Believe it or not, we all have a ‘reserve tank’ of potential that when accessed, really opens the door to greater levels of fulfilment and positive results in our personal and professional lives, but the question is not how do we access it, it’s what is stopping us from accessing it?
Maxwell Maltz, was a leading American cosmetic surgeon and author who once said, “low self-esteem is like going through life with the handbrake on”. These words resonate with so many! I too have experienced this and can relate to it. Very often, even the most outwardly confident people, lack a genuine inner self-confidence and self-esteem, they have learnt to purely mask it, and this can be exhausting! The under-lying theme to many of my client’s challenges, is low self-esteem or self-doubt.
