About This Book
Confidence is one of the keys to success. If you have confidence, it means you believe in your self and are able to handle whatever life throws at you.
This book is based on Cognitive Therapy which itself is based on the basic rule: How we think influences how we behave and even how our bodies react to our circumstances. In other words, situations don't make you feel or respond in a certain way. It's how you interpret each situation that affects how you respond or feel. Thus, a situation may feel upsetting, but it's actually your thoughts about the situation that drive your distress.So if you want to change your reaction, start with your thinking.
This book will show you how to to this in a constructive and postive way that can build a lifetime of skills in this area.
