Some of us overestimate ourselves and are overconfident or even unwittingly arrogant and unable to see our flaws. Others amongst us underestimate ourselves and are unaware of our full potential. The reality is the most of us overestimate ourselves in some respects and underestimate ourselves in others. This book will open your eyes, doing away with unhelpful beliefs and instilling new, more helpful beliefs about yourself and the world. Follow the practical advice within the book and you will make better decisions and be able to take action in order to fulfil your true potential. The reader of the book will: - understand why beliefs and the many thoughts we have in our heads are often the only thing that distinguish successful, confident, happy people from the crowd - learn the differences between the helpful and unhelpful beliefs running around in your head.
