You are just seven steps away from outstanding confidence
Outstanding Confidence In A Week is a simple and straightforward guide to being more confident, giving you everything you really need to know in just seven short chapters. From overcoming doubts and uncertainty to addressing negative self-talk, you'll discover that you have the choice to be confident or not and that confidence can be increased if you work at it. You'll also find exercises to help you put it all into action to help boost your achievements.
Building confidence just got easier
It is an old saying, and perhaps a sobering thought, that 'if you think you can, you can, and if you think you can't, you're right'. What often makes the difference between doing something successfully and failure is the level of confidence you bring to the task. The trick is to ensure that you have sufficient confidence to bring.
You have a choice. Either you opt out: operating on whatever level of self-confidence circumstances bestow upon you, recognizing that human nature, the competitive workplace and other influences tend to exert a negative pressure to reduce the level of self-confidence you have. Or you adopt an active approach and determine that you will work at achieving a useful level of self-confidence despite all the world may throw at you. It really is a no-brainer, especially since much that you need to do to take control is straightforward.
View it the right way and take action to make it possible and confidence, and confidence in the workplace particularly (the focus here), can be increased. This book is designed to help. It sets out practical approaches, ways of thinking and ways of doing that will help you - and it shows how very manageable some of those techniques are to deploy.

- Monday: A little judicious self-analysis
- Tuesday: The nature of the workplace
- Wednesday: Working at creating confidence
- Thursday: The contribution of appearance
