Do you lack confidence or self-belief? Join the club. Millions of otherwise smart people lack the confidence to achieve their full potential - at work, in their careers and even in their personal pursuits. Yet confidence isn't something that can be conjured from motivational exercises or via quick-fix techniques. Confidence is something you must build for yourself. It takes planning and action, deciding where you want to gain confidence and how it must be won. It will require courage, optimism and resilience.
In this follow-up to his international bestseller What's Stopping You? Robert Kelsey offers a deep understanding of confidence, using extensive research analysis, as well his own experiences, to help you to:
Identify the truth about confidence - its root causes, as well as the damaging self-beliefs that generate poor confidence
Accept who you are, while planning your path towards confidence through achievement
Understanding the myths around confidence, such as the need to be outgoing or to have talent
Overcome the most common barrier to strong confidence: other people
Deal with other barriers to confidence such as shyness, anxiety, stress, prejudice and hubris.
"Kelsey has produced a thoughtful and easily accessible book. While it will be of interest to a broad audience, its focus on preventing hubris and achieving potential should resonate with managers." (Irish Times, 21st January 2013)
