I used to watch people, who apparently have loads of self-confidence, delivering presentations or chairing important meetings and say to myself “I’ll never be able to do that…..they have much more confidence than me”. Never in a million years did I think I would be able to stand up in front of a group of people and actually speak without going red or stumbling and stuttering over my words! The mere thought of it was enough to bring me out in a cold sweat. What I didn’t know at the time was the confident people were often quaking in their boots (just like me!).
Fast forward a few years and here I am standing up in front of audiences and delivering presentations and I love it. How did I do that? I realised that I was victim to my ANTs (Automatic Negative Thoughts) “I’ll never be good at……” or “other people are so much better than me”. I needed to squash those ANTs to get me on track to being the best possible version of me. It hasn’t been an easy journey and I have just taken one step at a time, but if I can squash my ANTs then so can you.
I can help you build your self-confidence and to become the best possible version of you. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to start a conversation.
