LEARN FROM THE NEW SCIENCE OF CONFIDENCE.Self Belief is vitally important, but when we are overconfident we miss important signals, misjudge situations and leave ourselves open to criticism from others. This profound book shows through simple practical advice and cutting edge research how to be confident without falling into the trap of arrogance.
Often the only thing separating successful people from the crowd is the beliefs that they have running around inside their heads and their innate self-confidence. But this book isn't about promoting unrealistic positive thinking - it's a book that helps you understand the complex psychology of our beliefs, our assumptions, opinions, values, attitudes, judgements, biases and delusions.
Some of us overestimate ourselves and are overconfident or even unwittingly arrogant and unable to see our flaws. Others amongst us underestimate ourselves and are unaware of our full potential. The reality is the most of us overestimate ourselves in some respects and underestimate ourselves in others.
This book will open your eyes, doing away with unhelpful beliefs and instilling new, more helpful beliefs about yourself and the world. Follow the practical advice within the book and you will make better decisions and be able to take action in order to fulfil your true potential.
