Publisher's Summary

Lack of self-confidence and problems with unhealthy self-esteem are usually the reason why smart, competent and talented people never achieve a satisfying life, a life that should easily be possible for them.

Think about your childhood.

At the age of four or five, there weren't too many things that you considered impossible, right?

You weren't bothered or held back by any kind of criticism; you stayed indifferent to what other people thought of you. An ugly stain on your sweater, or even worse, on your leggings, was not considered a problem or an obstacle.

You could run on a crowded beach absolutely nude, laughing, go swimming in a city fountain and then play in the sandbox with strawberry ice cream smeared in your hair. Nothing and no one could stop you from saying what you wanted to say, even the silliest things. There was no shame in your early childhood; you loved yourself and everyone else.

Can you remember it?

What happened to us?

Parents, teachers, preachers and media stuffed certain beliefs into your head, day after day for many years. These beliefs and attitudes robbed you of your natural, inborn confidence.

Maybe it was one traumatic experience of some kind that changed you, or maybe it was a slow process that lasted for years. One thing is certain - lacking confidence is not your natural, default state. It brings you down and now you have to unlearn it.

Can you name even a single situation in life where high confidence isn't useful?

Confidence is not useful only in everyday life and casual situations. Do you really want to fulfill your dreams, or do you just want to keep chatting about them with your friends, until one day you wake up as a grumpy, old, frustrated person?

Big achievements require brave and fearless actions. If you want to act bravely, you need to be confident.

Along with lots of useful, practical exercises, this book will provide you with plenty of new information that will help you understand what confidence problems really come down to. And this is the most important and the saddest part, because most people do not truly recognize the root problem, and that’s why they get poor results.

A good practical guide on improving confidence

The book simply written that anybody can easily understand. It gives practical tips and advice how to improve your confidence. As I was listening to the audio book, I realized that it was maybe a little too basic for me. I guess my confidence is pretty ok :-) But we are all at different points in our life journeys, so for many other people this simplicity will be extremely helpful. For me, the last part of the book—the NLP exercises—was the most beneficial as I have not done any NLP training before. I need to also do the exercises (not just listen) to get the full benefit.

Enticing & Thought-Provoking First Half

Second half was non-motivating;. Exercises could use research-based data rather than 'how-to-instruction'. Still Would Recommend.

An Excellent Audiobook on Confidence Building


Confidence was a great listen chock full of truths and aha moments as well as exercises on confidence building and NLP tools. This audiobook was really good and I would recommend it for anyone. The author, Ian Tuhovsky talks about topics ranging from accepting uncertainty, self-talk, self acceptance, assertiveness, and self expression. I really liked the part about having a zen-like mindset and eye sight and mind sight. I also really liked the story about the ginger redheaded twins.

I enjoyed Randy Streu's performance so much that I thought he was the author narrating his own book. He did an outstanding job. This was a perfect pairing of author and reader. Again, I'd recommend this one all day.

I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.

Not worth your money or time

This book is terrible. At the beginning of the book this author mentions he had two parents and a nanny, and he had to "overcome" being shy. (eye roll) He goes on to use commonly used statements from Fox News and Breightbart "News" opinion reporters. He loves the"special snowflake" term for example.

But if you're an angry privileged white guy who's struggling because women aren't falling at your feet, than this book is for you.

The confidence guide is here

Hello, I just want to do a quick review, I really enjoyed listening, his voice was upbeat, he helped me focus on my issues and his stories and practical confidence training is inspiring,

This audio book has definitely awaken me, as I sit in my bed recovering, but at least the book has benefited me to help build my self confidence, and do something about it. As Tony Robbins says confidence is an emotional state
Just change our emotional state, then good to go to get to where we want to be.
Thanks for writing this book

Perfect timing

After spending many years working on my inner self, finding ways to deal with anxiety and depression, which was fed by lack of confidence and poor self esteem I thought I had pretty much sussed it. Then after twenty years in a role I loved ( in school ) I have been made redundant.
My confidence and self esteem walked out of the door when I attended my dismissal hearing.
So, for me Ian's book has been a journey back, a reminder but more importantly it has given me the spur to move forward. So, for those who are looking for the first time for insight and help I would recommend this book, it doesn't lead you through the fields holding your hand but rather guides and facilitates after all, you don't build confidence and self esteem without leaving your comfort zone.
For those, like me who have used many of the tools described before and at their core know some of the insights into the way we are all affected by our upbringing, media and society in general but have faced or are facing a massive change this book helps to steady the ship and face the future without a map.
