Russ Harris offers a surprising solution to low self-confidence, shyness, and insecurity: Rather than trying to "get over" our fears, he says, the secret is to form a new and wiser relationship with them. Paradoxically, it's only when we stop struggling against our fearfulness that we begin to find lasting freedom from it.

The Confidence Gap's narrative, voice and style are unorthodoxically helpful. From someone who has a library full of self-help books and motivational tools, this was by far, the most helpful book I've read. Struggled about 1 year to finish it but it was well worth it. Hooked, trampled and lost in the tyrannical dictatorship of self-judgements & self-justifications, I came to start acting on ACT. 1year later, Diffusion and Expansion have paved the way to a successful, meaningful life.
Start the book, and even if you stopped for a few days, months, years, come back to it again. Unhook yourself, give yourself the chance to win
