Why is it that some people have all the confidence in the world to pursue their dreams and some cower at the thought of taking a risk?
When I reflected, I realized that my current confidence levels relied on past experiences that helped shape me into who I am today. Confidence is not something that can be taught, instead it is instigated by self-belief and is learned as one takes part in new experiences that life has to offer. You can be inspired by another person’s confidence, but it doesn’t necessarily offer you tools to build your own confidence. Often it can plant seeds of doubt on your own abilities.
I was never confident about my decision to become a plumber, but I threw myself into doing an apprenticeship because I knew the outcome I wanted to achieve. It took a lot of mind strength to finish my apprenticeship because I was confident that if I gave up I could get a job anywhere in marketing or administration because of my previous work experience. But I persevered because I didn’t want to live with regret and the lingering question of ‘what if?’ and I’m no quitter. I like to finish what I’ve started.
As a result of being the only female in most of my Tafe classes and dealing with tradesmen on construction sites, I am confident when talking to a room full of men. I am also confident in introducing myself to new people. Had I not experienced working in these environments and developing my self-belief as a skilled tradeswoman, I’m not sure I would have that confidence.
There are so many factors that can prevent one from being confident and it’s important to identify what they are and ways to counteract them.

I read the book in one sitting and the book inspired me to be more confident in certain areas of my life where I’ve been lacking. I am also mentioned in the beginning of the book where I explain how I had positive role models in my family which enabled me to confidently take risks. I feel very humbled to be included in this book and nothing builds your confidence more when someone writes in their book that they are inspired by what you do.
All the proceeds of this book go to IMPACT for Women, an Australian charity that supports women and children who have fled from family violence.
I’d encourage you to purchase this book if you have issues with self-confidence. Confidence is something that us women battle at one time or another in our life and it can be debilitating and prevent us from living the life we want to live.
How confident are you at the moment? Have you ever battled with self-doubt which has made you less confident?
