Assertiveness, self-esteem and confidence building

Self-doubt can have a crippling affect on our abilities. It does not take very long to be convinced by negative internal dialogue. A little bit like a 'self-fulfilling prophecy', or have you heard the saying, 'as a man thinketh, so is he'?

If you worry too much about the opinions of others, take more notice of peer pressures, or simply do not believe you are worth the effort, you can be your own worst enemy. Our imaginations are a wonderful creative tool, and can easily develop a positive response, with the right kind of guidance.

A man cannot be comfortable without his own approval. Mark Twain.
