Read the first chapter of Unlock Your Confidence in this extract
Living with confidence is about having the courage to live the life you want. Unlock Your Confidence offers a complete, step-by-step, hands-on, personal empowerment course using tried and tested tools and techniques, quizzes and exercises to help you to understand where you are now in life, where you want to be, and how to get there.
In this book, psychologist, teacher and life coach Dr Gary Wood introduces The Confidence-Karma Method, which emphasises the principle of ‘what goes around comes around’ – how building confidence in others can have a powerful, positive knock-on effect on your own life.
Written in a warm and engaging style, it offers a unique, whole-life approach that develops your skills and strengths in small, achievable steps; builds resilience by working on mindfulness; and changes your attitudes toward yourself (and others) from three different angles of: feelings, actions and thoughts. It also raises aspirations and helps you to reach your potential by addressing motivation, values and goal-setting. And from a physical perspective, it considers the impact that factors such as breathing, relaxation, health, exercise and body language have on confidence and self-esteem.
