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

    "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.

    "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.

    "Uplifting book.."

    The idea of this book is that, once completed, your outlook on business will change and your confidence level will rise. The author states that most women are competent or confident, but not both and the end goal is to change that. The book is broken up into the following four sections: Relationships, Reputation, Results and Resilience. All of these “R-words” are values that great leaders, in this case women leaders, should value and strive for. Throughout the book the author addresses each of these topics individually, however, they are all equally important and complement one another.

    "Essential and Informative!!!"

    An essential guide for everyone and anyone on how to establish self confidence. Topics such as achieving your goals with success, dealing with your past and removing all negativity are only some of the tips that are explained in detail in the ten easy steps provided by the author. I personally and truly appreciated the very first step on owning where you are and where you want to be. It was the best advice I have ever read on gaining self confidence. I definitely recommend this book accompanied by a five star rating!

    "Pretty Guide!!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Having confidence is a must and it is often hard with job layoffs increasing and sales sometimes harder to make.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Confidence?

    Life in general is much different than it was a few short years ago and having one's confidence shaken is now a much more frequent occurrence.


    Any additional comments?

    This book helps one get in the driver's seat and stay there comfortably.
    I was very pleased with this book from start to finish.

    "Highly recommended!!!"
    What did you love best about Confidence?

    From the outside looking in, my health, financial situation, residence and physical functioning are all worse than they have ever been. I should be miserable, right? Actually, I am happier, more loving and understanding of others, and really excited about life.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Confidence?

    This book is jam-packed with meaningful content and has helped (and continues to help) me immeasurably.


    Any additional comments?

    I learned that I don't have to wait until I'm well, or financially sound, or own my own home, or run a marathon to be happy. It also taught me that I was suffering needlessly, and the good (and bad) news is that I am totally in charge of my own happiness, satisfaction, and bliss.nice one recommended!!!
