Rachel Smets – Self Confidence and Stopping Comparisons with Others for Empowerment and Freedom of Choice

Self confidence and where it comes from and whether we can fake it. Comparisons with others and authenticity. Gaining perspective.

My guest today is Rachel Smets, author, TEDx speaker, lecturer and cross-cultural trainer specialising in helping people understand cultural nuances while boosting their confidence levels to achieve their goals.

We will be discussing :

  • Self Confidence. Why are so many of us lacking in self-confidence? Where does this low level originate from? Personal life, professional life, a mixture or is it something deeper?
  • Fake it till you make it – Does faking self-confidence works as well as genuinely increasing this?
  • Stopping Comparisons with Others – What about Authenticity? Frequently we compare ourselves to others – often decreasing our confidence as a result
  • Empowerment and Freedom of Choice – Gaining a new perspective, having more confidence and being the best person that we can be. How can we can move our focus onto our own vision rather than that of those around us?
