We can get by in life with some confidence, but without a real, deep confidence from within we may find ourselves stalling. Signs that our confidence is holding us back are feeling like we can’t make an important decision, or worrying what others may think of us if we take a certain path. We may find ourselves ruminating on issues without ever getting anywhere or just experiencing that uncomfortable feeling that we are holding ourselves back. We may feel frustration, a lack of energy or even resentment at others. We can even start to suffer from what the media likes to call “Imposter Syndrome.”
If you’ve ever been there you know this is not a good feeling. Even if it’s only in one area, like your job or relationship, it can seep into others.
Phases like this, where we feel stuck, can slowly creep up on us without us even spotting the warning signs. Alternatively, they can be triggered by a transition or trauma, such as reaching a certain age, a relationship break up or bereavement. Crises like this can provoke us to question our whole life, but without a rock solid feeling of confidence from within, we may lack the resources to do something about it.
I coach people on how to dig deep and find this confidence within, even if it’s currently obscured or even feels lost forever. Whatever you decide to do – change jobs, start a business or just deal with a burning issue – have the confidence to take action is key.
You may not even know what you want to do right now, and that’s fine, it’s all part of the process. Our coaching will be both challenging and fun but we will go at a pace that’s right for you, whether you’re a person who lives for action, or you need to ponder and dip in a toe in your own time.
I offer a complimentary telephone call for us to work out if we are a good fit for each other. Coaching can be purchased in blocks of 6, 10 or 12 sessions. Please do drop me a line here to put something in the diary.
