The Right Direction




“Low self-confidence isn’t a life sentence. Self-confidence can be learned, practiced, and mastered–just like any other skill. Once you master it, everything in your life will change for the better.”
Barrie Davenport.


Confidence is a tool we can use in our everyday life to do all kinds of empowering things. It enables us to stop second-guessing our self, helps us with managing our fears and being able to do more of the things that really matter to us.

Confidence is built by taking risks and learning to be independent. It is all about having a go and learning from our mistakes. The more skills and experience we build the more able we feel to accomplish anything.

By having a ‘can do‘ attitude were we are willing to give things a go, knowing that our world will not fall apart if we make a mistake and we can always try again.

As we successfully complete tasks and goals, our confidence that we can complete the same and similar tasks again increases.

Importantly, learning and research can help you to feel more confident about your ability to handle situations, roles and tasks. By doing something you have learned a lot about you put theory to practice which develops confidence and adds to the learning and understanding.

And most importantly, try to remain cheerful and have a positive outlook on life. Decide to only complain or criticise when necessary and when you do, look to do it in a constructive way. Look to offer others compliments and congratulate them on their successes. Positive thought can be a very powerful way of improving confidence.

Gaining experience and taking the first step with something new can, however, be very difficult. Often the thought of starting something new is worse than actually doing it, this is where preparation, learning and thinking positively can help.

Take yourself in the right direction for you today……begin that thing that you have been putting off starting for a while now.

“you can, you should, and if you’re brave enough to start, you will.”
Stephen King
