Instant Confidence: How to be Confident Instantly! by The Instant-Series was an enjoyable read. The author explains and defines confidence, most interestingly, as not taking yourself too seriously. It reminds me of the first time I had to get up in front of my whole company, about 50 or 75 people at that time, and make some announcements, or when I finally got used to working with executives (important since I was an executive assistant) and realized “they’re all just people.” Who cares if you’re not a supermodel! Who cares if you misspeak and say something wrong! No one is perfect and everyone makes mistakes. How you handle yourself when it happens is key. If you can laugh at yourself--not taking yourself too seriously--you are learning confidence.

Instant-Series gives exercises to practice building confidence and they make sense to me. If someone were to practice them, I think they would help. Lack of confidence is often caused by fear or doubt in oneself, or fear of judgment by others. I used to feel very shy and timid, especially in high school speech class. High school is a very difficult time for shy people and these techniques could actually be the key to help someone succeed in life. Seriously, if they were too shy to talk, give presentations, or interview for a great job, how far would someone go in life? Learning how to converse with others in any situation is very important too and Instant Confidence includes tips for that. No matter how your fear or insecurity manifests itself, you can find help in Instant Confidence.

My daughter is being bullied and teased because she is different. She is doing her best to ignore it. It breaks a parent's heart to see such pain. After many months of trying to teach her how to stand up for her self, talking with the school, the teachers, etc. I discovered she did not believe in herself. She was listening to those negative naysayers at lunch and at recess. I was reading book after book. Nothing was helping.

I stumbled across a book that changed my entire approach to the lessons I was providing my children. The book Instant Confidence: How to be confident Instantly? caught my attention because of the clear, concise information. It has clear step by step exercises to help teach ways where we are our own worst enemy. The examples and scenarios have helped my family find a way to focus on the solution and not the problem.

I believe self-confidence affects everyone to various degrees. This book helps people who want to reach their dreams develop the confidence they will need to face the fears, doubts, and negative thinking. The positive thinking this book teaches is a valuable tool for everyone. The various exercises will help you open up and speak for yourself. The world would be a much better place if everyone could be proud of themselves.

If you struggle with self-confidence, the book, “Instant Confidence” might be just what the psychologist ordered. The book does an excellent job of outlining things that kill your confidence, as well as things that can boost your confidence. The exercises and tasks at the end of each chapter will help you on your road to be more confident than ever.

This book won’t cure all of your confidence problems, though, unless you take it to heart. The chapters on conquering your fears, overcoming your tendency to be your own worst critic and enemy, and having confidence in whatever you do have to be worked with an open mind and a serious intention to change your way of thinking. If you’re looking for a quick and easy fix, you won’t find that here (or anywhere, to be frank). On the other hand, if you’re ready to start working hard to build up your confidence, this is an excellent resource.
