Get Into a Positive Frame of Mind with Self Help
In this self help primer I'm going to help you develop or improve your mindset to make building confidence easier. I'll also take you through identifying and setting goals that are specific to your needs. For your inspiration there is also an article about the power of the mind, the greatest resource you have.
Must I help myself? Is there no other way?
Making any personal or life changes inevitably involves self help. Building your self confidence is no exception. You could go to a therapist. That is an option, but the ultimate aim of all good therapy is to enable you to help yourself! The bottom line is - no one else can do it for you.
The do-it-yourself approach saves you money you might otherwise have spent on a therapist but does that mean you will lose out on expert knowledge? Certainly not. Much of the information I share with you on the site was acquired through personal experience in building my own self confidence. The rest is derived from my past profession as a therapist and the experiences of others.
Introducing the Tool Box
Think of self help as the tool box containing an array of useful tools or techniques appropriate for the job you are going to be doing. It comes with its own do-it-yourself manual. Have you ever built furniture from a flat-pack and ignored the piece of paper that tells you the best method of assembly, then stood back to admire your handiwork only to find the door is on the wrong way? Hmmm.....
Save your time and energy by clicking on the following links for the best approach to bring to your creative project - yes, I mean your project of building confidence. This self help manual will enable you to get the greatest leverage from the tools and make sure you get your doors on the right way!
