A prescriptive, commonsense approach to self-confidence and success

With his bestselling book, What's Stopping You, Robert Kelsey helped thousands of people conquer their fear of failure and unlock their full potential in life.  Now Robert is applying his unique approach to the subject of confidence. According to Robert, it’s not something that can simply be injected into us through motivational exercises and positive thinking.

Then we are shown how to turn this around, by examining the traits that make someone confident.

  • Follow-up to the ground-breaking bestseller, What's Stopping You?, with the same intelligent approach to self-help
  • A road map to help us break down the barriers that make us shy away from achieving our full potential
  • How to recognize what you’re good at, but also what you're not good at
  • Includes tactics for maintaining self-assurance and learning how to apply these in real-life practical situations
  • Based on extensive research and personal experience

"Everyone has moments of doubt - this practical and persoanl book can help remove those demons and boost morale.  I recommend it strongly"
Luke Johnson, RSA Chairman, Financial Times columnist and author of Start It Up!

"This combination of searing honesty and genuine curiosity about how our lives are shaped makes for compelling reading"
Fi Glover, multi-award winning braodcast journalist and BBC radio presenter

From the Back Cover:

Do you lack confidence or self belief?

Join the club. Millions of otherwise smart people lack the confidence to achieve their full potential – at work, in their careers and even in their personal pursuits. Yet confidence isn’t something that can be conjured from motivational exercises or via quick-fix techniques.

Confidence is something you must build for yourself. It takes planning and action, deciding where you want to gain confidence and how it must be won. It will require courage, optimism and resilience.

In this follow-up to his international bestseller What’s Stopping You? Robert Kelsey offers a deep understanding of confidence, suing extensive research analysis, as well his own experiences, to help you to:

  • Identify the truth about confidence – its root causes, as well as the damaging self beliefs that generate poor confidence
  • Accept who you are, while planning your path towards confidence through achievement
  • Understanding the myths around confidence, such as the need to be outgoing or to have talent
  • Overcome the most common barrier to strong confidence: other people
  • Deal with other barriers to confidence such as shyness, anxiety, stress, prefudice and even hubris

 

Review:

Kelsey has produced a thoughtful and easily accessible book. While it will be of interest to a broad audience, its focus on preventing hubris and achieving potential should resonate with managers (Irish Times, 21st January 2013) ..an excellent book to study, to make your companion and to help you discover what s holding you back and what you could do to improve your situation.' (parentswithouttears.com, January 2013) another helpful practical guide for those clear minds who already know what s missing-confidence all the good decisions and ideas must have a strong base to carry them out; that s what confidence and this book can bring. (Start Your Business, January 2013) admirably broad minded, covering everything from depression to procrastination and calling in almost every philosopher on the market for nuggets of wisdom. (People Management, February 2013) practical, helpful advice (The Sun, 8th February 2013) All good decisions and ideas must have a strong base to carry them out, that s what confidence and this book can bring. (Start Your Business, February 2013) The book has range, depth, integrity and whilst it doesn t threaten you with quizzes or exercises, the congruence of all theories he draws on and the consistency of the message make it worthy of your time. (HR Zone, June, 2013)
