Publisher's Summary

You will never quite know how many opportunities you have missed by lacking a little self-confidence when you need it most.

Whether it's nailing that job interview, speaking in front of a crowd, or asking that someone on a date. All too often people fall short in these moments as they aren't equipped with the cutting edge confidence to adequately deal with them.

Not anymore.

James Daugherty is an intelligence expert and former CIA spy who specializes in all forms of communication. But there's one thing that underpins everything, confidence. It's what keeps spies alive.

However, he never realized quite how much his intelligence tactics on building general confidence, prepping for specific assignments, or dealing with stressful situations on the fly would help everyday people in civilian life.

Imagine how different your life could be if you were able to operate optimally in every situation.

In this eye-opening and engaging book, Daugherty gives listeners a firsthand look into the trials and tribulations he dealt with in the field as a CIA operative and no-nonsense guide revealing how to:

  • Build general overriding confidence (that lasts)
  • Step-by-step strategies to overcome limiting beliefs
  • Prepping for important "missions" (interviews, meetings, dates) you have prior warning for
  • Positive visualization techniques
  • Body language tips for making a great first impression
  • Breakdown and use of the OODA loop process to efficiently deal with stressful situations
  • Spy tactics to deal with social anxiety on the fly

    "Really an helpful Book!!!"

    Before I bought the book, I was looking for some more good idea's abouthow to deal with people, which, I feel, is the foundation for everything. This book was more powerful than anything I ever expected, and I expected a lot based on the title. This book is written succinctly and very articulately and will change or increase the way you deal with people. FOR THE BETTER. period. this is THE book. I wish I had read this and book at the beginning of my life.

    "exceptional product"


    A must listen for anyone one who works with others and wants to build a prosperous and effective team. Well written, easy to hear simple solutions. It all begins with you!

    The successful people mentioned in the examples are long dead, some you may have never heard of. For me, this added to the book's charm.

    This is an excellent guide to help improve your life and bring true happiness. I could not believe how it improved my life in such a short amount of time! I have the kindle edition and listen while I drive. Learn why people react the way they do and how to change their reaction.

    Story
    "Helps me to get up and starts the now..."
    Would you listen to Confidence again? Why?

    yes cuz some info's where very good so i heard it again and again.


    Which character – as performed by Tom Taverna – was your favorite?

    I enjoyed it


    What did you learn from Confidence that you would use in your daily life?

    I have heard many books with a similar theme but it's nice to see so many ideas to try in one place. I enjoyed it, have it highlighted and will reread as needed. Self-discipline is tricky. It's so easy for me to find myself in the escape mode - how can I start doing my exercise,or maybe I will start tomorrow..


    Any additional comments?

    Always the delaying reason whatsoever. But this book offers techniques to help combat those demons. I would recommend it<br/>

    "Loved listening it!"

    I love the friendly tone of the author as he explains each principle featured in this book. From the introduction, I had so much fun listening a book that has serious life and career lessons tackled. It shows that the writings here is being personally lived by the author and emits the same vibe to be transferred to the listener. The confidence and productivity tips are worth trying.

    "A must have!"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of Confidence?

    A must have for your library. Well written skilled hands on approach for dealing with people and getting to root cause of why we do what do. Skills which you can apply right away in every day personal and business situations and yes including dealing with those crazy neighbors. I have already seen a difference using these skills in my business, family life and in my bottom line working in sales.


    Any additional comments?

    Thanks to the author for this wonderful Book!!!
