Barrie starts off in chapter 1 introducing us to the traits of confidence people; these are the top traits that we can have if we apply the action steps and follow the advice in this book. Does your DNA have anything to do with self-confidence? Check it out in chapter 2 where we can also take a free personality test at the end of the chapter. In chapter 3, by acting with confidence through taking action, we can become confident.
What are the barriers to confidence? In chapter 4 we learn that they are: Fear, Worry and Overthinking, Procrastination, Indecision and Doubt. This is a great chapter because it makes us aware of the barriers that are there working against our confidence in the “background” while we are busy doing other things.
Limiting beliefs play a massive role when it comes to confidence. In chapter 4 we learn about the power our limiting beliefs have and how they are formed in early childhood/adolescet years. By understanding this concept, we can take action now to recover from the words and thoughts that corrupted our confidence as young people. Perfection, beauty and appearance affects confidence to a large degree, not just in women but men as well. The positive image we create for ourselves has a direct relationship with perfection. As Barrie points out, by creating a positive image for yourself, you can boost your confidence significantly.
Chapter 7 is a great piece of material. The author talks about people pleasing and how, even though we may have good intentions, it is damaging to our self-esteem and confidence when we do it to gain approval and to be liked. While we may “feel” confident, it is actually a practice that destroys confidence over time. As she points out, in such cases we may minimize our own sense of self worth just to feel okay about ourselves.
In Chapter 8, we learn about the confidence myths that are keeping us stuck. Without an awareness of what is holding you back, you’ll be swimming against the “current of life” and wondering why everything is so difficult. Barrie provides action steps for busting these myths we have about ourselves.
Chapter 9 deals with social awkwardness and how we can overcome shyness to live more confidently. We can often feel ashamed or rejected in social situations. But here, Barrie provides a unique perspective and tip on how to overcome that awkwardness. Chapter 10 is about your POS [Personal Operating System] and how we can implement this to create a list of our top core values. When you understand and can identify your values, you can create change in your life.
The other chapters cover great subjects such as:
— becoming more confident with body language
— raising your emotional EQ for better relationships
— how confidence impacts your income and work
— making confident decisions
— make your life’s mission a mission of building confidence.
The Bottom Line:
Building Confidence is a practical, intuitive, well-researched and action-tasked book that definitely should be added to your library for building confidence, overcoming social awkwardness and forging better relationships; and, throwing your limitations aside so you can live a more limitless lifestyle. I was seeing positive results before I was halfway through the book.
Barrie Davenport is a skilled writer and I feel she has applied everything she has shared in this book in her own life. I recommend this book to anyone who is serious about improving their relationships with self, family, friends and co-workers.
I appreciate what the Author is trying to do, but this is a really hard subject to tackle in only 140 pages. This is more like a deep-space summary on the topic of self-confidence.
There were some concepts that I highlighted and went over with a colleague, but overall we didn't feel like the Author was able to motivate us to action.
