Interesting question, don't you think?
It's a fact though. Raising your self confidence levels will improve your life. Having a healthy self esteem makes it so much easier for you to achieve your goals whether that's in terms of your career, your relationships or even just being so much happier about life.
The other amazing thing that happens when you build your confidence is that you'll not only be thrilled about living your life to the fullest, your excitement and energy will also rub off on those around you and you end up helping those you come in contact with. It's a win-win situation. How cool is that?
So, the question really should be,
"How exactly do you build confidence?"
It's certainly not easy searching the web for confidence building tips, is it? You can find lots of self esteem and personal development sites but the majority of them seem to be more interested in only selling you things and won't provide any free information or that information will be at such a high, generalized level that it's basically useless.
You don't want to waste your time searching through hundreds of self help sites picking through what's really valid information and what's just marketing hype. You just want to know exactly what steps do you need to take in order to build your self confidence, right?
Then you're in the right place because that's precisely what this site is all about and that's also what makes this site so different. My goal is to make it quick and easy for you to develop your self confidence, your self esteem and just how you feel about yourself. I also think I provide more free, useful information than anywhere else out there. Yes, you'll find items to purchase on my site but you'll also find hundreds of pages of free advice to help you right now.
It's much more than just working strictly on your self confidence. It's about having practical advice on situations like:
It's about giving you the information you need to deal with the day to day events that you may at first think you have no control
over. You have much more power than you may realize and by knowing what
to do in uncomfortable circumstances means that you'll feel more
confident about yourself. You'll have the skills you need to get you
through any life experience.
My name is Catherine Pratt and I've dedicated years to figuring out this mystery called "confidence". I'm so passionate about this topic that I'm now a professional writer who specializes in the topic of self confidence and I'm also the author of 5 books:
When I first started looking into building my own self confidence, there were lots and lots of web sites but very few that actually provided practical information that made sense and could be used easily and quickly. They also made it seem so hard and appear like it would take me years to make the slightest difference (this turned out to be totally false as I'll show you on my web site). It was all incredibly frustrating.
The other thing that a lot of self help sites seem
to focus on is making you feel like you have to continue to relive
painful memories from the past. I don't agree with that. You want to
move forwards not get stuck reliving your past. Yes, it's important to
take the lessons from the past but you don't need to keep experiencing
the painful memories. In fact, it's better if you don't. That's what I
show on my site. How to move forwards with your life and let the pain of the past go.
So, I basically had to learn on my own but the great thing was that I discovered life is completely different once you're able to gain even just the tiniest bit of self confidence. Another great discovery about confidence is that once you start, it continues to grow and grow and grow.
I went from feeling that maybe if I could just somehow believe in myself more, life would be better to knowing that's absolutely true. I was finally able to achieve my dreams like getting a great job, having a fantastic relationship, buying a house, and so on. I discovered how to be happy with myself and what I was achieving.
I've decided to share with you what I've discovered about building confidence. I want to save you from the frustration I experienced trying to find information that actually works.
As you read the articles on this web site, you'll be amazed at the easy ways to build your confidence that are provided. This site is like no other in that way.
Benefits of this Site
Albert Einstein said,
"Know where to find the information and how to use it -
That's the secret of success."
I got so frustrated with the "useless junk" a lot of other self confidence sites seem to provide. That's not what you need. You need real information and on this site you'll find all completely original articles, activities, strategies, and ideas. I write almost all the articles myself (there's well over a hunded for you to read) and I give you techniques that really do work. I know they work because I use them myself.
My aim is to make Life With Confidence a truly valuable resource for confidence related information
so you can make life altering changes today. My goal is to help you
discover how to move forwards in your life and also to give you the
tools so you can continue to make constant improvement. You'll no longer
feel like you're trapped or that life is just passing you by.
This site provides:
Where Does This Confidence Information Come From?
information on these pages comes from me personally trying different
techniques out in the real world and seeing what the results are. That's
how I know what works and what doesn't. It's not theory I share with
you, it's tried and true techniques.
Some strategies I tried were really positive and others were spectacular failures. I continued on though as I was determined to figure out how this whole self confidence thing works. I've also bought a lot of products, some good, some bad, and I've tried out a lot of different ideas. I hope to save you from a lot of the wrong turns and wasted effort I made along the way.
A lot of the time I felt I really just wanted some support, someone to talk to, or to find some simple solutions and advice without having to pay a lot of money. This didn't seem to exist. Most of the sites I found on the internet seemed to be mostly "hard sell" sites just trying to sell their products or they were confusing, too technical and used too much lingo which I didn't understand.
By setting up this site, I hope to be a supportive place for you and to save you from wasting money on slick advertising campaigns that promise you that elusive confidence but don't live up to their promises. I'll be providing reviews of products and books I've used and am still discovering new ones all the time.
It's a lifelong process
to gain inner confidence but it can also be a pretty incredible journey
because it's life altering. It's also amazing because you can gain so
much just by taking the tiniest of steps. You just need to keep taking
one small step at a time and the confidence just keeps building and
building. I hope to make it as exciting and as easy as possible for you
and think it will be a fun and personally enriching experience for both
of us. Thank you for letting me share the journey to confidence with

We are always in a hurry. Your site reminds us to stop and to
think a bit. Isn’t is that great? Isn’t it the way content site should
be? I ask myself another question which is more important for me: “Will I
come back to this site?” Catherine, I will come!!! I feel comfortable
Kudos to you on this incredible website. I have bookmarked it
and will return time and time again. I can't thank you enough for
providing this resource.
Suzanne, United States
Like the other people who have written in I find your site of great help and comfort and I feel better each time I visit.
Lynn, United Kingdom
Your site has a wealth of information to read and take into
serious consideration. Today I spent a few hours reading and printing
articles for my personal growth toward confidence. I take life way too
seriously and what others think just as much so. When I stick to good
personal confidence training and put effort into it, a whole new set of
thoughts enter my mind. Suddenly it's like all the toxic thoughts that
caused fear and insecurity about myself dissolved.
I also like that in the articles there is not complicated lingo to try
to figure out. You have a good site here and I would recommend it to
anyone-in particular those who need a boost of motivation, confidence,
and learning to build self-esteem. Our world would certainly be a better
place if we all applied the help you have here!
