Confidence Builders

What is keeping you from taking the steps necessary to have a better life? Why do you remain in a job that is not fulfilling? Why are you still coming to work each day and wondering why you are there?

I'll tell you why. It is because you lack confidence. Lack of confidence can mean the difference between having a six figure income and not. Lack of confidence can stop you from doing something new. Lack of confidence makes you hide your talents. Lack of confidence makes you afraid of success and failure at the same time.

How do you overcome a lack of confidence? You overcome it by surrounding yourself with confidence builders. Where can you find confidence builders? I would suggest joining a club like Toastmasters. A club where you know most people are there because they lack confidence. Toastmasters was built to provide encouragement to those who were afraid to speak and to this day that is exactly what they do.  People get together at least once a month to support and encourage each other through one of their greatest fears- public speaking.

I joined Toastmasters almost two years ago and since then I was able to finally publish a book that I'd been working on for three years. I have also started offering more workshops which has increased my income. I have not reached my goal yet but I am well on my way and I know it is a direct result of the encouragement I receive in Toastmasters. To find a Toastmasters club visit There is a fee to join but if it successfully helps you to a point where you are making six figures, I would say that it's well worth it.
