Confidence is something many of us wish we had a bit more of, especially in circumstances where we feel powerless.

One way you can think of confidence is that it is our natural state, and actually what happens is that there are blockages to our confidence. The more blockages we have, the less confident we feel.

I am not saying that this true, but it can be a useful way to think about it.

So rather than thinking about what you need to become confident, think about what is getting in the way.

We have been trained to think in terms of boosting confidence. Turn this around. Whatever does boost your confidence is probably smothering something that is sapping your confidence, thus allowing your confidence to shine through.

Wouldn’t it be better to remove the obstacle rather than having to keep overcoming it with confidence boosters every time?

What can undermine your confidence?
