‘After 15 years as a Sydney Success and Life Coach, I can say hand-on-heart that one of the most common issues I assist my clients with is the lack of self-love and self-confidence. It doesn’t matter whether the external manifestation is poor relationships, a shortage of money, the imperfect career or struggling with negative emotions – confidence, or should we say the lack of it, seems to rear its ugly head’
Lisa Phillips – Nature and Health Magazine 2013
As an experienced Confidence coach, I have worked with thousands of people, males and female, from a wide range of cultures and backgrounds. However, I am delighted to inform you that, with a little work, you can easily learn to build up what I call your ‘confidence muscle’ so that it grows to be a strong and healthy part of your life.
The reason I like to define confidence as being a muscle, is just like any other muscle in our body, confidence needs time and encouragement to gain strength and grow. It is not something which instantly increases overnight, but with consistent and steady care, it will become a healthy and embedded part of who you are. Gaining confidence is a life altering journey. It’s also amazing because you can gain so much just by making little adjustment to your thought processes or taking the tiniest of action steps.
I am well aware that your confidence muscle may not have had a very good start in life, or that it might have been crushed over the years — but you can learn to strengthen this muscle and consequently become a more confident, calm and courageous person.
I suffered from low self-confidence until I hit my mid 30’s. As a child I was bullied at school and as an adult, encountered bullying behaviour from a manager at work. I also spent far too long in an unhealthy relationship as I didn’t have the confidence to get out. All these experiences led to me feeling frustrated and angry with myself for allowing other people to walk all over me, and take advantage of my ‘nice’ nature. The occasional time I did try to be more assertive, I would usually end up feeling selfish or guilty, worrying what others thought of me or feeling scared that I may have upset another person. Finally, after spending far too many years beating myself up and generally believing that everyone else in the world was somehow ‘better than me’ – I took that all important first step into nourishing and building my own confidence muscle. Thankfully, I have never looked back and for the past fifteen years, in my role as a Confidence coach, I assist other people, to build up their very own strong confidence muscle.
