Do you ever wonder why you are confident in some areas of your life and yet in other areas, you have so much fear and self-doubt? The good news is – scientists have discovered a formula for how you can wire your brain for a more action-oriented kind of confidence that boosts your courage to act, even when feeling afraid. In this approachable and game-changing guide to building situation-specific confidence, positive psychology expert Louisa Jewell shows that adopting a resilient mindset will enable a person to show up as their best self at home and in the workplace.
Jewell has deep knowledge of the science of the good life, honed through years of study and practice, and here she presents only the most effective and proven techniques for increasing a person’s grit and confidence. Through stories, reflection questions and exercises, she guides the reader from fear to courage, giving one the ability to accomplish the goals that seemed impossible, and putting the reader on the fast track to flourishing in every area of their life. Wire Your Brain For Confidence is thus a worthwhile guide to conquering self-doubt.
The author, Louisa Jewell, is determined to help people, especially women, conquer self-doubt and flourish in their lives. “Studies have shown time and again that women are less confident than men, but having confidence gets you ahead in life,” says Jewell, who has a Master of Applied Positive Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania and is founding president of the Canadian Positive Psychology Association. “My book presents effective and proven techniques, with real life examples, for increasing confidence and managing self-doubt.”
