How to transform anxiety into confidence

Anxiety to confidence

I’m not one for promoting simple tricks tips in relation to confidence.

I certainly don’t subscribe to the idea that you can be more confident if you just make a few simple changes to the way you think or behave.

The truth is that building confidence takes work.

But there are one or two things that we can do quite to help us in our daily lives when we are confronted with difficulties that cause us to feel anxious and lacking in confidence.

One of them involves reframing.

Reframing is simply about looking at a situation through a different lens.

It means thinking about things in a way that is different to the way that you would naturally think about them.

In this video, I show you how you can take a quite different view of the emotions you have when are facing a challenging situation but it feels like you don’t have the confidence to proceed.

I show you how you can use those emotions to your advantage, so that you can confront the situation positively and without the normal sense of fear and anxiety.
