#WeLearn: Boost Your Confidence – How You Can Be What You Want to Be


On 18 September 2020, WE EMPOWER - G7 Programme organized the Boost Your Confidence: How You Can Be What You Want to Be learning session. The participants learned the ways we can make the shift from self-talk that discourages and reduces confidence to a personal conversation that builds confidence and becomes self-empowering. 

This event was first from the series of #WeLearn learning session organized in September - November 2020. 



Why is it that some of us can take on life’s journey full of confidence while others are unable to fulfil their full potential because of their limiting beliefs about themselves? One difference may simply be the way the conversation you have with yourself about yourself takes shape. We can all learn to focus on empowerment and ‘liberation’ rather than self-talk that is discouraging because it emphasises personal ‘limitation’.

In this short booster, you will learn the ways we can make the shift from self-talk that discourages and reduces confidence to a personal conversation that builds confidence and becomes self-empowering. 

What will you learn in this session?

  • Overcoming limiting beliefs about your capabilities;
  • Using the ABCDE method for building confidence;
  • Using feedback as a wonderful opportunity for personal growth;
  • Using your ‘silent intelligence’ constructively;
  • Being authentically ‘you’ while you build your confidence.
