Elaine Siheraabout this book: Confidence means everything to me, because it took me from poverty and despair in Jamaica to some remarkable achievements in Britain. It has helped me discover myself, my talents, my potential, and my purpose - essentially who I am, what I want, and how to go about it. Confidence has guided my thoughts, decisions, and direction, giving me a fearless desire to pursue my dreams, and to extend myself and my hopes well beyond my own expectations. Confidence is thus the backbone to whatever I do, especially as a minority in a majority society where one is often invisible and deprived of a voice. It gives me the courage to go where others fear to tread, and to turn my dreams into reality, regardless of any obvious obstacles. For me, Confidence is our greatest asset, no matter what else we possess.
In these unsettling times, with the constant fear caused by weak leadership and threats of terror, people need a lot of confidence and self-belief to face each day with hope, reliance, and assurance. The Essential Guide To Confidence introduces, and expands, the Sihera Theory of Confidence©, developed over the past 20 years; a theory based on hundreds of confidence quiz analyses during that time, together with the results of a more recent online survey involving over 600 people. It is about understanding the nature of confidence, and the pervasive way it controls our perception, actions, the choices we make, and the results we get. There is great insight into its nature, roots, and inescapable power to influence human thoughts, choices, and language.
A familiar, but highly misunderstood word, Confidence is explained in a simple way that allows anyone to understand themselves and their routine behaviours. It demonstrates the way personal levels of Confidence decide how each of us sees the world, react to it, and affects our treatment of others. Readers gradually learn how their Confidence is boosted, maintained, and lost; how routine habits actually reduce, or increase, its level, and its true power over self-esteem. Numerous real-life examples reveal how Confidence profoundly influences everything we do, even without us realising it.
Readers should benefit from knowledge of the crucial role confidence plays in personal perception, assertiveness, achievements and success, the quality of relationships, effective parenting, retirement, and ageing positively. By the end of the book, readers can expect a deeper understanding of the nature of confidence and should feel more knowledgeable and empowered to apply it beneficially to their own lives. LOTS of topics for discussion, exploration, and interactive projects.
