6 Steps to Authentic Self Confidence for Women – InPower Women

Why would anyone follow a leader with no self-confidence? They wouldn’t.Do women struggle with self-confidence more than men? Yes.Then why are we surprised when there aren’t as many female leaders as male leaders in our businesses and society? We shouldn’t be. Now, I know very well that moving women in to more leadership positions is a bit more complicated than this and I’m not trying to suggest an easy fix to women’s inequality… but I am saying that for too long women have “bought” the stories society has told us about how we “can’t lead like a man” (which, by the way, research says is true) and that “leading like a woman won’t work” (which, by the way, research says is not true.)The truth is we can do a lot more ourselves to build our confidence levels that will give us credibility on the leadership track Continue reading

let the children play: Primary school bans handstands. What next?

Photo CreditAnd in a world gone completely mad, one Sydney school made the decision this week to ban handstands, cartwheels and somersaults unless “under the supervision of a trained gymnastics teacher and with correct equipment.” But wait, that’s not all. Last week it was revealed that a Melbourne Primary School, had placed a ban on balls in the playground before and after school. I spent my primary school years covered in mechurochrome from scrapes received on our asphalt playground, but that didn’t worry me – or my parents – in the slightest. In fact, we kids at Balgowlah Heights Primary School in the 1970’s and 1980’s wore our mechurochrome-covered cuts and scrapes with great pride and continued our handstand games of ‘hey presto’ without missing a beat. A sprained ankle or a banged up knee seems a small price to pay for the sense of pride and accomplishment you get when you finally master a cartwheel. Continue reading

The Narcissist Personality « healthpsychologyconsultancy

The Narcissist PersonalityJuly 23, 2012 by healthpsychologyconsultancyI have been writing a personality column for Natural Health, where each month I provide some insight into different personalities. Here is some insight into The Narcissist. Does this sound like anyone you know?Meet the narcissist.  Underneath the narcissists display of unwavering confidence is an exaggerated sense of self-importance.  They have six key traits that protect this self-confidence from crumbling: Imagined superiority – they exaggerate their achievements and accomplishments, assigning these to their superiority Need for admiration – their need for admiration is never-ending Sense of unlimited power – they consistently fantasise about how brilliant, successful, beautiful, and ideal they are Entitlement – they expect others to comply with their wishes and demands without question Exploitative – they don’t think twice about exploiting and taking advantage of others in pursuit of their own ends Distorted self-image – they think other people envy them NegativesThese are some of the traits to watch out for in a narcissist: Don’t expect validation or praise from narcissists – it threatens their sense of superiority Their arrogance can drive others away or cause them to lash out in anger and frustration They can be very manipulative, blaming their shortcomings on the jealousy of others They are extremely competitive – winning is vital They can employ subtle efforts to undermine you and make you feel insecure or insignificant No one can ever satisfy their high standards, so they can be very critical They often disguise criticism with jokes  Positives As with any personality type, the narcissist has a few positive traits too: They work hard Perfectionism means they always do their best They can make good leaders They are ‘doers’ and get things done Their competitive streak and inflated confidence can inspire others to also do their best THE SELF-CENTRED NATURE OF THE NARCISSISTIn the mind of the narcissist, they are like a King or Queen, and everyone should bow before them and shower them with praise. They believe they ought to be at the Centre of everything and that everyone, even strangers, should acknowledge that they have the first and last say about anything. They consistently long for other people’s admiration; they have a constant need for it, while at the same time they generally show complete disregard for other people’s thoughts and feelings.HOW DO I DEAL WITH A NARCISSIST?Ignoring narcissistic people at work or in your home might work on occasion, but is rarely productive.

How to Build Self-Confidence – Myrko Thum

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt Everybody wants to have self-confidence. Companies want self-confident people. Women want self-confident men and vice versa. Self-Confidence gives you the ability to show your full potential and to be what you want to be. It is a core part of personal development.I would even say it’s like a little framework for personal growth since everything we think and do influences our self-confidence. Continue reading

The Journey I Have Endured

I recently revisited a post that I commented on a few years back. It was a thread that went on for over two weeks, and it was one of my first brushes with other mothers not of my thinking. Many had very different journeys than I had, and most were not liking what it was that I was saying. I am a firm believer in everyone having a voice, no matter what the muse is you should be heard in order for others to learn. This was one of the comments that I made there with some changes to omit names. Continue reading
