The Self Esteem and Confidence Mindset Mission and Story

The mission of The Self Esteem and Confidence Mindset

The Self Esteem and Confidence Mindset believes in putting you in control of your self esteem and confidence. By looking at your habits you can see what’s not working in your life. Too many of us (like I did) go through life on auto pilot not looking at our habits and often they are not helping us go for what we want or feel great.

Too many people suffer with low self esteem and confidence in this world and we’ve seen the worst circumstances of what it can do to people. I was fortunate to not hit that level but I was in a very dark place of not liking myself at all. Low self esteem and confidence not only stops people from going for what they want but it impacts negatively on our growth, relationships and stops us sharing our value with the world. An example of this was what I witnessed in my early coaching days, where I saw a lot of great coaches scared to go out and advertise themselves to the world as they were too worried about what others thought, yet someone out there needed them.

By putting you in control of your self esteem and confidence this creates a strong positive knock on to the world allowing you to grow as much as possible.

My story

(Regular moments like this)

(Became more frequent moments like this)

 I’ve had various struggles in the past to be happy and like myself, even though I had what was perceived like a pretty decent life on the outside. Sometimes what would appear confident but when I was alone with myself however there would be some horrible arguments in my head and constant criticising of myself. My self esteem would go up and down like a yo yo, when something was going right I would feel great but when it wasn’t I would attack myself mentally. I was very reliant on external factors to be happy, which I was not in control of. My self esteem  was very weak. As a result my confidence in certain things would also suffer.

Self esteem struggles are going to vary from person to person. I’ve always had a pretty good sense of ambition of what I want to do, but often the acceptance or living in the present I was miserable about. It got me so low, I was constantly comparing myself to other people and feeling horrific about myself. I began to study and learn more about self esteem and discovered that it was formed from my early experiences first of all, and then later experiences. I felt the feeling of not being good enough and unwilling to let love in. After exploring it stemmed from the death of my baby brother when I was two, even though I don’t remember it, it played a really strong role in my subconscious. Even though of course it was not my fault, my subconscious felt it was and left a mark on me for my self esteem.

It got to one point one summer where it hit rock bottom after some set backs. I decided I had enough, and I was going to do everything in my power to get my self esteem as best possible as I could. It then occurred to me that self esteem was like any muscle I just had to work it, like I worked on myself in the gym. What I had on my side was my love of personal growth. I got mentors, coaches, joined  groups, read books, listened to  podcasts, watched the right videos and applying action to build up my self esteem and confidence constantly. I will never stop. I now want to share this with others to help them

I started off as an Author a few years ago but in the last couple of years have become attached to expressing myself through videos and podcasts. Something I built up to do and got very confident with it. It took constant practice to develop my speaking skills and I still work on it now and will continue to do so. I absolutely love doing talks now (some may think that’s weird but I love it).

I kept asking myself what could help me excel quickly in my writing and speaking. Then I found a coach and mentor who helped me progress so much. I decided to become a coach from the benefits of life coaching I had experienced. The idea of helping empower someone else to realise what they are capable of in this world and then seeing them taking action to do this for me was so fulfilling. I believe that only the individual themselves can break through their self limiting beliefs or self esteem limits but coaching helps facilitate people to overcome that.

What can I do for you?

Author

Books:

I’ve written several books which are on Amazon and continue to write. I actually started off as a Children’s Fiction as I always loved those kinds of creative, imaginary and adventurous stories growing up. Then through my time I moved to Mental Health Fiction following a request from a friend before writing my most recent book ‘The Self Esteem and Confidence Mindset’.

Blogs / Short Stories:

I produce regular blogs sharing what I’ve learnt, my own experiences and tips in self esteem, confidence and personal growth. I have also written stories built on own experiences and experiences of those I’ve known to demonstrate struggles in well-being / mental health and how challenges may have been overcome.

YouTube / Podcast speaker

I record regular videos and audios on YouTube, Apple, Spotify and Anchor to articulate messages rather than just text. These are all on the self esteem, confidence and personal growth areas. You can find a link to my videos and podcasts on my homepage. The podcast has grown beyond my imagination having been a top 100 Apple podcast in Health and Fitness and well over 170,000 plays since December 2019.

If you are interested in adding a talk to boost self esteem, power up confidence and liven things up with personal growth, then I can also provide talks for you, check it out here: Speaking

You can find a number of shows I’ve been on too there.

More about me

I’m quite random, sociable, adventurous as well as being hooked personal development which I’ve invested loads on. I have many different interests and hobbies which include: traveling / exploring, playing football, general exercising, social events with friends and family, personal growth work, watching Netflix when I have time, playing my PS4 . One thing I absolutely love to do is read or listen to audio books and podcasts.

In terms of qualifications and continuous personal development I believe life experiences and actions help us to learn the most. After achieving a degree in Psychology I’ve undertaken numerous qualifications and courses including being a certified coach, communication, self esteem / confidence, leadership, neuroencoding, a number of Tony Robbins programs and much more. I like to share the knowledge I’ve implemented as much as possible but I’d love to share specific tools with you in 1:1 coaching. If this is something you’d love now, book some time in right HERE

You can never stop learning, but make that decision to take control of your self esteem and confidence today.
