When it comes to asking people what it is that they would like more of, along with money, having self-confidence and being more assertive is probably at the top of the list. After all, having self-confidence can give us a huge advantage and is responsible for propelling us in our careers, our love life, and how we view ourselves as a whole. This in turn, has a knock on effect on how we feel about ourselves and ultimately our self-esteem.

Having self-confidence will give you the courage to take chances and risks that you might not ordinarily take advantage of. Having belief in yourself will ensure you never let an opportunity pass you by and you'll discover what it means to realise your full potential.

Section 1: Introduction To The Course

This is just a tiny bit of housekeeping before we start our course!

About Me
Section 2: About Self-Confidence
Self-confidence goes by many names: assertiveness, composure, poise, presence. The list goes on.

This lecture kicks off this self-confidence course confirming that it is indeed something that we're all searching for and wanting in abundance!


There are various downloadable resources that are contained within the course and I have included them here so they are in one handy place!  Enjoy!

Self-confidence is something everyone seems to want, but not many people stop to think what self-confidence actually is. Before we can even talk about boosting self-confidence we need to discuss the nature of self-confidence.

I've included a great activity that really let's you explore what you'd like to do but lack the confidence to do it.


Some inspiring quotes on confidence and what it means to be self-confident!

Section 3: About Beliefs

We look at the two important principles here surrounding our beliefs. These include the sum of our beliefs and also what we think is the truth even if we have no evidence for it.


This lecture lends itself to confirmation bias. Confirmation bias is when we look for evidence to support something that we already believe to be true.

This is a great lesson to get to grips with in the quest for becoming more self-confident!


In this lecture we look at the example of Michael, and his boss, Trudy. Michael believes he is a terrible writer and is left feeling somewhat dented after Trudy asks him to write a presentation!


In this concluding lecture of 'Belief and Bias' we look at why people find it difficult to remove or change a fundamental belief they may hold. For some people they choose not to change (even if it's for the better), because it can shake up their sense of identity.


Here are some practical ways in which you can help to bolster your self-confidence!

Quiz: Beliefs

Section 4: Too Little / Too Much!

Now, we all want to be as confident as we can, but there are times when we need to be realistic in respect of our talents. The Dunning-Kruger Effect is a term given to people who have no awareness. It is an incredibly interesting topic and one I'm sure you will enjoy learning about!


The Imposter Syndrome is a very real concern for a lot of people who are living with low self-confidence. It basically refers to anyone who has a belief that their successes and achievements are down to luck rather than merit. This lecture explores the Imposter Syndrome "curse" with a practical exercise that will help you dispute the curse and ensure that you feel proud of what you've achieved and not feel like a "fake".


This is a great exercise on self-awareness as well as self-confidence. This lecture is concerned with the principle of "Show, don't tell". It is all about creating a character without actually giving explicit details away, and here we turn this principle on ourselves!


This lecture is all about a mental confidence builder!

Section 5: Overcoming Fear

Here are five small exercises that will help you build on your self-esteem!

So what is it that we are trying to “buy” with the currency we call self-confidence? To answer this question we have to talk about something called "Loss Aversion".

Loss aversion is what happens when we do something in order to avoid the pain of loss.


In this lecture we look at some practical ways in which you can overcome fear in order to advance. Building on your self-confidence will help you to expose yourself in a gentle way in overcoming any fears or anxieties that may be holding you back from achieving what it is you want from your life!


How can we apply this lecture to our own lives? It really is as obvious as it sounds. In fact you’re doing it as we speak. Gaining knowledge about something you fear! The more you know the more equipped you are in achieving what you want and overcoming fear that is holding you back.


This lecture is learning about the SWISH technique.  The SWISH technique is take from NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming).  It is often used for addressing negative habits but is equally effective for building on self-confidence.

Section 6: Self Confidence in Social Situations

This is a bonus lecture taken from my Body Language course, here on Udemy.  I've included this because I think it's really relevant to self-confidence.  If you like it, why not have a look at my body language course, which covers quite a bit of self-confidence!


Having some emergency confidence is something that we all need to know how to draw upon. Regardless of who we are, there will be times and situations that call for an extra boost of self-confidence to be able to influence an outcome!

7 Day Confidence Challenge

Social anxiety is a real concern for a lot of people, even more so when a situation calls for a one to one conversation with another person. You'll discover the best skill in any conversation is being able to listen effectively!

Being a confident negotiator is a key skill in getting what you want in life, but it means you need to know both what you and the person across the table are actually doing.

This lecture will give you some strategies to get ahead in negotiations.


We've all been there. When it comes to romance and the whole dating game, having self-confidence is the difference between getting a date and not. As we know confidence is such an attractive quality when we're looking for a mate and so getting in right is going to stand you in good stead!
