    Problem and Promise

    Lacking confidence can lead to missed opportunities, crippling self-doubt, and limited growth. But this article is your confidence booster. 

    It explores the power of self-efficacy, self-confidence, and self-esteem, offering practical tips like confident body postures, mindfulness, setting goals, and positive self-talk. 

    Embrace challenges, learn from failures, and watch your self-assurance skyrocket. With these insights, you'll tackle life's challenges head-on, unlocking your true potential and achieving remarkable success. 


    Here's the TL;DR version of this Blinkist article

    The past 50 years have seen the Self-Esteem Movement surge, fueled by the idea that confidence boosts success. Psychologist Nathaniel Branden kicked it off in 1969, showing improved self-confidence leads to better performance.

    So crack the code and meet self-efficacy, self-confidence, and self-esteem—which are not the same.

    Self-efficacy is about personal control. Self- confidence is about trust in your abilities, and self-esteem covers overall self-worth.

    Belief in yourself is more than a mindset. Confident body postures and mindfulness practice energize you. And don't just think: act confidently. Exercise, visualize success, set meaningful goals, and be your own cheerleader with self-compassion and positive self-talk.

    Fear isn't the enemy, either. It's a companion to courage. Stepping out of comfort zones cultivates courage and drives remarkable achievements. And avoid overconfidence. Collaborate and seek help to strengthen self-worth.

    Building confidence is a journey of embracing challenges, and celebrating progress

    Great app. Good selection of book summaries you can read or listen to while commuting. Instead of scrolling through your social media news feed, this is a much better way to spend your spare time in my opinion.
