Five important Interpersonal skills that help build self-confidence

There is a very strong link between your interpersonal skills (also called social skills and life skills) and self-confidence. Today I focus on five of them that I consider to be very important skills to develop. What are interpersonal skills? Interpersonal skills are the skills and abilities that a person uses to build relationships, communicate and interact with other people on a social level, at work, in groups and one-to-one. Improving and building on your interpersonal skills will go a long way towards helping you develop a strong sense of self-confidence. They… Read More

Be the change you want to see in yourself

I like to think of myself as someone who flies the flag for the old personal growth methods. The ones that work but not everyone could figure out how to work them. They have been replaced with new ‘twists’ on old themes. One of those old themes is my valued ‘fake it till you make it’ and the other is writing and using affirmations. Today I want to add a new way of seeing these under appreciated but very valuable confidence building methods. Ghandi said that you have to be the change… Read More

Plan for the future by focusing on the present

What do you think is the biggest cause of frustration when it comes to building self confidence? It is wishing you were already there – wishing that life was already better or different than what it is right now. When you do that you are focusing on the present. The frustration of not being where you want to be is enough to ensure you give up completely if  you are not happy with your progress because it seems as if nothing has changed. This is one of the reasons I recommend everyone… Read More

Relax your way into self-confidence

I swear by relaxation. Couldn’t get through the day without taking a moment to relax. Don’t think you have to sit for hours and chant to get the most out of being totally relaxed. I can close my eyes for two minutes and just sit there while inhaling deeply and focusing on one word – usually “Peace” – the word is to stop my mind from thinking about everything I have to do. One person I love to relax to is Fridik Karlson. I often put one of his tunes on and… Read More

10 Commandments of Building Self Confidence

Here are what I see as… Read More

Zeigeist : Addendum

This video called Zeitgeist: Addendum is the second in a trio of films by Peter Joesph that are freely distributed and seek to free us from mental slavery (in the words of Bob Marley!) The first one is all about the central banks of America but these two were my favorite. The first video focuses on debt and claims that every dollar produced is attached with debt and the money that pays for the debt comes from the central bank which basically means its one big self generating circle of debt. The second video focuses on… Read More

Building confidence from my perspective

I don’t actually have any answers for you when it comes to building confidence.  All I can do is share what it took to help me build my own self confidence. It took a lot of work and it took years but what helped is reading books, listening to audios and attending seminars. They didn’t help when I needed them to tell me what to do or when I thought that all this material was going to help me without my active participation. I went through a period of buying one self… Read More

day of incredible happiness and sadness

It’s been a funny ole day! One filled with happiness and sadness. I’m alot better than I was (It seems the sore throat, fever, flu thing is everywhere in the UK right now!) I had a serious conversation about book publishing (but dont want to say more than that right now!). Someone made an offer on my house (although there is PLENTY of room for improvement on it!!) I ended a relationship that was more draining than uplifting and I am definitely moving away from Women Internet Marketers and closing it all… Read More
