience of the world is shaped and influenced and how this impacts on how we feel.
  • includes ways to feel better when we really need to get back in the game quickly - it’s so much more than ‘power poses’!
Read this if you want a deeper understanding of your own psychology and how your thoughts influence your life and confidence powerfully, moment to moment.
