We are covering today a self-confidence book that shows you how to do address your self-confidence mind related issues in a simple but radical and very effective way.
When we approach new challenges, is possible that repeated negative thoughts will arise. When this happens, it for sure undermines our self-confidence and our ability to approach the challenge in a constructive and effective way.
There are plenty of approaches to addressing this. For example, affirmations for self-confidence are a simple starting point to re-educate your mind to a healthier mindset.
Sometimes we find that things are hard at the beginning, but then they becomes easier as we work on them as you gain momentum. But other times things become harder and harder, at the point that your mind seems battling against you.
When this happens, it seems that you’ll never be enough motivated, enough confident, enough fearless to be able to confront your challenges.
Well, there’s an important secret about this.
The secret of taking a challenge
Well, the secret is… you’ll never be ready!
There’s a point you must take action. Period.
Whatever you mind says, your action will give you all the answers you are looking for.
This is what The Confidence Gap: A Guide to Overcoming Fear and Self-Doubt is going to teach you.
His author, Russ Harris, is a medical practitioner, psychotherapist, and leading expert in acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), a new approach that merges cognitive therapy, behavioral therapy and mindfulness.
In his self-confidence book, he applies the principles of ACT to the confidence struggle and shows you how to accept whatever you are feeling and taking action instead of fighting against your mind and succumbing to inaction.
The four traps
Along the book, Russ will lead you through the four traps that are keeping you from taking action. You’ll deal with the self esteem trap in part two of the book; the success trap in part three; the fear trap in part four; and the motivation trap in part five. Each of these traps are usually locking your mind and keeping you away from your goals.
The short point is that this self-confidence book will hand you to understand that “you can just try it right now”, whatever your level of preparation or expectation or fear or motivation. Even if your mind will play against you, you can take action and win.
This is a very healthy approach and is in line with our simple 30 day challenge approach.
This self-confidence book gathers great reviews on Amazon and many people reading it share that this has been a life-changing read in many years.
Is this self-confidence book for you?
I think this is an enlightening book and I recommend it especially if you know you should take more action, but you feel like your mind is making it very difficult. Therefore, for example, if you are a chronic procrastinator, suffer often from paralysis by analysis (aka overthinking, especially if this triggers bad feelings), or find difficult taking decisions, you’ll find a fresh perspective here.
If all this resounds with you, then take action and get it. You’ll be glad you did.
